Tech Tip: my 2 current favorite photo apps

Hello friends!

Today, I’ve got a tech tip for you; I am sharing my 2 favorite photo apps of the moment.

The first app is PicTapGo.  I have loved this app for a long time!  The second app is Baby Story, and I have loved using this app to document my #babybump, and I know I will love it when baby gets here!

Usually, I will pull up the Baby Story app first, to add the baby bump week in fruits text to my photo.  (I did have to purchase the week in fruits text, but there are a lot of free ones…there are some for everyday, birthdays, kids, and babies.)  Once you choose the text you want (you’ll find them in the star, circled in pink), you can move it anywhere on your photo, and change the size & color.

Without doing any other editing, I save the photo with the text, and open it up in PicTapGo.  I am just more comfortable with editing in this app.

I love the PicTapGo app because there are a lot of filters to choose from.  (The first pic in the photo above shows my favorite filters.)  I usually lighten my photo with the lights on or bright side filter.  Then, I can move on to colored filters.  I always like to sharpen my photo a little with the Crispity filter also.  One thing I love about this app is that you can adjust the level/amount of the filter (circled in pink).  Once done editing, you can save to your camera roll, or go directly to social media.

I created a mini tag album to document my bump pics using the September Shine Bright kit and Be You add-on.  As I progress more into my pregnancy, I can add more to this mini album!

To create this mini album, I die cut tags from pattern paper.  (Two of the papers are from the Dear Lizzy Happy Place 6×6 paper pad from the April add-on)  I glued them back to back.  Then I added my photos, which I cut to look like mini polaroids.  I finished by embellishing with stickers, stamping, and a little bit of journaling.  I just love this little album!

What are your go-to photo apps?  Do you use PicTapGo or BabyStory?

Have an awesome day!
