Diptic is a fairly simple program that lets you make cool-looking collages using photos you take with your camera or what you have stored in your iPhone's photo library. You start by selecting from 20 different layouts, such as one photo across the top with three smaller ones across the bottom, or one big image on the left with four small shots down the right side, as examples. Then, just add images to each frame and move or zoom each one to make it fit just right. From there you can rotate an image 90 degrees within a frame or create a mirror image of the shot using the Transform features. Finally, you can adjust color, brightness, and contrast to bring out certain shots or make them similar to the others.
Diptic is a great idea for creating quick collages, but it seems like it needs a couple more things for it to be a great app. For one thing, you can't add text to your collages or individual images, which could be useful for calling out each picture. You're also limited by your sharing options with only the capability to e-mail your finished collage or saving it to your library. Something like Facebook (or other social site) connectivity would be better. But even with these minor issues, Diptic offers a fun and easy way to make neat looking collages quickly, and is a good option for people who want to do something more with their iPhone images.
Diptic lets you combine and edit photos to create awesome collages that can be shared with friends and family via email, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr or Posterous. With text captions, 14 filters, rounded borders with pretty textures and 165 customizable layouts, there are unlimited options to create unique photo collages! FEATURES: 165 fully customizable layouts (one to nine photos in each layout). Additional layouts are available as in-app purchase. Add text captions to your Diptics. You can adjust the text size, font, color, style and placement. Choose from dozens of fun border textures (in-app purchase) to add the perfect touch to your Diptic. Customize your inner frame lines by dragging and moving joints. Create unique layouts or make minor tweaks to better fit the frame to picture. Apply one of 14 filters ([note: iOS 5 is requirement for Diptic now]), as well as adjust brightness, contrast, hue and color saturation for each image. Border controls galore! Create perfectly rounded inner and outer borders, and adjust the thickness and color. Swap photos between frames. Use photos from your camera roll, Facebook or Flickr, or snap a photo on the spot with your iPhone or iPad camera. Photo picker: Select photos individually or multiple photos at once! Or if youre not sure which pictures to use, try the random photo selection tool and roll the dice to randomly select photos from your camera roll. Share Diptics via email or send to Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, Twitter (must have iOS5 for Twitter export), Posterous, Tumblr, or any app that accepts JPGs (Camera+, Filterstorm, Dropbox, Evernote, GoodReader, etc.).
