Combo Apps/Photo Candy Overview

Photo Candy Demo 2

Today I’m doing a quick review with an app called Photo Candy. It’s free at the App Store with in-app purchases and iPhone only app. The app grabbed my attention in iPhone Art Studio Talk. I saw the developer posted a link and something about the app. I left them a message and decided to do a quick overview with Photo Candy.The top photo was taken with Pro Camera square format and edited with Photo Candy.

Let’s talk about this app a little bit before I show you the demo. Photocandy provides infinite opportunities to transform your photos into amazing works of art that can be shared and enjoyed with all your friends and family. Experience a brand new way to edit your photos. PhotoCandy allows you to easily crop, add filters, change colors, add pattern overlays, and mask out shapes to create unique one of the kind photos! With over 30 patterns & shapes built in the possibilities are endless. Push your creativity to the next level with Photo Candy! So in other words the app is like Tangent but not really. This app does save at low res 1280 x 1280. I feel that 2MP is considered low res these days because of iPhone 4S and 5 eight megapixels camera.

Photo Candy is a square format (1:1 ratio) only app. You can adjust your 4:3 photos into square photos, since the app saves at low res the square format doesn’t bother me so much. It’s a quick editing and ready to upload and show off on Instagram.

Instructions and diagrams on how to operate the app…

When you see the shapes grayed out it means you have to purchase to open up the rest of the patterns.

After you find the shape you like and color, you can change the color of the shape with in the photo. I found Invert and Zombie. You can also add more layers of shape patters if you want for more crazy styles and looks.

You save and share options…but lets tap on the Remove Ads button.

Another in-app purchase, now the ads don’t bother me because they show up after you save the video. You can tap on the X button to get rid of the app and go onto the next project.
