‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew – Creating Ethereal Nostalgic looks with Formulas – Photo Lab Effects and Custom Frames App

It’s such a pleasure to be invited by Joanne Carter to share my mobile phone video tutorials in the new TheAppWhisperer section, How I Did It!™ with Rad Drew. Thank you for this opportunity, Joanne!

Today I want to introduce the app, Formulas – Photo Lab Effects and Custom Frames (here after referred to as ‘Formulas’ in this article), by the developer Samar Azzam.  Formulas is a companion app to the powerful layers app, Stackables, (which I’ll cover in a future tutorial). 

Formulas features 37 formulas created by mobile photographers from around the world using the companion app, Stackables. In addition to these featured Formulas, when you create your own formulas using Stackables, these formulas become accessible in your Formulas app!
