Turn Your Summer Photos Into Art

Looking for some creative photo apps for you or your kids? Here’s a few that can provide some fun and funny effects on your smartphone photos.

For IOS:

InstaBlend – take two photos and blend them into a double exposure. Easy to use but the ads and popups are annoying, unless you upgrade.

Scrap It HD – a kid friendly digital scrapbooking app with loads of design elements, effects and features.

For Android:

PicsArt Photo Studio – create art from you photos and share with your network. This app has tools for making grids, collages, drawings and artistic effects, as well as photo editing tools. A good all in one app.

Fotodanz – turn your photos into cinemagraphs by adding animation. This tool allows you to create fun little 3-5 second movies by animating some or all of you photo. You can add filters too.

Picture Decorator – use stamps, stickers, frames and effects to jazz up your photos. Write notes on the picture and doodle with your fingers and share.

For Either and/or PC

InstaCollage Pro – Create collages with choices of creative frames and layouts beyond the standard grid. It’s easy to use and it’s really fun to play with the filters and effects. Free for a limited time!

Pho.to – put your kid on a wanted poster (I did), a movie screen or lots more. Pick an effect, pick a photo and process. It’s lots of fun and the easy to use templates make it a cinch to use.

Summer’s here and chances are you’ll be taking lots of pics of your fun summer activities. These apps help you embellish, organize and share the good times creatively. Let your artistic side shine!
