November 18th, 2015 by Christen

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!

Is Instagram And SnapChat Merging To Create A Super PhotoSharing App?

September 1st, 2015 by Tech Staff

Is it us or is Instagram and snapchat starting to look a lot alike these days?  Starting today on Instagram you do a whole lot of sharing like SnapChat and more!

 

 

Instagram and Snapchat super app

 

Starting today on Instagram you can reply with photos in a thread and start a convo with just text. Plus, rather than tag friends in the comments of public feed posts you want them to see, Instagram now has a new Direct share button that lets you send other peoples photos or videos in a private chat.

 

 

The changes could prime Instagram Direct for the rapid-fire back-and-forth photo messaging popular amongst teens that fueled Snapchat’s ascent. It could also give people a way to talks with friend about interesting public posts without their conversation getting lost in the endless reels of comments spurred by celebs and popular users.

“I definitely think it’s an evolution” an Instagram spokesperson says regarding how Direct threads work. Previously, one person would send a photo or video, and recipients could send hearts or leave comments. But if they wanted to send a reaction photo or another image to further the discussion, they had to start a whole new thread. “Now they’re conversations whereas before they were just a moment” she said.

To power quick-draw convos, Direct now features an in-line camera. A quick tap adds a photo to the chat, while a tap-and-hold shoots a video. The design of the button, complete with a red line creeping around the button as you use up seconds of video, is almost identical to Snapchat’s trigger.

Direct messages can also include special hearts and big emoji. You could imagine teens sending a funny photo and then all their friends replying with selfies of them laughing or related emoji.

And if you don’t have an image to share you can now start threads with a text message. You can message anyone. If they follow you, the thread goes right into their inbox, and if they don’t, it stays hidden in a pending cue unless the recipient approves.

 

Now, the Direct button beside ones for likes and comments will pull up a friend selector showing the people and groups you’ve recently Direct messaged. Tap a few and you can quickly send them the post privately. Similar to Twitter’s recently added feature that lets you DM tweets, allows you to backchannel in secret. That way you can snark about your frenemies or elaborate without your convo being fragmented amongst other comments.

People can also share hashtag pages, location pages, and user profiles via Direct. With about 25% of its 300 million-plus user base on its messaging feature, it needs more ways for people to pull content from outside their network into chat threads. Now when you discover something awesome on Instagram, it could entertain your friends too.

Could PHHHOTO Gif Maker App Be The Next Big Thing In Photo Sharing?

July 29th, 2014 by Tech Staff


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?

Instagram Adds 10 New Features, But First, Let Me Take A Selfie

June 3rd, 2014 by Tech Staff

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

 

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.

INSTAGRAM

 


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.

Instagram for iOS version 6.0 is available today in Apple’s App Store, and Instagram for Android version 6.0 is available today on Google Play.

Take Photos? Like Instagram? Check Out These Five Photo Sharing Tricks!

October 19th, 2011 by Christen

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.

“My piggy bank is smarter than Bank of America”

 

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.

I love sharing and checking out creative photos on Instagram — Want to see more Instagram flicks from DivasandDorks? Find us in your Instagram app & we look forward to sharing photos with you soon!
