On My iPhone/Android: Layout from Instagram

 
 
 
I am not a big user of photo collages on my site, but I have some very specific use cases that gives Layout from Instagram a place on my iPhone and iPad. I often post collections of products I create with my photography and Layout allows me to easily assemble and post collages of product samples. Occasionally I will use it for more casual creations, too. It does what is does, quickly, capably and reliably, which is about the best that can be said of any app on your devices.

 Create fun, one-of-a-kind layouts by remixing your own photos and sharing them with your friends.

Choose photos from your camera roll—or use the built-in Photo Booth to take spur-of-the-moment shots—and instantly see them laid out in various combinations. Pick the layout you like best, then edit it to make it your own.

Layout's smooth, intuitive process gives you complete creative control. Tap to mirror, flip or replace images, hold and drag to swap them, pinch to zoom in or out, or pull the handles to resize. You're the editor, so get creative—tell a story, show off an outfit or just splice, dice and change the look of your regular photos to convey a mood or theme.

FEATURES

* Re-mix up to 9 of your photos at a time to create fun, personalized layouts.

* Use the Faces tab to quickly find photos with people in them.

* Capture the moment in Photo Booth mode with quick, spontaneous shots.

* Save your layouts to your camera roll and share them seamlessly to Instagram or other networks.

* Easily see the last 30 photos you've selected in the Recents tab.

* Pair your layouts with Instagram's filters and creative tools afterwards to make them stand out even more.

* Download and start creating immediately. No signup or account required—and no clutter breaking up your flow.
