There’s nothing like hanging out with good friends or family and capturing those priceless moments that’ll last a lifetime. If you’re anything like me, you’re always swiping through party or event photos to share online. Whether it’s selfies, usies or group photos, most people are still stuck sharing photos the archaic, old-fashioned way via text or email.
But what if you could share high quality photos, quickly and without compromising your private contact information? With FotoSwipe, you simply swipe the photo from one device to another to share seamlessly.
Imagine you are out with a group of friends at a party and you’ve taken a dozen photos of the evening. Your friends all want copies, but texting each of them twelve photos would take hours. Sometimes, I’m so engrossed in living in the moment that I forget to immediately share group photos. With FotoSwipe, everyone in your group can get your photos in seconds!
FotoSwipe is a secure, photo sharing app that allows you to share photos or videos between iOS or Android smartphones or tablets by simply “swiping” using your finger from one device to the next. Sharing is easy! Simply place the two phones next to each other and launch FotoSwipe on both. Select the photo/video you want to share and drag it from your screen to the receiver’s screen. The photo will be copied instantly.
FotoSwipe isn’t just the easiest way to instantly share photos and videos with people near you, it’s also a great way to transfer photos too. In addition to sharing photos with friends, I use FotoSwipe to transfer photos between all my handheld devices including my iPad, Amazon Fire tablet and Samsung tablet.
PHHHOTO for iPhone can now turn your selfies and other photos into moving Gifs. Fans already include celebrities like Katy Perry, and Diplo- and has already passed popular apps like YO in the App Store. PHHHOTO is the free camera app that captures life in motion through its exclusive, multi-frame camera. Now anyone can shoot and share images that look and feel alive. The PHHHOTO format consists of a series of frames captured with a single touch.
HYPERHYPER explains, “Until today, cameras had two modes: snap a picture or record a video. Now there is something in between. PHHHOTO makes the most ordinary moments look and feel mesmerizing, instantly and effortlessly. Anyone can do it. Quicker than video, more lifelike than stills.”
If you’ve attended any great parties or social events this year, there’s a good chance you’ve experienced PHHHOTO PRO®, the wildly popular animated photobooth. PHHHOTO PRO® detects your face, shoots several frames, then delivers a sharable, animated selfie to your phone via SMS. PHHHOTO is now bringing this format to the iPhone — and bundling it with sleek community features so you can follow, like, comment and share PHHHOTOS with friends.
At PHHHOTO parties, the app becomes an extension of the photobooth, which has been tapped by some of the world’s most influential brands, like Red Bull and Michael Kors, to capture and distribute PHHHOTOS of fans, socialites and celebrities. The results speak for themselves — a single PHHHOTO party often generates more original social content than some social campaigns lasting several weeks. And with PHHHOTO for iPhone now gathering these PHHHOTOs in one place, people can see and share the party forever.
Are you ready for the next frontier in photo sharing? Have you checked out the new app yet? What do you think?
Hey Selifie lovers! The ever popular photo-sharing app Instagram, announced 10 new editing tools just moments ago for both iOS and Android. In addition to new adjustments like contrast, brightness and saturation, Instagram’s filters have also been tweaked; users can now adjust the filter’s intensity with a slide bar.
Instagram first started utilizing the slide bar in March with the app’s Lux tool, which serves as a fill light of sorts for dark photos. That slide bar is now available on a number of editing features, giving users more control over how dramatic their edits appear.
The full list of editing tools include Adjust (lets you crop and straighten photos simultaneously), brightness, contrast, warmth, saturation, highlights, shadows, vignette, sharpen and filter strength (the border tool is now within the filter strength setting, too).
More Instagram editing tools are on the way, and we’re told they will be added to the app as they are finished. Instagram expects the new editing tools to be available to iOS and Android users throughout the day as the app updates are pushed through to the App Store and the Google Play Store. To learn more about these new tools, check out help.instagram.com.
From a startup to instant billionaires, the good folks at Instagram know a thing or two about photo sharing and with Instagram’s Android downloads already topping 5 million, it’s clear the photo-sharing app is hot (and not going anywhere, anytime soon)!

Everyone loves the photo-sharing app Instagram, but did you know that you can enhance your experience with these photo sharing tricks?
“What kind of edible plant is this? Wait, Is it even edible?”
1. Edit your photos and create cool effects with other iPhone camera apps. My favorites include: Outcolor, ArtCamera, Photogene, Diptic, Pinhole Cam and ColorSplash. If you didn’t realize it, there’s a lot of editing you can do from your iPhone.

2. Caption this. Offer an opportunity for people in your network to write the caption for your photo or photos. Just include a mention in your own caption to encourage the feedback.
“Yes I follow Starbucks. In spirit and in truth.”
3. Follow your favorite brands and organizations. Many times you’ll get cool “behind the scenes” photos and connect with brand managers in a fun environment. You’ll need to search the app for user names to find them. (NOTE: I follow most of the brands on Twitter and was able to locate them from Instragram’s “find friends” feature.)

4. Hashtag it. You might know the hashtag from Twitter and it’s making its way in to other networks. Instragram is no exception. You can add hashtags to your captions and share them on other social networks, like Twitter and Facebook. You can also search for others using the same hashtag. I use this as a way to find other people to follow, especially if the hashtag indicates a shared interest or commonality.
5. Got A Lot of Followers? Give em THANKS! How? Use the Instragram application, Statigram. To log in, enter your Instragram user name and password. It will take a few minutes to pull up your data, but it’s worth the wait. Once your information appears, scroll down to find your top follower information. Select “Snapshot this” and enter your email address.
