Instagram and Photo Sharing

Without a doubt that we live in the era of photo sharing. Instagram is the the most popular photo sharing app in the world. I’ve gathered here the other most popular apps that, in addition to Instagram can help make your photos stand out in the feeds of your followers so you get the best interaction.

VSCOcam

By far the best photo editing app I’ve ever used on iPhone, the editing capabilities and filters are top notch and give nostalgic effects the closest to film. It is also supported by a huge fan base who share their images on Instagram using the #VSCOcam hashtag . VSCOcam also has its own platform for photo sharing but it is very different to Instagram. On this platform you simply share your images. There is no interaction. The images are just there for people to look at and appreciate the art.

Photoshop express (PS Express)

The most popular photo editing application on smartphones, and very useful for minor adjustments and tweaks to your images. Photoshop express supports cropping, flipping and blemish removal, red eye detect and many other image processing options.

Slow Shutter

A great app if you want to do long exposures with your smartphone. It is also useful for motion blur, light trails and many other effects that cannot be obtained by your smart phone without this app. Check it out!

Diptic

Do you fancy adding two images or even more into one Instagram post? Look no further. Diptic has many choices to add up to nine images per post.

#NoCrop

Sometimes you take a shot that’s too good to be cropped into Instagram size,. This app helps you fit the entire image into an Instagram post without having to crop it. However keep in mind that it will make the image smaller and the details will be harder to see.

Typic

A beautiful app to add captions on the image you want to share using very beautiful typographic fonts.

Tips on photosharing

  • Always use the appropriate #hashtags that makes the photo relevant
  • Try to develop a consistent style and timing, to build expectations amongst your audience and encourage the interaction that you want
  • Avoid repetition – this is especially important if you are addicted to selfies.
  • Keep shooting, and sharing!
