Trip photos with style- Popsicolor App

Not everyone has the desire to be Ansel Adams or Annie Lebovitz. For many your handy cell phone is what you accompanies you on your travels (dinners out, babies first steps, or in my case, Faeden, our dog’s, cutest moments)! With Instagram (photo sharing program for iOS) hitting the market in October 2010, photo editing became accessible for the masses. Who knew you were talented, right? I tend to use the same filters each time on Instagram so I thought I’d check to see what other options are out there…one word, POPSICOLOR! Popsicolor is an app (for iOS) that takes your photos, imports them and paints them in watercolors. When you launch the app, you can take a photo, or import one from your image library. Once launched it tells you it is making a mess (aka painting your picture) then voila, your picture is revealed. There are color options to select to further tweak you masterpiece, then it’s time to share! All that for .99 cents, who’s in?

For example, I started with this trip picture from Australia of myself and kangaroos (which I adore almost as much as creme brulee, yes, that says a lot)

Megan and 'Roo, Rockhampton, Australia

“Doctor’d it,” as we say in the South, with Popsicolor…and voila, coolness!

 You can also take a photo that has been “Popsicolored” and work your magic on it in Instagram:
