Diptic is a fantastic app brought to you from the people over at Peak Systems. It allows you to elegantly tell a story with your photos by combining multiple images to create a collage, similar to our own photo collage canvas prints. We love this app because it’s useful, has a well-designed interface, and is above all easy to use. Here are a few of the features you can expect from Diptic:
The amount of customizable layouts to choose from in this app is pretty staggering, over 165 options are available that can hold anywhere from one to nine photos. The layouts are divided into different groups, so you have the option to choose a classic, jumbo, fancy, or fresh style. Check out the in app store to purchase additional layouts, textures, or aspect ratios.
Once you’ve selected your preferred layout, simply tap each frame to start adding in your images. You’ll have the option of selecting a photo from your camera roll, or taking a new one with the iPhone’s native camera. Each frame within the collage is completely customizable. You can adjust the photos contrast, brightness, or saturation. Zoom in and out of the photo to achieve the perfect crop, with a few swipes of your fingers. Even adjust the border colors, texture, sizes and frame sizes, or corners. It’s pretty impressive how many options there are available to you.
The app contains 14 different filter options, which are all available in the layout editing area. Choose from some fun, vintage, or colorful filters — our personal favorites are Keyhole and Ink & Coin.
Once your collage is complete, the app allows you to choose from a normal, medium, or large export size — a feature that we really like. Now that you’re all finished, you can share your creation on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Tumblr or any app that supports jpegs.
Diptic is available for both Android and iPhone users at a cost of only $0.99. Steal! Have you tried Diptic yet? We’d love to hear about your experience in the comments.
