Perfect App for Protecting Your Photos

If you take a lot of photos on your phone and want to keep them safe from copyright thieves but still post them on social media, I have a solution for you that will do exactly that.

A noticeable and professional watermark is the way to go. Now, you are probably wondering why you can’t just look up any old watermarking app for the need instead of reading the rest of this post. Here’s why – most apps for this purpose just don’t fit the job.

Most apps meant to do this either offer the ability to use text as a watermark or allow you to use a free design template. What’s wrong with this? You don’t have the chance to upload and use your own logo if you already have one.

The only one I’ve found that allows for this is called “Multi Layer” and best of all it’s free.

Here’s the icon from the Google Play store to make sure you get the right app.

 

Quality Dictation App for Avid Writers

While writing has long been a passion of mine, there are times when due to any number of circumstances, I may not be able to sit down at my keyboard and type.

For some writers, it can be a matter of carpal tunnel syndrome, for others, too much staring at a screen and for still more writers, it can be that inspiration strikes at an inopportune moment. This type of thing is why dication apps can be so handy for us.

As an Android user, I recently tried out an app from the Google Play Store and think it might be helpful for others in this field. I’d urge you to check out Speechnotes and see if it is beneficial to you.

 

 

Lose your cell phone photos? No reason to panic.

If you don’t use a cloud backup or for some other reason lose or delete your photos by mistake, you might be tempted to panic a bit. After all, these are you art, your memory and whatever else.

Some of you might think you can not recover these while others will think that the only way to do so will either included extensive skills or pricey software.

The best things is, it won’t cost you a dime and you don’t have to be some sort of technical wizard.

Got Inspiration?

Easy way to get inspired

So, a while back, I posted an article taking about the necessity of inspiration for artists. Whether your chose medium is painting, sculpture, performing arts of whatever the case may be, inspiration is essential.

Today, many of us use smart phones. And with smart phones comes the availability of various apps. One such app that can possibly help to get those creative juices flowing for Android users (I’m sure iphones have something similar) is simply called “Inspirational Quotes.”

It’s a free listing of a seemingly endless number of famous and inspirational quotes from some of the greatest thinkers, innovators and entertainers of all time. At the very least, something like this might help to kick start the flow of your creative juices.
