A picture is worth a thousand words -- and WordFoto takes this quite literally by artistically splattering meaningful words all over your photos, transforming them into typographic works of art.
Creating your masterpieces is simple -- just add the words you wish to appear in your photo and WordFoto will choose where and how large the words appear on your image and apply a filter. You can also choose from 8 preset styles or create your own by choosing the colors for shadows/highlights and adjusting saturation, brightness, contrast, padding, and font. You can store up to 8 of these custom styles that can be quickly accessed for other photos.
If you still want to make a few more adjustments, head to the "finetune" tab where you can make further changes to the edge, edge threshold, and color tolerance. You can also force the entire image to be re-rendered for other word placement options.
Speaking of word placement, sometimes the wrong words end up emphasized. For example, in this example, the most important word should be "California", yet WordFoto made "state" the largest word in the photo.
WordFoto definitely needs to include the ability to mark the importance of the words. After many rendering attempts, this was the closest I could get to focusing on the word "California".
My other complaint is that you cannot share directly with Twitter. You can only share to your Camera Roll (from where you can then tweet), Facebook, and email.
Despite these two changes I'd like to see, I still recommend WordFoto for creating photos with a message because it does this very well and quite beautifully. Not to mention, WordFoto is extremely easy to use
