Over was noted by the flattering response of Jenson Freid himself, who called Over a “fantastic idea”. So what is so much fond of Freid and many other users of the application Over? Let’s see.
In Over, the process of adding text is made clear and convenient – it will not get confused. The whole process looks like this: you select a photo, insert a text, change its color, size, position, and font – all this is done in a matter of seconds.
Initially, not all fonts are available in the program – to gain access to all, you will have to pay an additional dollar. Although, you can not do this – embedded fonts, in my opinion, quite enough. Generally, fonts are the main advantage of this program. Here Typic is clearly losing.
Adding an inscription to the photo, it remains only to save the result or share it with friends in social networks, the benefit of the program allows you to do it without any problems.
By the way, Over in Instagram has an official account, in which are laid out the most interesting work done with the help of Over.
Functionally, the program is not very strong, and for many, it will be a serious drawback – nothing but adding inscriptions to photos, the program can not do. But on the other hand, when you work with it, you do not pay attention to the program itself – you are immersed in the process. Nothing distracts, does not bother, all the elements of the interface are in their place. In this application, the rule “best design is a complete lack of design.” It seems that this is the answer to the question asked at the beginning of the review.
Poster Maker & Poster Designer
Make your photos more attractive by adding a frame or a mirror effect. A wide range of frames, borders, scaling, the ability to choose both your photo and the standard background – all this can turn a regular picture into a colorful poster.
Different types of fonts will allow you not just to create a quote, but whole designer art. Templates of your choice, unique touches will transform your photos beyond recognition, so it will be difficult to distinguish whether this poster is made by a professional or ordinary user.

April – Poster Maker
Do you want to create really unique photos? Then make them a real masterpiece using this application. You can combine photos with each other, and create an album for yourself, the location of photos depends only on your desire, so the application itself will offer you some figures. In addition, it is quite easy to do, and you can literally choose the right photos on the move, and remove those that are not needed. Now you can create posters with your image easily and simply!
What are the only features not offered by the software from the App Store for decorating everyday photos – filters, frames, collages. And if you take the application PosterLabs, then also colorful templates of magazine covers and posters.
Why is it at all necessary – a difficult question. Probably to a greater extent in order to please yourself. Well, slightly dissolve the feathers in front of friends in social networks. Despite the obvious pathos of the idea, the PosterLabs templates are not pretentious. Yes, and the inscriptions are such that imitation is read right away and can not deceive anyone.
The program includes two packages of templates: Classic and Stylish, only 60 pieces. Downloading graphics in the Goodies menu and it’s free.
The process of creating a picture is extremely simple. You can start by selecting the design and then pick up the images for insertion, or you can first decide on the photos. The frame added to the template is zoomed, rotated and processed by color filters. Some templates also allow you to change the inscriptions, but not all of them – one or two main ones, the title. And since almost every poster and cover retains an affiliation with the PosterLabs program and a given topic (texts like “always together” or “you get it that way too!”).
Ready graphics can be saved to a gallery or one of the supported social networks. Of the popular ones we have Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, even in PosterLabs there is an Oriental exotic like Weibo or WeChat.
The program is free, well implemented and really can be useful for a fan or some small benefit. I recommend that you look at all the habitues of social networks and lovers of digital photography. Suddenly PosterLabs is exactly what you missed.
