How to Install Custom Fonts on your iPad or iPhone using the free Fontcase App

Video Transcript

Let’s take a quick look at how we can install some custom fonts onto our iPads and iOS devices.

Installing fonts on iOS devices is always a little bit tricky but the new Fontcase app (which is free to download), it makes it a little bit more straightforward.

First of all I’m going to find a font that I want to install -you can get this from any source you like, I’m going to use Google Web Fonts.

I’m going to search for one called Varela which I use quite a lot from here I’m going to download it straight into my iCloud Drive in the downloads folder.

When you’ve got that font file into the Files app on your iPad, or iOS device you can then open up the Fontcase app.

From here go to the top left corner and choose Import and navigate to that font file.

When it shows up in the list you can tap on it to get a preview and you can add as many font files as you like at this stage.

Then, when you’re happy, go to the top right corner and press Install.

Here you’re going to choose Download Fonts And then you’ll be told that it’s installing a profile (this is okay).

You’ll need to go to the Settings app now where you can then choose ‘Profile Downloaded’ and iOS will let you decide if you’re happy to have that running on your device.

If you want the font press Yes and Install and that should be the whole process complete.

Now you’ve installed your custom fonts you should be able to access them from other apps.

If I go into Pages now and highlight my title, that new font, Varela Round, will show up in my Font library.

This is a really great way to customise the work you’re making on your iPad and it’s a little bit cumbersome, but when it works you’ll be using these new fonts all the time.

How to use Emoji in Markup to Safely Censor Pupil Faces in Photos

Video Transcript

Okay, let’s show you a really quick way to hide a pupils face in a photograph using an emoji.

When you’ve got a photograph of a pupil you want to use, tap onto Edit in the top corner and then press the three little dots and choose Markup.

Normally here you can use the pencil tools and the highlighters to colour in your image or to add annotations, but if you press the plus button at the bottom you can choose text.

Double tap on your new text box and then you can choose to add an emoji. I tend to go for an Emoji that mirrors the expression of the child in the picture and then tap on it to add.

From here you can use the font menu to make the size bigger by dragging that slider all the way up. Try and match it to the size of the head for a better result.

Then you can just drag it across your page, use two fingers to rotate and position it exactly where you want it to be.

Press done in the top corner when you’ve finished and your photograph will now be saved with that emoji on the childs face.

Much better for safeguarding, much better for online privacy and now it might be an image that’s safe to share if your school will allow it.
