We've tried to make it really simple to import your own images, overlays or logos and apply them over your photos. Here's a few little tips:
- Use JPG or PNG images (photos, logos, artwork)
- Pick from the camera roll or from Dropbox
- With color images, the color selector is disabled
- Change the color with pure black or white images
- Double tap to save to your personal set in the app
- Saved image overlays can be applied at any time
- Save unlimited overlays to your own set
Any questions about using your own overlays, just reach out to us from within the app.
NEW FONTS ADDED: Avenir, Cochin, Comfortaa, Cookie, Courier Prime, Megrim, Noteworthy, Rye, Royal Invites, Varela.
RECOGNITION: Thanks to font designer Heather Joyce for providing the Royal Invites, The Frog and Sketchy Serif fonts.
I really like it
I love that I can import my own image as an overlay! That is awesome! There are a few things that I would love to see added to this app that would make it a solid 5 stars. First the color selection I feel is fairly limited. I would love to see the bar of color swatches changed to a bar of unlimited color choice. An added color brightness adjustment would add to the color customization. Also, it would be nice to have the option to expand a text box or shape one way without the other way expanding, too. Those two additions (mostly the colors) would really make it really amazing.
a breeze to use
I’m so excited about this update! The option to add in .PNG files is perfectly implemented it’s very easy to pick up and use right away. Llinking directly from Dropbox means I can add images from my computer and they will appear in an instant. The new fonts are fun too! They save me a bit of time from hunting on my computer, but again, I can search on Dropbox for any I’ve already grabbed. This app is a definite staple in my memory keeping on the go.
I bought this because of the cool fonts shown in the demo pics, but it's kinda dirty pool to not include the one font that's shown (Showcase Script). I thought I was getting 80+ fonts for the original price but actually I was getting 50+ with the option to pay more for the remaining 30, including the cool one that's shown in the "sales pitch." But my biggest suggestion for improvement is to add a text shadow option. That would really help a lot to make the text stand out on pictures. Thanks.
