On my iPhone…Over text overlay app

Over icon

Over for iOS

An app that does one thing really well -- allow you to overlay text -- in a variety of fonts -- over your iPhone photos. I didn't have much use for this until I started doing a blog series entitled Garden Alphabet. In this series -- and hopefully an upcoming poster -- I highlight a plant or flower and overlay the name on the photo in an artistic fashion. I started with the free version of Over, entitled Overgram. This free app adds an Overgram watermark to each image and limits the number of fonts you can use, so once the series became a regular feature, I upgraded to the paid version. Here are 3 samples...

You can crop your photos into the square format desired by Instagram or you can use the full frame photo. Annotated pictures can be saved to your camera roll (and then to your computer) sent via email of forwarded off to Instagram and other services for  further use.

Over is a an app for very specific uses, but if you have those needs, it is an excellent choice.

From the iTunes App Store...

Add beautiful text to your photos and share them on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr & Instagram. Create inspirational, informational or even funny images to share quickly and easily. In only a few seconds you can add captions, quotes, jokes, memes, poems or anything else you can think of to a photo.

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.

How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware

A digital photo frame is a small screen that can sit on your desk in your office or in your kitchen displaying your favorite pictures, changing at regular intervals. The first commercial digital photo frame was introduced in the 1990s shortly after the digital camera. Digital photo frames made a comeback in popularity during 2020, perhaps because people were staying at home more. In this tutorial, we’ll turn our Raspberry Pi into a digital photo frame using MagicMirror and the GooglePhotos module. Please note, we will skip installation of the 2-way mirror in the original Magic Mirror project. Consider this project, “Magic Mirror, without the mirror.” Read How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware An interesting link found among my daily reading
