  7. 7
    We have the option to choose something that's grouped together. It can be grouped by month or by location.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    It will need to have more than 1 photo grouped together. You can't just have 1 photo. It will show us the photo, but it will not allow us to do anything.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    What we need to do is choose something like this group at the top left-hand corner, which is a pre-existing folder.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    The other option is to merge photos. To merge photos, we need to make sure that this button on the lower bottom, in the center gray strip, is not expanded.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    This button expands the folders so they all show their photos. We don't want that. We need the photos to existing within their folders.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    We then have the option to press this button on the same gray strip at the bottom which shows the three lines.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    When this button is pressed, you can see that all the photos are highlighted and we have the option to merge them by pressing on the photos we would like to merge.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Even though they may be from different locations, we can still merge them. Later we can just split the story and the photos will go back to their original location. Once we've selected the photos we want, press this button here, which is the left button on the gray strip on the bottom that resembles two photos, one slightly above the other.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Now they will merge into one folder. You can see at the top there are 13 photos that have all merged into one folder.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Now press the tile for the merged photos. Now we see our photos.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    If we press on 1 photo, we will bring it up, and we can zoom in on it by double tapping it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    We can also edit it. As you see here we have the edit button at the bottom. It is the icon that resembles a pencil in the second row from the bottom.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    When you press the edit button you will see that you have the opportunity to edit it.

    We can also watch a preview.

    We can also see a map of where these photos were taken.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    We can also publish our photos. This application allows us to publish the finished stories on to a website, which is the Microsoft Lumia Storyteller website, where people can view them. You do this by pressing the publish button, which is the button at the lower right-hand side on the gray strip. It's the button that has the "up" arrow in a circle. You can make the story private, where only people who are given the URL can watch it, or you can make it public which would make it available for anyone to watch. That would be up to you.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    What we are going to do now is watch our story. We can do this by swiping to the left. To the preview screen.

    I will press the play button at the center of the preview screen.
