Identify Your iPad One of the ﬁrst things I did when I got my iPad is created an ownership lock screen. This is an image that appears in the lock screen mode. I used Keynote... You can use whatever program you are comfortable with. All I did was insert an image and text box into a new slide. In Keynote, you can export out as an image. In PowerPoint, you can do a “Save As Pictures” option. There are a lot of different ways to do this part: Once I had the image, I just saved it to my Dropbox folder...it was then available to any of my devices where I have Dropbox installed. Once in Dropbox, I saved it to my photo library. From here I selected the image and chose the option to use as wallpaper. I chose this to be my lock screen. I could have chosen it to be both my lock screen and my home screen, but I like the variety!Tuesday, May 15, 2012
