An App Review.

To start off, these are just my opinions. I just happen to use a lot of apps and programs in my "line of work" and wanted to share a little. And I think that a photography blog should be more than just a "showcase" of work. There is real life behind each photograph, and a real photographer (with a real life) behind that camera.

I recently became an iPhone owner. It's not surprising, seeing as I've had two different iPods, a macbook, and iMac, and an iPad. I'm an Apple fanatic, sort of by accident, but let's face last name is McIntosh (just ignore the spelling ;) )

I love when a phone has a decent camera. Sometimes I'm out and about, and I don't have my "fancy" camera, or my point and shoot has a dead battery (happens to me all the time). And nowadays, you can shoot, edit and post photos right from your phone. Here are a couple of the apps I use when this is my photography method of choice.


It's super popular. And super simple to use. and makes it even simpler to stalk some of your friends (just kidding). But I do have a few friends that update a lot... so it's nice to keep up.

If you follow me, most of the photos in this post are going to be familiar, but in case you are new here, I'll post a few examples

PhotoEditor- A free little editing app, that I use occasionally with Instagram, and with:

Pic Stitch- A photo collage maker that works well with Instagram, Facebook, and much more.

Actual photo(s) from Peas and Crayons

So that's my mini app review.What apps do you use when using your phone as your photographic choice?

Sometimes there are just not enough hours in a day!

My last post promised more vacation photos (and a few more Maclin photos) over on the Life page, but I never got around to posting them. Sorry for the delay, but everything is up now! And check back this after this weekend for a post full of photos and fun from (hopefully) sunny Orlando! Ikea here we come!
