In our first piece about photo apps, we brought you the scoop on Diptic, Phonto & Instagram. Since then, there have been so many apps that have popped up on the scene that it’s hard to keep track! Have no fear- the team here at /excelamktg uses photo apps every day to make our clients’ content look visually stunning, and we’re ready to share more of our favorites with you.


This app allows you to choose from a variety of formats using the background image of your choice to make professional looking poster graphics. You are able to use the font and colors that the app provides for each layout, or you can completely customize everything to your liking. Phoster is great for designing a full-scale advertisement, or simply for adding a major dose of style & design to a photo that you’d like to share. People’s eyes are drawn to photos on a multitude of social media platforms, so adding text to your images is a major plus.

First, you’ll need to choose your layout from the home screen:

Now you get to choose between some finishing touches for a more polished look:

Et voila! Now you have a visually appealing vehicle for whatever message you’d like to send to your fan base.
