Editing iPhone Photos
I get email all the time asking me how I edit the photos I take using my iPhone. So today I thought I would put together a tutorial (WARNING this is a LONG tutorial) and show you how I do it. I love editing my images and use Typoinsta, Instagram and Pic Stitch the most. There are lots of other free editing programs available but I seem to go back to these three the most.
Here is an unedited photo of some beautiful sunflowers I took on a not so sunny day while in West Virginia. The lighting was terrible but I wanted the photo no matter what and knew I could have fun doing some editing using my favorite apps.
The first app I use is Pic Stitch. This app allows you to crop one or up to 4 photos using their free version. You can purchase more layouts if you want.
I wanted to use just one photo so I tapped the single square. Once you see the layout you want to double tap on the layout. It will then take you to a different page that shows your Camera Roll. Tap on Camera Roll
You will now be taken to all the photos on your camera. Pick the photo you want to edit. Tap done and you will then see the image below. You can now crop the image as you want with two fingers touching the screen all you need to do is open and close your two fingers. Once you have the imaged cropped as you like tap on Export.
After you tap on Export you will then see the screen below. I always save my image to my Photo Album. Tap on Photo Album and now you are ready to start editing the cropped image in Typoinsta.
Open the Typoinsta app and tap on the word Load another screen will come up, tap on Use Photo from Library. Tap on the cropped image you just saved from the Pic Stitch app.
The photo will be uploaded to the app and you are now ready to add text to your photo. Tap on Input. Now you can pick the font style, size and color. While the words are inside the box on the photo after you have typed your text and clicked done you can move the text all around the photo to place them as you like.
After you finish adding your text tap Done. Now tap Save. You will see Save, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. Tap on Instagram so that you can now add edit to your image.
Now that you are in Instagram you can edit the photo as you like. Once you have the photo as you like it tap on the green check mark. You will then be taken to another screen that will allow you to add a caption with the photo as well as post it to Facebook, Twitter etc. It will automatically post to Instagram.
It seems like a lot of work getting your photo from beginning to end but after you’ve done this a few times the process goes pretty fast.
