I have a lot of fun taking pictures with my iPhone, and I love sharing them on Instagram. I have a Moleskine notebook that I wanted to use as a small scrapbook for my trip, so I ordered some prints of my Instagram photos from printstagr.am. They just arrived yesterday, and they're so cute.
Did you see what I did there? I Instagrammed my Instagram prints. hee hee! They are small, about the size of a business card, and the paper is very thick and stiff, with a nice matte finish. When I placed my order, they said it would take 4-6 weeks, but I think I got them in about three, so that's not too bad. I know they are trying to get them out faster and it looks like they are doing some upgrading as we speak.
The mini prints were $12 for 48 (plus $6 shipping), so they're not a bad deal. They also have posters and tiny books and stickers. I'm quite happy with the quality, and will definitely order from them again!
P.S. Sock darning report tomorrow. I've been gone all day! One sock is darned, two more to go.
I had no intention of doing another app review so soon, but I discovered Percolator last night and I love it so much I had to share it Right Now.
Percolator is a fun photo app that turns your pictures into mosaic works of art.
You can really fine-tune the effects, and decide just how much of your original image you want to retain. I'm still figuring out what all the different settings do. I love this photo I took of my mother's friend on our last day in Africa, I'm not sure exactly what I did in Percolator, but it's just magical:
A bowl of yarn becomes a riot of color:
I love the creativity of this app, it makes me feel so artistic, even though its ridiculously easy. Of course there is a flickr group, with lots of interesting work being done in combination with other apps too.
The website shows the price is $2.99, but it's only $1.99 right now in the app store. I'm not sure how long that will last, so I'd get it quick! There's also an iPad version, which I can only imagine is downright amazing.
And now I am starting to look at and edit all my photos! I hope you don't get tired of hearing about South Africa, but there will be a few posts in the coming weeks. It's a beautiful country, with beautiful light and beautiful people, more so than I ever expected. Now that I am looking at all the pictures I took, I so wish I was a better photographer, to do it all justice.
