So you have all your pictures taken and you’re happy with them. Start looking for apps for photo editing. I think Photoshop would be an excellent choice, although I personally have no idea how to use it! If you’re using a mobile device, there are plenty of options on Google Play or the App Store. You can see my pictures in my group, if you’d like!
What I use for photo editing.
I recommend using a loading platform, (eg. Sonlet, Booteek360, Shoppe), Each of these have a monthly fee for using, but they are phenomenal for storing pictures, posting pictures, and keeping track of your inventory. I personally use LaCollage for my pictures. It also has a monthly fee, but it is also a major time saver. With it, you can put the style, size, price and your name on each picture, in one easy step. When you get one style and size set up, all you need to do is take the picture and save. Then change the size when appropriate, and you’re reading to move on to the next size. It also puts the price on each picture. And if you use any of the loading platforms, your pictures can be loaded straight to the site as soon as you take your pictures! Everything in one easy step! That’s what I like! LuLaPhoto and LuLaAwesome are two more good options to use. These are all available for mobile use in the App Store.
Collages can be used, if you are doing a large picture with a close up of the design. Some of the apps I use for that are Pic Collage, Pic Stitch, PhotoCollage, PicLab and InstantCollage. PicMonkey and Canva have collage designs, too!
Whether you use one of these or not, be sure to include your name on every single picture. Besides wanting all of your pictures to be similar in style and look, you also want customers to know they are yours! Don’t put all that work in to them, and someone else uses it and takes credit for it! If you plan on doing multi consultant sales online, most of the groups require you to have your name on all of your pictures, so you might as well do it now! Again, it’s a time saver for later..You can also watermark them. This is all up to you! Go with what you like!
Apps for personalizing
I like to use WordSwag for making graphics, and putting all the information on the pictures. While WordSwag is my favorite, I also use Typorama and Font Candy! These can all be found for mobile devices in the App Store or Google Play. Look around for different versions to find one you like. Most of the ones I use are free, except the ones I mentioned earlier that have fees. I like FREE, but then who doesn’t? Am I right?
And then there are GRAPHICS
When you get everything just the way you like it, and have started selling, you will want to start making your own graphics. You will use these in your group for anything you want to promote or interact with. For these, I use PicMonkey and Canva. Both are excellent, but my preference is PicMonkey! Play around with both to find your favorite!
