Add it all up and what do you get? Photographs. Thousands and more thousands of photographs, most of which take up residence in our iPhones. Here’s how we take photos and turn them into attractive digital postcards.
One App, Many Postcards
It’s one thing to simply take a photo and email it or share it online. But it’s something else again to take a photo or two or three and dress them up all nice and pretty.
That’s what Typic Pro does. It’s not exactly a postcard app, but that’s how we use it because it’s so customizable.
Even the name of Typic Pro is somewhat descriptive of what it does (though Custom Postcard Maker would be better). Type, as in text and fonts. And Pic, as in picture or photograph.
Typic Pro comes with 28 different fonts not already on your iPhone. So, you can express yourself with a blend of photos and text, and move them around all over the screen.
Postcard-like design elements are easily dropped into place so you can mix and match text, photos, and backgrounds in the postcard design.
That’s what’s easily created in Typic Pro by blending designs with text to match the photos.
How do you do all that? Tools. Elegant, self-explanatory tools.
Text can be dropped in and moved around on the screen.
Each text element can have different fonts, different sizes, shadows, and colors. There’s even a design elements tool.
Each of the 36 design elements can be moved around on screen, size changed, and color changed so you have a nearly infinite variety.
Typic Pro also does captions, but there’s a few photo enhancement filters that control the frame and blur and other options.
And, because Typic Pro relies on your iPhone Photo Library, you have the option to save the creation, or share online via email, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
The name Typic Pro doesn’t do justice to the quality of the digital postcards you can create. I don’t really want to complain, but it could use more than just basic colors. Carol says neon is in these days (and she has the fingernails to prove it).
And, as with any app, it could use more fonts.
