Time to Get Creative

It's time to get creative with all your favorite photos and that is made possible with the Photostein app. Here you can combine all kinds of photos into one template. The app comes with 135 different frame layouts and there are 48 different background patterns to apply. What this means to users is that you have a chance to really let your personality shine and let the photos convey the message you want. The app is user-friendly and you have the ability to use it in landscape mode. Of course half the fun is sharing your creations, which can be done over Tumblr, Flickr, email, Twitter, Facebook (you need iOS 6.0 or later to share on Facebook), and Instagram.

The built-in photo editor gives you tools such as the white balance, blur, filters, adjustable contrast and brightness, and more. This is your chance to create some rather professional looking results with very little effort on your part.
