PicTapGo Photo Editing for Digital Artistry

These days it seems like I do far more photo editing on my phone than I do on my computer.

I now take more photos with my iPhone than I do with my expensive camera, so it no longer makes sense to edit my photos on my computer.

PicTapGo is an iPhone editing app you can use to to make quick and easy improvements to your photos.

Editing your photos on your phone enables you to share them immediately on social networks or save them for use in your artsy digital scrapbooking pages.

And you do not have to be a photography expert to get great results.

Most of my photos are captured while hiking, or spending time with the grandchildren, which means they can be blurry or very grainy.

PicTapGo is a sweet little inexpensive App that will cost you just $2.00.

It enables you:

  • To select and edit a photo using one of the more than 50 filters available.
  • Crop and save your precious moments.
  • Then post them to your social media channels directly from your phone.

How It Works

Step 1. Select a Photo.

I took this photo while out for a walk with my son’s dog, Storm.

Step 2. Select Options.

The tones in my image are cool due to shadows cast by the trees so I applied the Warmth option under the Adjustments menu.

Move your finger left/right on the slider to decrease/increase the amount of each Adjustment or Filter you wish to apply.

Step. 3 Layer The Effects.

  • Combine multiple Filters to reach a desired result.
  • Adjust the intensity of each filter before you apply it to your image.
  • Save your formulas as presets for use on future photos.

See the black and white Filter options listed below.

Step 5. Save Your Edited Photo.

PicTapGo  Photo Editing gets your photos artistry ready for use in your digital art layouts.

Import to your computer for use in Adobe Photoshop and Elements, where they can be blended with your DigitalART supplies.

Here are a few more examples using the Filters and Cropping Tools for PicTapGo.

    I love PicTapGo and use it all the time. It takes a couple of tries to get the hang of it but then you can create some great looks. It’s also a good idea to save your “recipes” for future use. I especially like the E-Z Burn feature to add a little vignette to the corners.
