In this modern day of the most high tech gadgets, appliances, cell phones, etc., it is sometimes amazing as to how much more these devices of ours can do, that most people do not know. Case in point, our beloved smart phones, more specifically, the IPhone.

I have always had an interest in photography but it increased dramatically when I recently upgraded to my enormous IPhone6+, aka, my extra "TV". As if the camera on your phone is not good enough, the enhancements you can make with the tools that appear along the bottom of your screen when your camera is open are pretty amazing.  The three little colored overlapping circles you see along the bottom are actually different filters available that can make your photo take on a whole new look. Also the "edit" sign at the top of your photo is useful too. If you touch "edit", tap the little wand at the top, then save your new photo, you will not believe the richness your picture will take on.

Also some of these apps, which are mostly free from your App Store, can turn your pictures even more vibrant. One popular favorite is called Facetune. About a year ago I heard of this App while watching the Today show and was intrigued to check it out. Well, it is amazing.  Facetune will, expose, lighten, darken, whiten teeth and even more. If you want to take a few pounds off or smooth a few "laugh lines", you can with this App. It takes some practice, but once you master it, it's simple. Another amazing App I frequently use is called Vivid Me. Vivid Me will enable you to greatly enhance the colors of your photo. It's a great little extra to make your photos even more beautiful.

Fortunately for me, these types of Apps have allowed me to take photos that are literally "frame worthy".  It is a great concept when taking photos for listings, events, family gatherings and such, that look professionally done, but without the cost involved. It is definitely worth the time to uncover these hidden gems and unlock the potential right at your fingertips!
