A new batch of props is now available in the Art Library – City street objects and a whole bunch of tools! With all these cool tools at their disposal, who knows what the students will build next… Look for the new items in the Street and Tools collections in the Comic Builder’s Art Library.
Comics have a new option available – click on the download button to save your comic as an image to your computer.
Once you’ve clicked it, depending on your browser, the image will automatically save to your Downloads folder, or you will be prompted where to save your comic.
Once you’ve saved your comic, you can treat it like any other image – add it to a PowerPoint presentation or Word document, or edit it in Photoshop.
If you have ever wanted to save your class picture as an image, we’ve just added a new feature that will make it a snap. Move your mouse over the class picture and you’ll notice a new Save button appears.
Click it, and you’ll be prompted to choose a location to save your class picture.
Once the picture has saved, you’re free to manipulate it as needed – print it, add it to your blog, put it in the school year book, the possibilities are endless!
Today we’ve added a new way of sharing comics outside of your classroom – blog and image links!
Click on the blog icon beneath a comic to view the embed and image tags needed to put your comic in to a blog or on web page.
Teachers can enable or disable this feature in their classroom by going to their settings page.
For more information on how to add the embed or image tags on your blog, visit our help site.

We’ve just added a new batch of props to the Art Library – Rock band instruments! Now students can rock out with a selection of guitars, drums, keyboard, microphone and even sheet music. Look for these new items in the ‘music’ collection while in the ‘props’ tab of the Art Library.
By extremely popular demand, fully poseable pets have joined the Bitstrips for Schools Art Library!
Our new cat and dog are just as flexible as human characters – you can give them an amazing range of emotions and choose from a variety of preset poses. Or put them into Pose Mode and manipulate them any way you can imagine.
To turn on Pose Mode, just double-click anywhere on the cat or dog’s body. It’ll become highlighted in yellow, which means you can now click on any individual body part and position it however you want! The combinations are virtually endless.
Look for our new pet friends in the Comic Builder Art Library under the Characters tab. We have a feeling they’ll soon be more popular than people!
