I’ve been taking pictures of myself all day long: me and Santa, me in Santa’s hat, Santa in my living room and more! Put the merry back in gentleman and gentlewoman with a cool Christmas photo app. There are a variety of apps and some with similar features, so the only way to get a sense of what works good is to test them out. One challenge is that most of these apps have ads between each click. I thought they were pretty fun, so the ads were worth putting up with for a few shots.
There a several different kinds of holiday photo apps. One, automatically integrates your picture into a Christmas or Holiday scene. This is sort of like an auto-Photoshop. These are usually easy to do, but the final product is a bit hit or miss. Some look really good, but sometimes the blending of your photo and their image looks a little off. If you want to try one of these, I’d recommend Photo Lab.
Created by Vicman LLC, this is a part of a variety of photo editing apps that can be used on Android and iOS as well as your desktop computer. You can choose from a variety of backgrounds, overlays, and even advanced mixes. I made a picture that combined my face with a leopard and a Santa hat. Offensive and yet I can’t look away. Photo Lab has a variety of Holiday and non-Holiday options.
The next kind of photo app is a bit simpler. It’s primarily about adding stickers to photos. These apps offer a variety of Holiday stickers, words, filters and more that you can add over your photos. These are pretty fun to use and it’s easy to adjust sticker size to your photo. They usually come with several free Holiday sticker options and the choice to add on other stickers for a small fee.
In some ways, this is similar to Snapchat filters. You can choose Christmas themes or other themes. Open the camera, open your mouth, and watch the zany stickers appear. This is a lot of fun and would be a fun picture app on Christmas morning.
Christmas Photo Effects Editor (iOS)
Christmas Photo Effects Editor give you the ability to add multiple stickers, words, backgrounds and other variations to your photo. You do have to click through a few ads while using but it is very easy to create hilarious Christmas images.
Merry Christmas Photo Stickers (Android)

Instead of covering your Holiday pix with goofy stickers, you might simply want to add a beautiful frame. These apps make it easy to create memorable Christmas images.
Snapping Santa Apps
There are several apps that allow you to add Santa to any Christmas scene or any other scene for that matter. You can choose between several different Santa poses and you can adjust the size of Santa to your photo. Here are some of the tops Santa apps:

iCaughtSanta (This is a new app with not many ratings, but I tested and really liked the Santa features. There is a free version with a few Santas and paid version with more options.)
