Layout from Instagram

Layout is exactly what it says it is.  You take or upload up to nine of your favorite pictures and then see them put together in a variety of different collages.  Pick your favorite collage and you are done.  Or, use the various editing features to put things together anyway you choose.  Be as creative as you want.  You can select people by searching their names or change up the layouts.  This app is great for making and sharing special collages.

Google Photos

Google Photos is an awesome way to store and organize your photos.  When searching for a certain picture you can search by person, location, or item so it’s much easier to find your pictures.  Photos are stored on your cloud so they take up less space on your phone and are safe if anything should happen to your phone!  Editing and sharing tools are available.  Google Photos even has a time hop feature that shows you pictures that you took in the past!

This is a must for anyone who takes lots of photos.1117nexusae0_Google-Photos-icon-logo
