I don’t know if you’re aware of this nifty app called Instagram that edits photos on your phone. Once you’ve taken a picture and applied one of the 17 filters you upload it to the Instagram site where your followers can see it in a feed similar to Facebook. You can follow other people and see the pictures they take.
It’s pretty fun insofar as I can share my photos with friends, but the limited options for filters got a little boring after a week. Great for quick snaps, but to make them a little more interesting or unique, you need another app. Or two.
(I love this picture)
I got another one that makes collages with more than one photo. It’s called Photo Grid (there are lots of different ones to choose from). I used it to make this collage, which I then opened in Instagram and added a filter.
Then I found a good filter app called Pixlr-o-matic. With that app, I can add hundreds of filters, borders and overlays, then post on Instagram, with or without adding another filter. This photo is edited only in Pixlr-o-matic.
These apps are all free, which makes me like them even better. And it really isn’t complicated to edit in one app and switch to another. Takes a few seconds.
Here are a few of my favourites taken over the last 3 weeks (in addition to the ones I already posted).
