No one can deny the importance of online aesthetic appeal. Whether it a business website, product or social share – it better be sensational.
Thankfully, there’s an app for that – thousands in fact!
But I want to share 3 photo apps capable of transforming even the most mediocre photo-taker into a skillful photographer with beautiful pictures to post online.
The VSCOcam culture is exploding. It’s a powerful photo-editing app boasting a multitude of ways to color, shape and ready your pictures into gorgeous portraits worthy of any website, blog or wall.
But it’s not just a photo-editing app.
Inside the beautifully structured interface is a social community of photographers who share and save their favorite photos at will.
Additionally, VSCOcam offers a full store of filters combinations, additions and creative bits to maximize pictures.
Suspiciously similar to Instagram, it’s only a matter of time before VSCOcam generates a community of intimidating size compared to other visual social platforms.
Additionally, they’re smarter. VSCOcam is a FREE download, but there’s plenty you’ll want to purchase – designating this a money making social network from the get go.
My favorite feature: SHARPEN. Makes my iPhone 5S camera look all pro and ish!
It’s unique feature is the ability to add text to any picture, and utilize photo filters in conjuction for superb outcomes.
Full of features, it’s surprising that Phonto is FREE. It is easy to use, includes more than 200 fonts (whaat?), the ability to add MORE fonts, size them, dice them and throw them about however you’d like. Go text crazy – why not?
Plus, all these textual formations can be produced on solid or pattern backgrounds making it an excellent resource for quote-ables or other branding measures on-the-go.
Mextures is the newest kid on the block (yes, I said that). But this app can take your pictures from meh, to breathtaking instantly.
I will admit, this app takes more patience, but it’s worth the time to orient yourself because of its original edge.
Mextures is all about textures, blending colors, and layers. It offers 130 different textures, 12 blending modes, and an array of other real photo editing options that can be applied in unlimited ways.
Plus, these features build in layers, so there’s no harm in creating until you’re overcome with visionary finesse. If there’s a mistake, the layer can be edited without destroying the overall image.
And if you fall in love with your textural mixture, it can be saved as a “formula” for later use.
In addition, Mextures offers the social network aspect, and will be sure to beckon serious photographers.
