Our app of the week is Photo Stack, an app available for the iPhone and iPad that lets you make a collage of photo snapshots, right on your iOS device. I downloaded the app onto my iPad a few days ago, and within half an hour, I had a nice collage of family photos that elicited “oohs” and “ahhs” when I saw my family this weekend.
To conceptualize Photo Stack, image tossing a bunch of photos onto a tray on your kitchen table, and then organizing those snapshots into a visually pleasing display. Imagine now, though, that you could resize those snapshots, to make some more or less prominent than others.
There are 4 main commands that you can execute with a photo in Photo Stack after selecting the photo from your library:
- Resize it, with a pinching gesture;
- Rotate it clockwise or counterclockwise, by turning it with two fingers;
- Send it to the back (below overlapping photos) with a double tap; and
- Bring it to the front (above overlapping photos) with a single tap.
When you’re done, you can save it to your iPad’s photo album, email it, copy it, or post it to Facebook or Twitter.
Have you tried Photo Stack? It’s free in the App Store, and available for both the iPhone and iPad. There’s also a paid version, which I haven’t tried.
