Step 7: Play around with the editor tool. There are a ton of of ways you can get really creative with your photos! NOTE: When you see a crown next to the one of the features you would like to use – that crown symbolizes that in order to use that feature you have to upgrade your account. I upgraded my account – and it was worth it. At the time of writing this, it is $33 a year or $4.99 a month to upgrade to get the premium features.
