Digital Diva: The Instagram photo sharing app and community
I love photography, and while I can’t claim to be a good photographer, having a camera with me every day in my iPhone has definitely increased the number of photos I take each day. To share my photos, I often upload them into the Instagram app.
What I like about Instagram is how it makes my photos look great with a variety of filters. What I like even more is the wonderful community of people on Instagram – the Instagrammers – who share photos from the moments of their lives with one another. Storytelling through photographs is incredibly powerful, and Instagram makes it easy.
What I also love about Instagram is how they’ve allowed so many other companies to leverage the images you upload to make things. Here’s a quick list of sites where you can turn your Instagram pics into products and gifts:
1. InstaThis – prints your Instagram photos on acrylic or wood for beautiful room decor.
2. Prinstagram – Use this service for calendars, Memory Boxes, Squares, and Lil’ Stickers.
4. Calendagram – Easily put together a wall calendar via your iPhone with this iOS app.
6. Stitchtagram – Design your own bag (tote, coin purse, clutch) or pillow with your Instagram pics, made by hand.
