Creating Auras in Aurasma Studio 

by: Daisy Marino

The Aurasma Studio is a wonderful way to create Auras for your classroom work. Do not be overwhelmed by the steps below. This is seriously easy. I create Auras in less than ten minutes, and it makes a huge impact on my students’ work. When you open the studio up you will see purple icons on the right side of the screen. The purple Help icon will give you tips if you get lost. The first thing to do is make your Aurasma Studio account which is super easy. Next, it is time to create magic for your students. Here is how I create Auras in the Aurasma Studio:

CLICK ON THE PURPLE TRIGGER IMAGES ICON

-Click on the + button in the top left hand corner

-Name your trigger

-Click Browse

-Choose image

-Click open

-Click save

(Now it will “think” for a couple of seconds. When it’s finished the save button will be muted in color. When this happens click on “Mask Opacity” and scroll the bar all the way over to 100%. Now click save again.)
