PIXOTALE 1.5: VISUAL STORYTELLING IN MINUTES
What’s missing from top social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter? There’s no story. People love to share and tell stories – whether it’s about their latest vacation or something cool they learned in school. Pixotale 1.5 brings to life these precious moments with their easy-to-use iPhone app that lets you create, share, and discover beautiful stories right from your mobile.
The features and usage are pretty elementary: download this free app at the App Store, once installed you will be given the option to begin right away, OR view samples from other users. Each story is called an album; containing pictures, maps (locations), text, and a video. The last one is a new addition since their latest update this October.
If you choose not to see other people’s albums, you can immediately make your own story. Choose an image from the many sources available online (your social media accounts such as Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, etc.) OR on your phone’s gallery. If you want to reference a photo from Google image search, Pixotale makes that possible too.
Pick your cover photo (this is what appears first when someone views your album), type in a title, choose to add a subtitle (or not), then add more text to start telling a really good story. After you’re finished, just click on Publish and your work will be available for viewing on other devices like laptops, tablets, and even desktops.
A cool feature is that Pixotale automatically saves your draft; say goodbye to meltdowns in case your phone battery dies. Another neat attribute from this iPhone app is that you can easily share albums on your favorite social networking sites. Friends and family not online? Email them the link to your awesome album.
After their most recent update, they are now able to support photo editing and filters. Add all kinds of effects to your photo before posting. Make your friends jealous of your ultra chic images that look vintage. Plus, you can add videos now. That makes your albums look more interesting. In love with someone’s album? Just hit the Like button and give a comment.
Pixotale: Connecting Through Storytelling
What makes this app truly lovable is its convenience and ease of use. The design is very user-friendly, and takes just seconds to learn. If you’re a photo addict, simply snap, create, and share in minutes – wherever you are. Now, you can instantly tell the world about your new skydiving hobby, or your latest trip to Barcelona. Even everyday pleasures become unique stories: Autumn leaves, a cup of coffee with friends, or a rainy afternoon with nothing to do.
The best part? Pixotale is free. Yes – download and make your own stories without spending a single cent. The only thing you need to invest in is time and creativity. If you downloaded the earlier version of this app but found it limiting, you may want to try it again. This time, they have fixed the bugs and now allow users to include Youtube videos. If you haven’t tried this before, it’s never too late to create your own beautiful story today.
Regardless of where you belong; whether on the beginner or the intermediate side, Procreate will provide you with all the needs to create an amazing art. Of course, you should first master all the features and tools in it.
