Diptic PDQ Review
Create and share amazing photo collages with Diptic PDQ for iPhone and iPad
If you can’t think of a way to best to show off your photos, you could give Diptic PDQ a try, which enables you to create unique and attractive collages from them – a bit of a step up from just the usual addition of filters.
In order to create a collage, you must first select the photos you want to use from your Camera Roll. They appear as thumbnails in a tray at the top of the screen and at the bottom is a collection of collage designs. One is selected by default and the photos are automatically added, but any design can be selected and the photos will auto-fill. The positions of photos can be swapped by dragging the thumbnails to frames, pinch-and-spread gestures zoom in and out, and dragging positions the photo in a frame.
A menu button at the top enables the border thickness and corners to be adjusted and the colour set. Tapping a photo displays a set of controls for adjusting it. For example, the brightness, saturation and contrast can be modified and users can rotate and flip the photo horizontally or vertically. A collection of filters are available, such as sepia, washed out, and so on. The finished collage can be saved or shared through the usual channels such as Mail, Messages, Facebook and Twitter.
This is a nice app that is well designed and has lots of good controls for adjusting photos and collage frames, but there are many other apps that do a similar sort of thing. It’s also iOS 7-only, which makes it incompatible with older devices.
A nice app for creating collages, but this may not be enough in such a competitive market.
