Instructions from VIMAGE= explained much clearer  than I ever could!

Using VIMAGE is easy, intuitive and fun.
1. Open VIMAGE and press the ‘+’ button to take a photo or choose one from your gallery. Feel free to edit your photo before you add an effect to it.
2. Choose an effect you like and that you think suits your picture. We currently have over 100 built-in effects, and we continuously add new ones to the app as we come up with them.
3. Place the effect you choose on your photo. Adjust it as you like – you can shrink or enlarge it, rotate it, change its color, opacity and more.
4. Save your vimage, and you’re good to go. Share it on Instagram or any other social media with just a touch of a button, and let your creativity get all the recognition it deserves.
