Best Photo Apps: Foap

Best Photo Apps: Foap

Have you ever fancied making some money from your photography? Submit your finest shots to the attractive Foap website where each is given a flat rate $10 (around £6.50) download fee.

However, Foap takes a 50 per cent cut of this, and to maintain overall content quality you’re forced to rate five photos from other members for each shot that you submit.

Uploading is also restricted to the Foap iPhone app, making it tricky to upload DSLR images.

Price: Free; earn $5 per image

Best Photo Apps: Percolator

Coffee-themed Percolator turns your photos into mosaics of circular bubbles for a beautifully unique stylised pattern effect.

Variable transparency and bubble size makes the effect as extreme as you like. Anything from a subtle bubbly overlay to full-on impressionist hallucination is possible.

Enough other customisation options are available to tweak your look without things getting baffling, and it’s all wrapped up in a slick and simple interface.
