I love trying new apps! The ones that stick and become my favorite go to apps for daily tasks are the best. Here is one that I highly recommend. Photofy. It may not be new to you, but it is to me!
This is a sponsored post and I was given a pro account by Photofy to use for feedback purposes. Please see my disclosure for details on why I write articles like this on my blog. All the opinions are my own and I was not paid to write a review. I created all the photos used in this article myself using the app – in fact they will seem very self-serving because they are all my actual photos! I hope you find the content as fascinating as I do! (A little shameless plug never hurt anyone.)
I heard about Photofy a few months ago when I asked John Andrews if he would like to be a guest on my live show, Last Night’s Show with Miz Meliz. He told me that he was so busy because he just took on this new role as CEO of an app called Photofy. I checked it out and it looked pretty cool, another graphics app that I could use on my phone to make memes. Awesome, right? I do that a lot. So, I told him I would love to talk to him about it on the show…and that is finally happening this weekend! I am so excited to announce my special guest is John Andrews! Many of you will remember him from Collective Bias. Please come and see it on Saturday night at 8:30 p.m. Pacific time – LIVE! on
Meanwhile, I have been using Photofy pretty often. I’m not sure yet if it will replace my other go to apps for graphics. I have two I use regularly for certain things and they serve me well. But I will say that I find myself using it more and more and I really like it for it’s quality, ease, and fresh looks. Also, Photofy provides a wide array of useful templates, photos, and phrases that can be easily applied to my own style. That makes what I do so much easier. And, obviously, making things easy is important to me – I have just used the word “easy” like ten times! (Okay, five. But still!)
Here is another thing I love about this app – it has a la carte pricing. You don’t have to pay anything to use it and there are a lot of cool built in features. But to unlock some awesome features it is only $1.99 one time! Then there are special packages you can add when and if you need them, and once you do, you always have access to those tools. You can build your arsenal of design tools as you go and as you grow with the app. I love that! I don’t always want all the capabilities up front, it’s too much to handle, I don’t end up using them, and I often throw in the towel. This allows me to explore the app, find what I need and add on what I want when I am ready. Super!
Here are the amazing features that Photofy has to offer – I find these very strong for a phone app:
Adjust your canvas’ aspect ratio to be square, portrait, landscape or specific photo sizes, and zoom in on your photo.
Choose a an apsect ratio for your photo and crop away the parts you don’t want.
Enhance your photo with our many filters and take control of brightness, contrast, and saturation to get the perfect look for your photo.
If you’re an instagram lover, use instasquare to get it to the square shape.
Use the light effects to get your photo the lighting it needs.
Use the mirror tool to create different reflections of your image.
Blur part of your photo to emphasize an object in the photo.
Clean up the edges and give your image a cleaner look with the sharpen tool.
Now that I have been using Photofy for awhile and see how valuable it is for me and for my business, I am ready to try all the capabilities of the pro account. The pro account is a monthly fee of $10.99 which is pretty standard as apps go.
