Facebook Camera App, Their Own Instagram?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 12:00 AM

"Facebook today dropped a new photo-sharing app for the iPhone and iPod Touch called Facebook Camera. And it looks pretty familiar!"

A very similar app to Instagram, but the difference here is it uploads directly to Facebook instead of to a separate account. Makes me wonder just how long Instagram will last, but it certainly shows why Facebook decided to buy Instagram...they needed to get rid of the competition! I had trouble finding it when I was searching on the iTunes Store for some reason. So if you are having the same problem, here is the link.

Facebook Buys Instagram

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 11:27 AM

"Facebook is not waiting for its initial public offering to make its first big purchase."

And that first big purchase is Instagram, for $1 billion in cash and stock according to a Facebook post by Zuckerberg. He says he is going to keep it separate from Facebook. Some, like Ben Brooks, aren't too sure about it and are using the "delete my account" option to get out while they can. Gizmodo has a post up now too on how to export all of your photos "before Facebook ruins everything." Me? I don't use it too often, but I'm more of the wait and see approach. What are your thoughts?

Turn Your Instagram Collection Into a Poster

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 01:00 AM

"Enjoy uploading pictures to the Internet via Instagram? Now you can turn your collection into a poster."

Sounds pretty easy too, since all you have to do is select the ones you want and the online retailer Firebox will build you a poster from the selections. The width is set at 24 inches, but you can go as long as 5 feet. Another option listed is Printstagr.am, but with them you can also get physical photos printed along with stickers and minibooks.

Make a Story Board From Instagram Photos

"What app is it that I see people use with Instagram to make a collage/storyboard of more than one photo?"

Well, that app, and a universal one at that, is called Diptic, available now in the iTunes store for $0.99 USD [affiliate link]. Kind of cool app that you can use to combine photos from Instagram into a collage as pictured above.

Make a Canvass Painting From Instagram With CanvassPop

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 03:00 AM

"Over 10 million people have created artful iPhonography with Instagram, but they've never seen their masterpieces any bigger than a Postagram postcard."

Pretty slick, using your Instagram account coupled with the CanvassPop website, you can make a 20 x 20 canvass painting out of your photos. And now they have a deal that will save you almost $50.00 USD. Normally $79.00 USD, you can now get it done for $29.95 USD. My problem is I don't use Instagram all that much but I may start practicing, these would make great Christmas gifts if you can get them on time.

A Custom Case From Your Instagram Photos

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 01:00 AM

http://mashable.com/2011/10/20/inst...able+(Mashable)

"From photo books to iPad screensavers, we've seen some great uses of Instagram's API. The latest of these is Casetagram, which lets you create an iPhone case using photos you've uploaded to Instagram."

If you already use Instagram, head on over to Castagram and you can make yourself a custom case. If you are like me, then you best get an Instagram account and start taking photos! Very cool, and a great gift idea.

Save Your Instagram Photos to Dropbox With Instadrop

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 01:00 AM

http://gizmodo.com/5821784/instadro...to-your-dropbox

"One of the great things about Instagram? It autosaves your Instagram photos to the cloud. The bad thing? They're only saved to Instagram."

Not now, since you can go to Instadrop and link your Instagram account, then it will save directly to your Dropbox account. Nifty! I just did it and it took all of a minute.
