Want to turn your images into a Photo Showcase iPad App? Use Photo Showcase App Project Source Code (www.codestore.co.uk)
Step 1: purchase and download the software from here (choose the “Comic Project”)
Step 2: Make sure all your comic book sheets are jpeg format image files.
NOTE: If you have a pdf use Zamzar to convert it to jpegs online for free.
Step 3: Re-name the image files in the order the sheets appear using the naming format photo1.jpg, photo2.jpg, …, photo99.jpg
NOTE: the file names are CASE SENSITIVE. Make sure all letters are lower case and are .jpg NOT .jpeg
Step 4: Edit the HTML format descriptions of the sheets. Do this by opening up your TextEdit program under Applications. Paste the following code:
<TITLE>This where your description goes</TITLE>
Save this as a web page (.html) file with the name photo1.html, photo2.html, etc.
Step 5: Download and install Xcode
Step 6: Open the Photo Showcase App project in Xcode.
Step 7: On the left pane, in the resources group, you will see the folders Photos and HTML. Delete the example files from those folders
Step 8: Right-click the Photos folder and add your files to the project (Add Files –> Existing Files)
Step 9: Right-click the HTML folder and add the photo.html files you created
Step 10: On the left-pane, click the file PhotoAppViewController.m, and find the block of code below (NOTE: You will need to know the number of pages you have and Change the BOLD values):

//Users can share photos via email, here you can set the default email subject
//and message to display along side the photo
emailSubject=@”Check out this photo“;
emailText=@”Hey, thought you might like this…“;
//Please look in the PhotoApp-Info.plist to set the name of your App (Bundle Display Name)
//**User Customisation End**
STEP 11: Click Build and Run to test your App on the iOS Simulator or your iOS device!
STEP 12: You may also replace the Apps icon files by replacing icon72.png and icon57.png with your own images.
NOTE: “.png” file format can be exported from open source photo editing programs like Gimp. Also make sure you name your files the same exact name.
FINAL STEPS: Submit the App to Apple per the instructions on the developer page
