Turn your photos into beautiful storyboards with PicFrame for iPhone and iPad

Turn your photos into beautiful storyboards with PicFrame for iPhone and iPad

I have been impatiently waiting for my favorite iPad photography apps to update for the new iPad's Retina display, and a great one for creating collages finally has -- PicFrame. PicFrame is universal for both iPhone and iPad and comes with 60 frames, or as Photographers call them, storyboards.

Of the many different apps that offer similar functionality, PicFrame has always been one of my favorites. It's very easy to use and offers some of the best options for traditional looking collages. All of the frames are customizable and adjusting them is as simple as dragging the borders around the screen. You can also adjust the color of the frame with the color picker or choose one of the 36 patterns.

There are 60 different templates available and each one is available in 1:1, 3:2, 4:3, 2:3, and 3:4 ratios. These templates include anywhere from 1 to 6 photo frames. If you want to round the corners of your frames, PicFrame allows you adjust the style (or radius) with a simple slider. You can also swap the positions of two photos by dragging one photo on top of the photo you want it to switch places with.

One of the other great features of PicFrame is that you can double tap any of your photos to further edit each one individually. You can rotate and flip as well as add one of 17 filters. This allows you to get even more creative w

Once you're done creating your storyboard, you can share it to Twitter, Facebook Flickr, Instagram, or Tumblr with a max resolution of 3264px on the longest side.

The Good

  • 60 frames
  • Each frame has 5 aspect ratios
  • Ability to make rounded corners
  • Can edit color of frame or choose a pattern
  • Easy and quick to use

The Bad

  • The only shape for the frames is rectangular
  • There can sometimes be some lag when performing actions like rotation and swapping images

The bottom line

With the new iPad and Photo Stream, I find myself using the iPad to edit and share photos taken with my iPhone quite often. Making collages with PicFrame is particularly nice, because, since each photo in the collage is so small, the iPad's big screen makes is much more enjoyable.

PicFrame may not include a bunch of fancy features, but it does an excellent job at quickly and easily creating stunning collages of your photos that can be shared with family and friends.

If you've created any awesome collages, please share them with us in the iMore Photography forum!

Cool review, one other thing you can do is double tap a photo which is in a frame to rotate or mirror and apply effects.

There is no in app AirPrint support, but you can save at 2400x2400 to your photo roll and from there do whatever you want.

Please help!! When I tried using this app and used photos from my camera roll they were way too big and wouldn't fit in the frames. What am I doing wrong??
