How to make a picture round on the iPhone

Round PhotoWant to make a photo button and want to choose what part of the picture is in the button? We have found a free iPhone app that can help. This app will enable you to crop your photo into a the correct size circle to be made into either a 1 1/4", 2 1/4" or 3" button. You can create a perfectly round photo, adjust its borders, and add effects or filters.

I'm not a huge fan of the text editing as you have to add and edit the text before cropping your circle. But if all you want is a photo button, this app works well.

6. If you want, you can also edit the photo by using different filters, effects, text, etc.

8. Once you have the image laid out to your liking, change the border to "0" or swipe all the way left to remove it. This will prevent the border from printing on the finished output.

9. You can now either print the photo directly to your printer if able. If not, email the photo to yourself. Take the file and paste onto a WORD document and print that document. Note: Opening the file in Paint or another graphics viewing program changed the image size, therefore copying & pasting in a Word document kept correct image size.
