Stories or Picture Status are a feature that first came in the app called snapchat and was then adapted by apps such as Instagram, Whatsapp, Messenger etc. Previously a WhatsApp status meant just a text status that everyone could read. Things have changed. Now the messaging application has revamped their whole UI and has replaced the text status with a WhatsApp image status. These are just like Instagram stories and disappear after 24 hours. One can post images, videos and gifs and the privacy can be set so that only the persons in your contact list can view these. Personally speaking, the new update has significantly increased the amount of time one spends on the app.
A good amount of Whatsapp status these days are picture quotes. These are basically an image having a quote with a beautiful background. The quote could be self-made or by some famous personality. Creating and uploading such quotes has become a new trend these days. If your work is creative enough, it might even get viral.
Ever wondered how to make these kinds of images? Professionals such as facebook pages use photoshop or other image editing tools, but for the common people, there are separate apps just for this purpose. In these apps, one can enter your quote, change the font, choose different backgrounds and publish them online.
There are dozens of such apps available for android in the Google Play Store and most of them have very little features while some of them are great. The intention of this post is to name some of the Best apps to create picture quotes for Whatsapp status.
Best Android Apps to create picture quotes
I will always recommend using YourQuote to anyone who asks me which app to use for creating picture quotes. They have a good library of suitable images and offers a good amount of customizations. You can choose to show or not show your name along with the quote. The fonts can be changed and the fonts adjusted.
What makes me love YourQuote as an app to create picture quotes is the fact that they have an active community with a good number of members and it has evolved as a social medium. Your quotes will also get indexed in google and people can find your quotes if they search for it with your name.
Do try this app first. It is free on the Google Play Store.
PicLab – Photo Editor
PicLab is a recent addition to this list. This app is more useful when you decide to use your images as the background. It is actually a photo editor tool but serves our purpose really well. You can add dozens of shapes. textures, patterns, light FX, drop shadows, stickers, and more overlays to your images. It has a college tool and about 20 photo filters to choose from. It has all the features such as adjusting the saturation level, brightness that you would find in any decent photo editor app.
The images you create can easily be shared across the social media. The app is free to download from both the Google Play Store and the Apple iTunes. It contains advertisements and in-app purchases.
