In comes the opportunity to review iCaughtSanta and I jumped at the chance! I hadn't heard of the site before or else I probably would have used it already. The site is fairly easy to use. You upload a picture of your choosing and then get to add Santa. The site states it has 20 Santa poses but in reality it's a few repeats of the same pose with a different looking Santa. They do have a Hispanic and black Santa as well. I did have a little trouble switching between poses but finally figured it out. You're able to scroll through on the main screen of their program, which worked fine, but then to actually change it on your picture is where I had the issue. They have a button that says "insert this pose". I'm assuming they're meaning the Santa pose you picked as it's right underneath the scroll bar. Every time I clicked it though, nothing would change. The way I was able to get it to work was by clicking the "show all" button to see all of the poses and when I would pick one on there, it would then change on my picture. Hopefully this is just a bug that will be fixed soon.

After you add your Santa, you can make him bigger or smaller, rotate him, or even change his brightness and coloring to match your main picture better. This gives you quite a bit of customization. Then you proceed with your picture, pay for it ($9.99), and then you have free access to it. There's also the option to pay an extra $10 to have access to the other caught characters that the site has which is a great deal if you want to do this again. They have cupid, Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy.
You can save it to your computer and print it at home or send it straight off to Walgreens through their program to have it printed. You also have the option to create mugs, t-shirts, coasters, etc. This is now your order screen which you can come back to at any time. There are also social media buttons plugged into the site so that you can post it to Facebook right away or email it to as many people as you'd like.
Now as a special bonus to YOU, my readers, iCaughtSanta is giving away 5 free photo codes to the first 5 readers who post a comment on this page. Please include your email address and first name so that I can have them e-mail the e-gift certificate to you. For everyone else, if you click the link to iCaughtSanta you will be directed to their contest page, where you can enter to win a free iPad and also have the option of paying only $7.50 for a photo instead of the normal $9.99. You can also purchase gift cards for family members while on the site, if you're interested.

I went to Picmonkey and added in the text to give it that extra touch.
