Editing iPhone Photos

Aug 29, 2012

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.

Have fun!
