Fun Photos Friday: PicFrame App Review & Giveaway

A few weeks ago I came across this cool new app on iTunes:


As described in the iTunes App Store:

PicFrame helps you combine multiple photos into amazing looking frames and share them with your friends and family via Facebook, Email, Instagram, Twitter, Flickr and Tumblr. With 60 fully adjustable frames, rounded corners, photo effects, shadows, plenty of patterns and an easy color picker you will always have a unique look.

I don’t have any fancy photography programs, and have been frustrated by my inability to do side-by-side pictures on blog, so I thought I’d give it a try. Now that I’ve played with it a bit, I thought I’d write up a PicFrame App review.

It is very easy to use and has lots of features. As highlighted in the iTunes App Store:

I used it to make these collages from pictures on my iPhone:

I picked a frame color to complement the cherry blossoms.

I played with different special effects.

I tried out different frame styles and the 99-cent “label” add-on.

I used it for this picture of my GW Parkway Classic race number and t-shirt.

And this picture of the three things I bought in preparation for race day.

There are tons of options for frame styles and sizes

(one of many pages of options)

and options for frame thickness, frame color, picture effects, etc.

Once you finish your project, you can share it on Facebook or Twitter, send it by email, or just save it to your iPhone. Since I have the WordPress app, I can upload the saved projects from my iPhone photo library right into my blog. It’s really quite a fun tool for its 99 cent price tag!

    I've been wondering about this app since side-by-side photos take magical HTML work through WordPress, or are too time consuming in Photoshop, so consider me entered. As far as favorite apps go, I'm still searching them out. I default to instagram for mainly sharing purposes — I have tested a variety of other apps to edit, but nothing stands out as the best.
