How Many Users?

Pop Quiz CTL what service has 1/2 billion users?  Go to the head of the class if you guessed Google Photos. Google is self declaring that this is your photo app of choice. And I agree with them for the following reasons.

  • Drop dead easy to use.
  • Unlimited free storage with a google account
  • Sharing is a no brainer
  • Making movies is very simple
  • Backup is automatic.

There is a great article about Google Photos here 

 

Prisma Photo Editing App Revisted

It is has been 8 months since I started using the Prisma Photo Editing App. The number of effects have grown to 44. As I mentioned in my first review –

WARNING!,  WARNING! Do not load Prisma Photo App if you have an immediate appointment because you’re going to be immediately addicted to this great photo filter editor. This app could not be simpler.

  • Load your photo
  • Choose your filter
  • Adjust the intensity
  • Save
  • Share

The app is free and runs on IOS and Android. My only complaint is that the saved edited photos does not have enough resolution to print these fantastic works of art.

Email me your favorite Prisma photo and I”ll put it up on my next post.

Where Are Your Photos Stored From Last Year?

I snap about 200 photos per month. Everyday I get a message from Amazon Prime Photos of the photos I have stored from that date last year, 2015, 2014.

Today it was a special announcement since last year on this date we had friends from Oregon visit and I invited my Spanish teacher and her cousin’s family.

Can you find a photo you snapped on this day last year?
