Review: Photo2Cover provides a library of custom frames and montages

Take and convert photos to montage images in magazine and newspaper-style backgrounds.

Photo2Cover is a fun-to-use app filled with custom filters that will convert your photos into magazine and newspaper covers. While there are a number of limitations here, including the text on each of these covers, the overall effect is often very impressive; and because it offers you so many options for how to integrate your photos, change certain headlines, and share the covers, there is a lot of fun to be had here.

When you load up Photo2Cover you can review each of the covers available for your photos. Most of them fit a certain theme -- popular magazine brands, newspaper styles, or press releases with the style and colorations that are instantly recognizable. Choose a style and then take a photo to place on that cover. You can then adjust the photo and get it just right to fit your cover before selecting a headline. The finished cover is then rendered and you can either save it or upload it directly to a social media account of your choice. All of this is very easy to do and takes only a few seconds, and because there are so many options, including wedding and baby announcements, the app is a useful tool as well as a fun one.

If you enjoy making custom images and sharing them on social media or directly with friends, then Photo2Cover will become a popular tool on your iPhone. It's free, easy to use, and loaded with tools that'll make your photos fun to share.
