Guest Posting at Digital Scrapbooking HQ

selphy & collectWith so much going on over at Take Heart Ideas I completely forgot to share with you that I guest posted over at Digital Scrapbooking HQ yesterday. It was an honor for me to be able to guest post for Melissa who is currently on maternity leave. Melissa has wonderful classes available on her site for how to scrap digitally with Photoshop Elements. I have taken some of her classes and they are simply amazing! To learn more about Melissa and her classes pop on over to Digital Scrapbooking HQ.

I shared with Melissa and her readers how I use the Collect app and Pic Stitch app to get my photos printed from my iPhone and into my album in 20 minutes or less. It was a ton of fun creating this post especially since it is a question that I often see asked. I also created a tutorial video for you about the Pic Stitch app and how you can print your photos from your iPhone using a Canon Selphy printer.

You can watch the video here and don’t forget to pop on over to Melissa’s site and check out my tutorial about the Collect app.

Do you get your iPhone photos into your albums on a consistent basis? Let us know in the comments.


App Review – Big Lens

I have a new favorite app. I know that you have probably heard of Big Lens before just like I have but I am always hesitant to spend money on apps even when they are$.99 cents. We all know that $.99 cents can add up if you don’t pay attention to what you are spending!

Any who Big Lens is a great app that allows you to edit photos on your iPhone that make the photos look like you have taken them with your DSLR camera. How does Big Lens do this? The app gives you the ability to create a focus on your photo and blur everything else out. You can even adjust what the aperature should be like along with adding a filter to your photo and adjusting the lens that you would have used to take the photo!

You can also adjust the amount of focus and blur that you would like on your photo. You can change your photo to be a photo that you would have taken in HDR mode as well. After you have played around with your photo and made tons of tweeks and changes you can compare what the orignial photo and your new photo look like.

The only places that you can add your photo directly from the app are Mail, Twitter, Facebook, Dropbox, Picassa and of course you can save your photo to your phone and then upload it wherever you want.

I can’t speak enough about how much fun this app is to play with and all the wonderful different effects that you can create with your photos. The app has just seemed to open up a whole new world for me. Now that I sound like the biggest nerd ever, I am going to stop writing and share some of my photos with you that I have created with the Big Lens app.

App Tuesday – Rhonna Designs

Happy Tuesday

Created with the Rhonna Designs app by using one of the Rhonna Backgrounds

I know that I am late to the party and that the Rhonna Designs app has been around for a while. If you are scrapper and have an iPhone I am sure that you already have this app. If you don’t have the app yet then this review is for you!

I recently purchased the app for FREE, yes you heard me right! The app was the featured app of the week last week and I love getting my apps for FREE. I know a $1.99 is not a big deal but when you have tons of apps those apps that cost you money can add up. Plus I was down for the count and just never jumped on the bandwagon earlier because I was dealing with my OH SO TIRED issue that I mentioned in my previous post.

Back to the app when you first open the app you have this pretty screen that gives you the option to choose from your camera roll or to take a picture. I am generally one of those people that always chooses from my camera roll, I hardly ever take a picture with an app because I feel that I have more control over the picture that I want by using my camera.

Once you choose the camera roll option you can choose from the Rhonna Backgrounds, your camera roll, your photo stream or from one of your other albums that you have on your phone!

There are so many options with the Rhonna Designs app that it is impossible for me to write about all of them. You can add text to any photo, you can add a frame to any photo, you can add quotes and borders to any of your photos as well. The app gives you so many different choices to add graphics to your photo that it is simply amazing! You can change the color of your font and graphics that you add to your photos as well as the size.

The app gives you free range so that you can create a masterpiece!

This app is also a great app for all you project lifers out there because it really gives you the ability to add amazing elements to your photos before you print them out and assist with the journaling part by having the journaling printed on the photo!

All in all this is a great app to have and one that I recommend as being well worth the money!
