Photo Effects Pro app review: create cute collages



Photo Effects Pro is an app for the iPhone and iPad that allows you to turn your collection of photos into fun collages on a simple and straightforward user interface.

The best apps for combining photos on your iPad 2020

This app is available for free from the Photo and Video section of the App Store, and its functionality makes it really easy to swiftly tap away to add cute, quirky, and even silly twists to your images before sharing them with your friends and family.

Let’s take a closer look at the features of this app.

Lightweight and Loaded!

Photo Effects Pro only takes up 10.8 MB of space on your iOS device, leaving plenty of room for the new and improved versions of the photos you already have on your camera roll. Since it’s so lightweight, it also makes for a highly responsive app which definitely adds to the user experience.

When you first open up the app, you can choose from a variety of templates, all of which are available for free. I love that there are no in-app purchases in this app that force the user to pay up in order to unlock a majority of the features, unlike most other photo and video apps of the same nature.

Create and Share

Once you’ve chosen the template, you can manually select each photograph by tapping on the area in which you’d like put in a photo. Move, swap, rotate, zoom, and sketch on images throughout the editing process until you’re happy with the work.

Furthermore, you can also add text, emoticons, clip art, and stickers to further brighten up your photos. Images can be arranged so as to form a rectangular, wide rectangular, and even square “aspect ratio”. The latter is particularly useful for those of us who love to use Instagram.

Speaking of Instagram, social media integration is also provided with this app, so users can swiftly share their works using Twitter, Facebook, Picasa, Blogger, Tumblr, Google Plus, Email, and of course, Instagram.
