This is the first of several blogs. What I’m going to teach you is how to master using combination applications on your iPhone. There are many of use out there who have 25+ photo apps on your iPhone. Some of you out there are wondering is it justified to have that many app on my phone? The answer is YES !!! I’ll tell you why…no photo app is the “perfect app”, in fact some do things that other don’t do. Especially the actually camera apps themselves. I have 60+ cameras apps alone. This is not counting the editing apps to go with the camera apps.
Now I know a lot of you either look at iPhonephongraphy or Life in Lo-Fi. I read both of them which are great sources for the new and latest camera & editing apps. But the thing they lack is once you have them what do you really do with them, that’s where I come in to help. What I do is try and figure out the true apps potential. Then I apply them to the pictures I take with my iPhone. My thing is why just stop with one or two apps when you can combine each of the apps potential, apply them to your photos to make one awesome photo
or image. I’m hoping to start a brand new revolution with Combo Apps.
I’m going to show you how to make simple business cards on you phone with the apps. I actually did it on my phone and it took me 30 minutes to make 5 card design. All you need are two apps, Photo Mess & any crop/rotate app. I have Filterstorm so I use that for rotating and cropping. Photo Mess is a great app, you can get at the App Store or order it on your
phone. Photo Mess is free, real easy to use and it work with your iPad too. The have extras you can purchase, but that’s up to you if you want the extras. When you pull up your Photo Mess Screen it will look like this.
You will notice a “Return to original size”. Tap on that and it will return to the original size and you can resize it, turn it & move it around. All with the touch your finger or fingers. After you have picked all you images. You’ll have a college that looks like this.
That is the paw icon, which are the extras you can buy with Photo Mess. Then after you save you need to rotate the image. The reason why I do it this way is I like to work vertical on my iPhone when editing, texting, messaging and playing games. I tried tilting the phone and it’s hard for me to work horizontal. Plus it doesn’t alone it right when you tilt the phone the other way. This is the finished product of my business card.
