Photo Apps – my latest favourites

It’s been a while since I’ve done an App post, so I thought I’d share with you some new favourites of mine.

Starting with the latest photo app I’ve been loving, Repix – Remix & Paint Photos.  I’ve wondered how people were pulling off those awesome light trail photos (especially when I knew they lacked the photographic skills necessary), then I found this app.  You can do beautiful things with this app and the result is high res.  I recommend going for the in app upgrade to get the sparkler, stars and light trails option as these are the tools you’ll want to use most.  The app is idiot proof, with simple controls that deliver a big result.  You can check out the instagram feed of Repix’d pictures here.

KEY FEATURES:

- Unique, handcrafted brushes to remix your photos 

- Edit any part of your photos by simply painting with your finger
– Free to use with new brushes available to purchase
– Pinch screen to zoom in and pay close attention to certain parts of your photo

– Studio-grade technology and intuitive interface to inspire new levels of creativity

– Choose from images in your camera roll or import from Facebook 
– Made a mistake? Erase, undo or start again to perfect your photos

- Cropping and adjustments tools to add the final touches to your creation

– Share your Repix creations with friends on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram using #repix

Download it here from Australia Post   The Postcard App from Australia Post needs to be shared, why doesn’t anyone know about this app?!  It allows you to create a postcard from photos on your iPhone, you grab the address from your contact list, write your message and done.  Australia Post will print and send your postcard anywhere in Australia for $1.99 (that’s more than the cost of buying a postcard really)  and only $2.99 to send overseas.  You can even use this app while overseas to send cards to home,

What you get.

  but this time they will arrive before you do because you can get them sent from here (just be careful with your off shore data charges they can be heinous!)  I’ve put this app to great use on a recent trip to China.   The print quality is photo quality.  I’ve even been using to create birthday postcards for friends, very personalised 🙂

Find it here. If you’ve ever tried to get a good shot of the kids like me, you’ll find you have to take about a dozen to get one shot where they are at least looking in your direction. And you often wish you could pick a head from one photo and put it in another to create a shot where they’re all smiling.  With that in mind parents will love this app.  Another simple touch interface, no technical photoshop knowledge required.

“GroupShot solves a common problem found in group photos, namely one person who isn’t facing the camera or whose expression doesn’t fit the rest of the groupWith GroupShot, users can pick and choose parts of each photo, then combine all the parts to create the perfect shot that looks exactly the same.The usage is incredibly simple. All you need to do is to load your images, mark the parts you wish to replace, and choose the best option from the rest of the set.”
