Make Photos Fun With These Great Editing Apps

In my last blog, I shared with you how to use the social media photo sharing sites Instagram and Pinterest. But those are far from the only apps that let you do creative things with the countless photos you’ve accumulated in your smartphone’s camera roll. Here are a few others that I’ve been having lots of fun with lately. Each of these fun photography apps are available for iPhone or Android phones, and they’re all free to download. Plus, they’re a great way to connect with the younger crowd in your family—you’ll get some real “cool” points by adding neat touches to your photos and sharing them on social media!

It seems like everybody in the digital world is using “emojis” these days as quick and easy shorthand for expressing a mood or a thought. With Bitmoji, you get to create your own personalized emoji’s, featuring your own face! You start by creating an “avatar,” or caricature, from a photo you upload to the app, then take it from there. Insert your new cartoon twin into all sorts of “emoji’s”—laughing, crying, performing heroic deeds, you name it! Then, sprinkle your texts and online chat with these unique creations to really impress, or at least really amuse, your friends!

Pixlr provides unique photo editing tools that let you turn your pictures into fascinating works of art. It offers over two million combinations of effects, overlays, and filters. With these, you can add or alter the color and focus of a chosen photo, create photo collages with a variety of backgrounds and layouts, adjust the mood of your shot, add graphics and text, and so much more.

If you love to create collages, stickers, or scrapbooks, you’ll enjoy using Pic Collage. There are hundreds of layouts and templates to choose from to dress up your photos! Clip pictures just by tracing your finger on the screen and use bits and pieces to make custom montages. You can even doodle right on it to really give it that DIY, home-made look.

And with each of these photography apps, you can also share your work with your connections on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any of your other favorite social media sites. I think you’ll really enjoy the chance they provide to get in touch with your artistic side, entertain your family and friends, and just have some fun with your photos!

    I have a Samsung J3 currently with AT&T. Can I transfer the phone over to Consumer Cellular. I also have a Consumer Cellular phone and would like to know if I can have the number changed.

      Thanks for posting, Judith. In general, unlocked GSM phones, such as those used previously with AT&T, are a good fit with our SIM card. You’ll want to ensure that phone is fully unlocked by the original carrier, and then you can pick up one of our SIM cards at your local Target, or we can get one on the way to you. As for your current Consumer Cellular phone, we’re happy to work with you to obtain a new phone number. Please give us a call at 888-345-5509, and we’ll be happy to assist you. We appreciate you posting, and we look forward to speaking with you soon!

    I like to thank the gentleman that fixed my phone on March 19. After three months without service and, 25 custumer service technicians who could do nothing for me, he finally got my phone back on correct form. Thanks very much sir.

      We appreciate you taking the time to post, Pam. Our service uses two different nation-wide networks, so if AT&T isn’t working well in your area, we can see if our other network option would be a good fit. We can take a look at the coverage in your area if you give us a call at 888-345-5509. Thank you for taking the time to post, and we hope to speak with you soon!

    How do I get rid of all the ads that pop up on my phone when I try to make a call or answer a call. It is very frustrating. I’m ready to give up on Consumer Cellular because of it.

    reply to Joanne

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thanks for reaching out to us, Joanne. Your phone isn’t designed to feature advertisements, so those may be notifications that are popping up on your screen. We can help you manage them or even disable some of them if you like. Please give us a call at 888-345-5509 at your convenience, and we will be ready to assist you. Thank you again for posting, and we look forward to speaking with you!
