Ty's Take

Ty’s Take | My Favorite Photo Apps

It’s an Instagram world and I’m just living in it… or at least it feels that way. Let’s face it.  Everybody is a photographer.   Whether its a picture of a grumpy cat, your feet in the sand, or a sunset selfie, we all like capturing the moment with a camera. Even though I like the high-res and focus of a REAL camera and the effects you can do to the images after with amazing software, there are some pretty cool apps that let you take that image and really get creative.

Our phones our becoming extensions of our eyes as well as our ears, so I’ve rounded up some of my favorite tools for creating unique images and layouts with your photos.
