Review: PicTwit streamlines photo editing and text tagging for social media sharing

Create and share photos, specifically for social media sites.

PicTwit, as the name implies, is designed to make editing images before uploading to Twitter easier, but it also works with Facebook. The result is a tool, loaded with options and editing features, that work toward making your images more social media friendly. From the actual editing options to the interface and text adding tools included, this is a great editing suite for those that plan on uploading their images when done. The downside is the layout, which makes accessing menu items a challenge, at first.

After opening PicTwit, you can either load an image from your library or take a new one with your camera. The app will help you scale and crop the image to fit the upload requirements of the social media sites you select, and you can then add things to the image, including smiley faces, text tags for the share, or frames and filters. There are a lot of options here, but the menus are not always easy to navigate. There will be a lot of trial and error finding your way through the menus to the tools that you actually need. While the menu interface is small and out of the way, it isn't well labeled.

Despite the poor labeling, however, the number of options makes it easy to eventually find what you are looking for so you can start uploading images to the social network of your choice. It works fast, the ability to add text is very nice, and the app does everything it can to prep your images for the guidelines of those networks. It's a great tool if you plan on sharing your images to Twitter or Facebook, frequently.
