There’s an app for that! Easy to use and readily available, photo apps do everything from improving your shooting technique to stylizing an existing photo. We’ve identified our five favorite editing apps to help you get your photos, logos or other artwork ready to design custom PlaqueMaker products yourself, such as photo frame plaques, picture frames, metal photo prints, memorials and more.


5 Photo Apps for Awesome Customized Results

  1. ProShot – Need to improve your photography skills first? This app teaches you how to correct bad lighting and improve your technique. It is your very own photography class and the perfect way to take your talents to the next level.
  2. PicMonkey – Want to resize your photo to fit a specific design? This app changes the format size (4×6, 3×5, 8×10) and lets you customize them with frames, text, colors or textures. It is the perfect way to resize a photo or logo to use on one of our award plaques or granite memorial.
  3. Facetime – Ready to take photos of loved ones on special occasions? This app is primarily a portrait editing app. With the variety of filters available, you can create a unique portrait on a metal photo print, a personalized photo frame or a beautiful memorial.
  4. PicLab – Looking for a great Photoshop app for your phone? Add filters, text, frames or artwork to enhance your pictures. Customize your photograph, then you search through the hundreds of gifts on PlaqueMaker.com to find the perfect fit for your loved one.
  5. Whitagram – Love an all-purpose edit program? This app customizes photos with a selection of filters, text and frames. Like PicMonkey, you can output your photos in different formats. PlaqueMaker can work with most standard formats to create a one-of-a-kind piece.
