Learning New Things – May Photo a Day 28

It is said that learning new things keeps your mind working and staves off Alzheimer’s. Good thing as I need all the brain cells I can get. I have two stinkin smarty boys who keep me on my toes and a history of Alzheimer’s in the family. 2012 must be a year of learning. I am learning to blog (still working on it), I have learned several new apps, and some new business tools. We are just half way through the year, wonder what’s next.

Today I wanted to share a new app I have been playing with, Pic Stitch. It is a free iPhone app. It allows you to photo “block” your pictures into one pic. Kinda cool. I had been seeing many of my instagram friends (also a new year learning thing) using something like this and wanted to figure it out. My awesome niece lead me to the app and history is made. 🙂

Here’s a quick how to. Super easy you don’t really even need me to show you but I am pretty proud of myself for figuring it out. I used it for May 28 photo a day

28. Weather  Rain Dance (the end result) Sweet P was dancing in the living room as it was just to hot to go outside. When he grabbed the maracas it reminded me of a “rain dance”.

When in Pic Stitch you’ll have some options to choose from on how many photos and the shape/layout you want. I started with these three photos.

You can edit them right within the app, cropping changing the lighting you can even add silly stickers if you want. Haven’t tried that one yet myself but my hubby has a super funny one he did. Since I added the writing on with another app I saved this layout and added the words. I do believe that Pic Stick has a word option… still learning. 🙂 When you upload to Instagram you can still play with the lighting.

What have you learned to do recently?
