As I let myself get behind on Project Life (I'll probably just have a big catch-up weekend again), I thought I'd show you how I plan my pages. I'm doing quite a lot more on my iPad since Jonny started school again and so I've had to re-think how I plan things. So today I've got my five apps I use on my iPad for Project Life (which are also for iPhones).
1. PicTapGo $1.99
This is the app I use for all my photo editing. It has all kinds of filters to make pictures look amazing and you can save your own recipes. I have one for all of the baby monthly photos so they all look the same (well, except for the growing baby of course). But it's great for simple tasks like lighting up a photo, warming it up or cooling it down, different kinds of black & white... It's the best. I use it for not only editing my photos for Project Life but my for my blog as well.
2. PicFrame $0.99
I use this app two ways. In fact I used it to make that photo. The first is to plan out my pages. They already have Design A as one of their layouts and since this is my most common design to pick, it's super simple to just pick the photos I want for the layout and save it to my photos to use later when I'm putting the layout together. The other way I use it is to put two 3x4" photos onto one 4x6" picture to send off to the be printed. For other layouts, it requires a little thinking and math to create a layout but it's not too hard.
3. Over $1.99
I really like the fonts and editing you can do on Over when you want to add some digital journaling to photos. I usually do this after I've edited the photos and before I resize them on PicFrame (if I need to). They also have another app I use called Obaby for fun little graphics to add to baby's photos.
4. Rhonna Designs $1.99
Speaking of graphics... This is a neat app from a crafter! She's got all kinds of cute graphics for all kinds of occasions with options to purchase more. Plus, she's got neat borders and frames that always add more fun to photos. Check it out!
5. Kicksend FREE
This app is the BEST. If you're lucky and have a nice printer at home that's wireless, you can just go ahead and print from your iPad or iPhone. But, if you rely on hour photos like Target, it's a hassle to get on the computer, upload your photos and send them to print. Kicksend does all that for you! You select the photos you want to print and they send them off. Right from your mobile device. So awesome. They also have a printing service if getting them delivered is more you.
I hope these apps are helpful to you. I'd love to know of there any out there that are useful for Project Life. I can't wait to see what the Project Life app is going to be like. I may end up being able to consolidate some of these apps into just one. How nice would that be?!
