Not everyone has a boyfriend or friend with them at all times who goes the extra mile to make sure you get that perfect photo for Instagram. Odds are if you ask a stranger to take your photo, they're not going to participate in a photo shoot.

The SOVS app and the SOVS2 app, which stands for SomeOne Very Special, can better convey the shot you want to your conscripted photographer.

The South Korean app lets you choose an outline of a pose -- it looks a bit like the chalk outline at a crime scene. Whoever takes your photo simply overlaps you and the avatar to achieve your ideal composition.

You can choose between a square photo composition or 3:4 ratio. The outlines are adjustable, and you can move them around to get your best shot.

The app also helps guide photographers to the best background too.

"In Background Mode, you can photograph the desired background previously, and show it translucent," the app description read. According to SOVS, you can overlap the photo onto your desired background.

Of course, a photo app wouldn't be complete without filters for the finishing touch.

The SOVS apps include ways to pose with a friend, a quartet, make a creative heart shape with your significant other and more.

SOVS costs 99 cents is designed for solo shots. SOVS2 is free and has fun poses for groups. You can access more poses with in-app purchases.
