Built-in Image Search 
The built-in image search gives students a safe and easy way to find images from many sources including the Library of Congress, NASA, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Wikimedia Commons, and a filtered web search. Once a puppet is saved and exported, citations for the images are included at the end of the video.

Features of Shadow Puppet:
* Import images from the camera roll or the image search. Images can be resized within the app.
– Tap on the lower RH corner of an image to read a caption and information about it.
