Instagram!

You have an iPhone (or Android phone) with a great point and shoot camera built in, but something is still...missing.  I felt the same way.  I was taking hundreds of pictures of people and places, but tried to stay away from my computer as much as possible (for no other reason than utter laziness).  So how can someone add cool effects to their photos without having to send the photos to their computer and then spend MINUTES looking for the right filters?

INSTAGRAM!

Instagram is a great FREE app that allows you to add filters to all those point and shoot pictures that are clogging up your phone.  And once you add those filters, the pictures are uploaded to a "social media" website that allows your friends and family to view your masterpieces (almost) instantly.  If you don't want to share them, you can always turn your phone on "Airplane Mode" and this will place the filtered photo in your camera roll, without placing it in your uploaded folder.

Filters can be subtle...

Or extreme...

In color...
Or black and white...
And allow you to blur edges as well...
Photos can be taken from within the app, or you can import photos to your phone and apply the filters.

Overall, Instagram has made taking pics on my phone, fun again.  Have a great day!
