5 Apps to Take Your OOTD Next Level
Every fashion blogger knows that bringing their OOTD (Outfit of the Day, to the uninitiated) a-game is of utmost importance if you want to cultivate a following, build a successful brand, and partner with industry leaders. While learning to be a dab-hand with Photoshop is to your advantage, busy bloggers understand that time of often of the essence – and a useful photo editing tool or two on your smart phone can save hundreds of editing hours that can be better spent writing great content… or online shopping the latest fashion finds.
Not sure which apps to invest your time, money and valuable storage memory on? Check out five of our top picks to get started, and up the ante on your OOTD snaps.
Want to imitate the shallow depth of field effect that can usually only be achieved with a larger camera and multi-element lens? AfterFocus offers a user-friendly way of achieving a shallow depth of field, so your main subject is in focus and the background is blurred. Simply mark your image as to where the foreground and background are, and voila! Your OOTD will take center stage – even in the busiest of settings.
Celebrated as the top photo collage maker in the iTunes app store, Pic Stitch makes it easy to stich photos together – allowing you to easily show off the details of your outfit from every angle. It’s also great for before and after shots, and to highlight how a piece looks buttoned/ unbuttoned, or paired with different items.
Looking for the perfect all-rounded photo-editing app? Snapseed allows you to manually adjust exposure and white balance, tweak shadows and highlights, enhance details, adjust perspective and more – or you can give your shots a quick once-over with the auto adjust feature for instant fixes to create depth, vibrancy and ambiance.
A Beautiful Mess
When the creators of one of the world’s most popular style and DIY blogs launch their own app, people are quick to take note and download – but A Beautiful Mess is a great app in its own right, offering custom filters, fun fonts, and hand-drawn doodles to add some oomph to your outfit snaps.
Want to protect your images and ensure your brand gets recognition each time your snaps are shared or re-posted online? iWatermark allows you to easily add text, logo or QR code watermarks to your photos before you share them on social media or your blog. Adjust the scale, opacity, font, color, size, position and angle of your watermark, and watermark images individually or choose batch processing to quickly and easily watermark all of your snaps in a cinch.
