How I Picjoy

Picjoy came into my life right when I needed it.  I take so many pictures on my phone but when the time comes to share the photo or find it to show someone, I can’t.  I scroll and scroll and scroll.  Do you have this problem too?  That’s why Picjoy is a L I F E S A V E R!!

What I love about Picjoy:

  • customized tagging
  • automatic organization
  • backup to iCloud
  • create stories
  • deleting
  • quick tagging
  • sorting

These things are so easy to do.  Here’s a quick run-through of what I do as soon as I open the app (usually after a few events have occurred that warranted mass photo taking.)

Photo Apps You’ll Love

Using Tags to Tell a Bigger Story

If you use Picjoy, you know that you can tell a story about your photos. Not only can you provide back-story, context, and insights through text entries, you can tell a larger story by using tags.

What are Tags?

Tags categorize your photos. For example, you might tag pictures of your dogs “dog” and “pet” and pictures of your cats “cat” and “pet.” When you want to view only pictures of your dogs, you’d use the “dog” tag to do just that. Likewise, if you want to view only pictures of your cats, you’d use the “cat” tag. If you want to view pictures of both, you could use the “pet” tag (which you’d also use for pictures of your hamsters, fish, lizards, and other pets in your family).
