Good to know

Before you get started, make sure you have good photos of the characters in your story. 

Before you create your book it might help to look at our youtube video guidance.

Don't want to use your photo as the avatar?  Head to and create a character there, then download that as a png and use that instead of a photo.  If you do this, make your character darker than you normally would.

Transgender parents may find the Magic of You with Photos more suitable.
