How I Use My iPhone- Part 4: Content Creation
It’s amazing how the iPhone has replaced so many gadgets that we used to carry around. The most impactful, I think, has been the camera. If you take the time to think about just how much more is captured today versus 15 years ago and it’s quite staggering. Not only that, but it made quality photography affordable to an extent never before seen. Before the advent of social media and the iPhone, people would still print their digital photos.
The iPhone in your pocket that we pull out at every uncomfortable moment packs more computing power than the space shuttle that went to the moon. It is because of the iPhone that literally anyone, ANYONE, can take high-quality photos, record high-quality audio, and record high-quality video. Not only that, but you can edit that content in any number of desktop quality, pro-class apps available for download.
I think Adobe Lightroom for iPhone (and iPad) is a fantastic app for editing. It is a powerful tool. Next to that is Enlight and then Pixelmator. Each one has its particular strong points and ‘look’ and they’re all easy to use. Play around with them and you can find what works for the look and quality that you’re going for.
Next up is the memeing of the photos. I have used Over for several years and think it’s the best for putting words over your images. They have done a great job of making creating things easier by putting inspiring images and quotes into their app to give users some great ideas. As an added bonus, this app was developed here in Louisville, KY by Aaron Marshall!
