Choosing a Layout

When you first open Pic Stitch, you have over 70 layouts to choose from!  So, if you have pictures in mind that you want to use pick out the layout you believe would fit best.  If you’re unsure or do not know which picture you will use yet, just pick a random one!  One of the benefits of Pic Stitch is the ability to change layouts, without losing your pictures you’ve been working on!  In addition, you can always swap out pictures if you decide one may be better than the other!

Adding & Manipulating Pictures

Once you have chosen your layout, add some pictures!!  Double tap on a single frame within your layout to have the option of choosing a picture from your camera roll, taking a picture with your phone’s camera, grab a picture from Facebook, or even import one from Dropbox!

After choosing a picture for one frame, the Aviary editor will show up and allow you to edit your picture!  Click here to read our tutorials on how to use the Aviary Editor.  Edit your picture in Aviary, and click “done” when you are finished.  You will now see your edited photo in the selected frame.

Place and hold one finger on this frame.  You will notice a screen pop up, like below.  (We were editing a picture of an adoptable cat at the Cattaraugus County SPCA.)  Once you are in this screen, it’s easier to zoom in and out of your picture.  It also lets you move your picture within the frame, so it displays your photo exactly how you want it to be.  Single tap to exit this screen, once you are satisfied!

The free Pic Stitch version offers you over 70 layouts!! Even the free Pic Stitch is enough to get the job done!!  You can produce a collage that contains anywhere from two to six pictures!  To the left is a sample of some of the layouts you can choose from.  It’s no wonder Pic Stitch has over 500,000 users!




2. Importing & Editing

Once you’ve picked your layout, and have a few photos in mind… It’s time to upload them to the appropriate section in your layout!! This is where Pic Stitch really steps it up a notch!  Not only can you upload your pictures from your phone’s photo album, but you can even take different pictures with your camera at that very moment! And you can import pictures from your Facebook or Dropbox!! 

In addition, Pic Stitch syncs with Aviary, so you are able to edit each photo, one-by-one!  Click Here to be refreshed on how to use Aviary.

3. Exporting & Sharing

Getting the word out about your business or non-profit organization, is sometimes difficult!  The fact that Pic Stitch gives you an option to share is AWESOME!  You can export or share your Pic Stitch collage with the following: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Path, Email, your personal photo album, and/or even send your collage to Walgreens to have it printed!!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for details on how to insert, position and edit pictures on your Pic Stitch Collage!  Below are a few more adoptables at the Cattaraugus County SPCA!


Your Business on Vine

Try putting your business on Vine!  It’s a great smartphone app that has a lot to offer!  Below is featured Armond’s Fashions in Olean, NY.  We uploaded it by YouTube, so it will not “loop” when it plays.  When you post on the Vine app it will show as a loop.  Additionally, if you share it on your Facebook or Twitter through the Vine app, it will loop on these social media as well.

Leave us comments or questions you have on Vine below, or message us on Facebook!

Regular fit!  Slim fit! Big & Tall!  36 Short to 60 Long!  This is the “IT” grey suit for the season!  Prices starting at just $145 & “tailored” for free!


Here are some tips I learned on using Vine for a video like this.  Remember, this was the first time I used this app in this fashion.  I found it quite simple, easy to use!  So I know you would be able to use this app too!!

Tip 1: Floyd, the mannequin, insisted on falling over a few times!  (He was getting restless from all of the modeling.)  After taking a few plunges, it was difficult to find the place where he was originally standing.  Later, it was suggested to place a few pieces of tape on the ground, to align him in the same spot!

Tip 2: The taping idea was not only great for Floyd, but I’d recommend it for the photographer as well!  This way, you can be standing/sitting in the same spot when you continue to take the photos and videos.

Tip 3: Plan ahead!  It makes things go smoother if you know what message you want to get across before hand.

Tip 4: Tell a story!  Be creative, or goofy.  Have a tutorial and share information with others!

Tip 5: Highlight the strengths of your business.  Go ahead and set yourself apart from other companies.  Your business is unique, let it shine!!

Vine’s Camera Features

You’ve made it this far, no turning back!  Let’s hop right into the features that the Vine camera has to offer.  Make sure you are on your “Home” page, then tap the camera button in the top right hand corner!  You will be taken to a screen to record your video, with a few extra buttons*, located below.


1. Camera Flip- This feature switches which camera you use, either the front or back.

2. Grid- If you happened to have read or skimmed through our Instagram section, you may have read about the grid feature.  It really is just a grid you can turn on and off!  But it is quite helpful if you are trying to center an item, make sure your video is being taped straight, etc.

3. Focus- by tapping this button, you will enable the focusing tool.  Once you have this editing feature enabled, just tap the item on your screen that you want to focus in on.  It will make everything within the same level visible.  The rest of the items will be out of focus.  This typically happens whether you want it to or not for most camera apps.  Although, having this feature allows you to focus on exactly what you want!

4. Ghost- this is the coolest feature that Vine has to offer!  By pressing this button, it enables a “ghost-like” or shadow from where your previous clip ended.  This is great for wanting to change only one or two things in your video.  Check out the section on putting your business on Vine, where we used Armond’s as an example!  I’ll also give you a few tips from my own learning experience!

But how do you actually record!?  Just tap the actual scene you are viewing on your smartphone.  Hold it down for as long as you want a certain clip to last. Then as soon as you release it, it will stop recording!  Continue to do this until you used up all of your time allotted… or whenever you are satisfied with you clip!  Then, hit the arrow pointing to your right (in the right hand corner) to write a caption for your video.  Choose whether you share this video with your Facebook or Twitter account.  And then, voilà!! You’ve finished your Vine video!
