Learn Photo Apps this Summer and Use in Classroom!

 I have spent 17 summers doing school work in June, July, and August! 
This year, I took the entire month of JUNE OFF! Ok-Ok-I cheated a few times :)
I am amazed how ENERGIZED I feel!

June was a fun filled month! It went by way too fast! I used my iPhone to capture many awesome memories which I always DOCTOR up using my favorite photo effect apps. There are a million photo apps, but here a just a few I love to use. 
I wanted to share them with you because we use many of them in our classroom on our class iPod Touches and iPad Minis for several subject areas!
Kids are easily motivated when using photo apps!

It's my #1 favorite!
I love this one the most because it has frames, effects, text, stickers etc all in one!
Took a black Old Navy teacher looking dress to wear, but my girlies talked me into this fun dress @BCBGeneration when we went shopping at the Outlet Mall! Doubt I will ever wear it again, but it sure was fun dressing up and riding in a pink limo. 
Happy Father's Day Dad!

I made this to share my terrible experience flying home on Spirit Airlines from Myrtle Beach! Flight delay, loaded plane, taxied out and flight was cancelled due to weather and staff "timing" out! We couldn't get a return flight home for 2 days and Spirit was of NO help and offered NO accommodations!

Crazy but true: One of the most popular photo editors just got even better. BeFunky now allows you to stack an UNLIMITED number of effects and edits, AND undo them! And even though YOU control the amount of each edit you make and YOU control how many are added, it’s still one of the easiest photo editors out there to use.

Instagram Pics
I use Instagram mostly for the effects. I delete photos from Instagram once photos appear in my iPhone photo album.

I love pictures!
I love teaching students how to use our class iPod Touches and our iPad Minis to take pictures and to DOCTOR them up! I love watching them create! Have a great summer and keep those TOES away from school work!!

  1. I have really wanted to play around with different photo apps. Thanks for sharing these. I look forward to checking them out.
    I had my nieces over for a slumber party and we used the stickers like you. They work really well and are super cheap pedis! :)

  2. So fun! I LOVED this post. Do ipad minis have cameras? I'm about to get either an ipad mini or iPad

  3. iPad mini's have cameras! Yeah for you! I am always excited to hear teachers getting tech toys!

  4. Another great photo album app especially designed for iPad users. Tablet can become a very good photo album if you make a right choice once purchasing album application. The Photo Album- Photobook new app comes with variety of options included such as creation of photo album on GPS based locations which adds another good reason for extensive photographers to go for this application. Some features include, amendments like photo editing, creation of folders, showing of photos on maps with location information etc.


  5. I’ll grade this blog as an A and it shows how much effort has been put into this.

  6. Let me say that you've done very good photos of your trip. But some of them can be modified with some extra tools, like best photo editor here.
