From beach vacations to music festivals, countless memories were captured this summer. With more than 500 million photos posted to social media platforms each day, photographers need to get creative to make their pictures noticeable.
To start, photographers can take more professional photos with the Samsung Galaxy S4. The device introduces Dual Shot functionality, which makes it possible for the rear- and front-facing cameras to work simultaneously. With the split-screen feature, the shot-taker can be included in pictures. High-quality photos are taken to the next level with the Nokia Lumia 928. This phone comes complete with a Xenon flash, which provides additional brightness for sharp images even in the lowest light. Budding photographers can immediately post their creations on social media over a fast 4G LTE network.
For amateur designers interested in adding decorative text to their photos to make them stand out, Overgram can help them embed a caption, quote or meme directly onto an image. They can also change the text size, font and color before uploading their creation to Instagram or just saving it to the phone’s camera roll.
Personal photos also make for authentic decorative items or greeting cards. Phoster uses customized templates to turn photos into stylish posters and invitations that can be shared with friends via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and email.
Old-school postcards got an upgrade with Postagram. This service allows users to take any photo they’ve captured on Instagram and send it in postcard form for only 99 cents. Cards include an optional personalized message and are created so the photo can pop-out of the postcard as a 3x3 inch standalone photo.
