How To Create Simple Blog Images With Your Phone

I use an iPhone so I am coming to you from that point of view, but I am fairly sure that most smartphones have this app or apps similar to it.

To the left you see the image I created for yesterday's post.  I loaded my image into the Diptic app.  It was extremely easy - I first picked a layout, in this case it was a single image (you can also make collages).  I added my text and my border and it was ready to go.  In this case I had two different sizes of text and had to do a bit of maneuvering.  I created the image with the large text and saved it to my camera roll.  I then started over and uploaded the image back into Diptic and added the smaller text.  I hope that isn't too confusing; I plan on looking for an app that you can add more than one line of text at a time.

So, I have the picture on my camera roll that I want to use in my blog post, how do I get it on my blog?  I have done it two different ways.  The easiest way is to email the picture to yourself and then go through your normal process of adding pictures using your computer or laptop.

The method I use most often now is to open the Blogger app and upload the picture to my blog post and then go from there on my laptop.  I have been known to write and publish entire posts just using my phone but I do admit the computer is the easiest way!  Your blogging platform might have an app where you can do the same thing.

Adding images makes your blog posts visually appealing and if you use Pinterest, it is practically a must!  What is your image adding process?
