Creating collages on the iPhone for Instagram using InstaCollage Pro

I have commented here a few framing and collage apps, generally referring to them as creators of  multi photo ‘images’. A new addition to the group (new to me) is InstaCollage. The iPhone app has the features of the many collage apps in the iTunes store, but tuned a bit more towards folks posting to Instagram. Pick a border/frame/template layout that matches the group of photos that you see being together to deliver the message.

It would be too easy to create a post that seemed endless if I try to cover all of the features. You choose a image layout, place images, resize, shake to remove all of them, add a frame, adjust backgrounds, adjust the round corners around the images, frame texture/thickness… Add stamps, text (more than 50 fonts), change style and adjust images with a variety of filters. While InstaCollage appears to be made for posting directly to Instagram, you can also post to Facebook, Twitter, attach to an email, or save to your iPhone’s photo library. For the more creative, there are collage options now where the images are shapes beyond simple squares too!

Hipster on the iPhone – New free holiday templates

There are many options in the land of sharing photos taken with your iPhone. Some have cool ways of finding friends to share with, others have unique user experiences for showing of your pics with. In the case of Hipster, the fun is how the image wrapped. Instead of square images like Instagram, Hipster has the images wide in order to fit on their electronic postcards. I say post cards not because they print and mail, rather because the user experiences is flipping the framed image over and writing on the back.

Other photographers on Hipster can see where you took the picture, like, and add text. There are many templates to frame your image with which include different locations for the location text. For the holidays, Hipster has added a few fun frame templates for your ‘postcard’ images.
