Tip of the Day: 5 Instagram Tips and Tricks You May Not Know

image

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in thinking we know everything there is to know about social media that we forget it’s always evolving. If you’re like me, chances are you often don’t read about the new features added to your updated app or even bother to ask your friends about the tips they’ve discovered themselves. Here are a few tips and tricks that you may not already know about!



Tip of the Day: How to Produce Great Outdoor Photos With Your iPhone

image

Your iPhone is a great tool to catalog your outdoor explorations. For an example, check out the image of Longs Peak that I took with my iPhone in Rocky Mountain National Park. Until I acquired a Nikon camera a few weeks ago, I relied solely on my iPhone for outdoor photography. I purchased the 32GB model of the 5s for the extra photo storage. I am no professional photographer, but I travel for work or play about once a month so you can imagine how many photos I have amassed.

Here is some insight into the best apps and tools to use for your adventures:

With the introduction of the iPhone 5s, Apple brought two new features to the device's camera: Slow Mo and Burst Mode.

But sharing Slow Mo vids is more difficult than it needs to be, especially on a service like Instagram. Luckily, we have a simple way to do it.

Let’s face it, we all want followers. And in today’s Instagram-world, getting followers requires more than just posting a brilliant photo… unless you’re a super-model or one of those kids from The Hunger Games. In fact, you might find yourself deploying a multi-level marketing campaign in order to get more eyes on your Instagram feed, where that oh-so-gloomy blue button urges visitors to “follow.”

Well, if you want that button to turn gamma-ray green, you may want to give TRYPTpic ($0.99) a try. TRYPTpic allows you to create a series of related panels out of a single image, and post them into your feed so they appear as a singular image. Crazy, right?! I know.

Here are two shots of my feed, pre- and post-TRYPTpic. I know what you’re thinking… I’m turnin’ that blue into green!!

Does Instagram have the right to sell your photos?

Well, I wouldn’t have wanted to be on the Instagram legal team last month; they must have gone from sipping Dom Pérignonand playing Monoploy with real money to frantically trying to dig themselves out of the hole that they created when the blogosphere was ignited with rumours that the photo sharing network could now sell its users pictures. But do they actually have the right to do this, or is it all a bit of a storm in a teacup?

Let’s take a little look at the single sentence that was added to the Instagram term’s of service that sparked off this furore:

“You agree that a business may pay Instagram to display your photos in connection with paid or sponsored content or promotions without any compensation to you.”


Your iPhone Camera: Helping You Find Your Car and Other Cool Stuff

How often do you use your iPhone’s camera feature?

Do you save it for just taking pictures of your friends and family and maybe the occasional jackwagon parking job (and then running it through FAIL Maker to make it that much funnier), or do you use it for nontraditional purposes?

I’ve found ways to use my phone’s camera that help make life a little bit easier.

For example, have you ever thought to use your phone to take a picture of the lot number you’re parked in so you don’t lose your car every time you go to the mall?
