Everybody knows the saying, “a picture is worth a thousand words”, but what if you can add actual words to the picture, wouldn’t it be worth more? Many of us take pictures and share them to family members or friends and there’s usually a story behind each picture. We get inspired to take pictures because there was something in the moment that captured our eyes whether it was something funny, unusual or unexpected. The best stories are accompanied with pictures and wouldn’t it be great if you can enhance these pictures with words that tell exactly what you were thinking or feeling at the moment? Well now you can thanks to a mobile app called Snapchat.
Save Each Moment in the “story” feature
So you’re out and about and walking around in your new environment (it’s been awhile since you’ve seen modern civilization), what do you do? The answer is take pictures of course! The Snapchat app gives you all the “cool” features that make your pictures stand out. For instance, you can take a quick picture of what’s going on around you and add a little text. The real cool factor is that you not only can add text but you can resize the text and even add colors to give it a little more flavor. For example, if you happen to see and take a picture of somebody falling, then add the text “POW!” for added bonus comedy effect. Another neat feature of Snapchat is that once you’ve taken a picture, you can add it into your “story” mode and everybody that’s been added as a friend in your Snapchat can see your picture for 24 hours – no need to manually send it to everyone in your contacts!
Use videos for your story
Don’t feel like sending pictures? How about taking a short video instead? With the Snapchat app, you can be the director of your own story while you are having the time of your life exploring new places. The only downside to the short video feature is that it is REALLY short – only about 10 seconds worth of video recording. But this is not a problem for a savvy videographer such as yourself, right? Another interesting thing you can do with this app is that you can customize your video or photo on the fly. This means you don’t have to mess with computer applications such as Adobe Photoshop or Windows Movie Maker to customize your video or photo.
Snapchat has other features which makes it an ideal app to play with for everyone that loves photos. Find out today what you can do with Snapchat and create your own stories
