Do Amazing Things With Your Photos

We grands love to take pics of our precious g-kids and even selfies. Thanks to our friends at Visual Steps, we can now do amazing things with those photos.

Photo editing on the iPad

There is so much you can do with an iPad, but some of the most popular applications are surely those that work with photos. Using the iPad’s standard app Photos you can easily create photos. For example photos from your vacation, the grandchildren, or a lovely landscape nearby.

Photo editing apps

In the App Store there are many apps available that come with a variety of tools for enhancing your photos. A number of these apps are easy to use and free to download. Photo editing apps generally offer lots of preset filters, plus useful tools to crop, repair, lighten, darken or sharpen your photos. And if you want additional editing capability, you can purchase an app for a small amount with even more great features. Often you can enhance your photos automatically or use manual controls.

Collage, slideshow and pho to album

Once you have edited your photos you can create a collage, slideshow or photo album. In a collage, you can combine a number of photos to give a quick impression of a vacation or an event, such as a wedding or a family reunion. There are various apps that will help you create a collage. You can also add text, stickers and special effects to the collage.

photosIf you have taken some beautiful or interesting pictures, you will most likely want to share them. There are several options for doing this. For example, you can print your photos, individually or in an album. You can also create a slideshow of your pictures with the Photo Grid app. You can save the slideshow as a video clip so that it can be viewed on your iPad, or share it through social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
