Instagram

One iPhone photo app that I love lately is Instagram. Have I mentioned it already? I can't remember! Just thought I'd tell you about it in case you have an iPhone and didn't already know of it. It's intended for easy sharing, I think, but I really like it for the filters. I usually just save the images to my camera roll rather than sharing the images via one of the sharing options like facebook. They've added a tilt shift option too, which is really nice. Here are a few pictures I took this week with Instagram using tilt shift and then another filter. If I were in the market for a basic, nice point and shoot camera, I think I'd just get an iPhone! There are so many great photo apps. You can also send someone a Postagram now, a real postcard using one of your Instagram images. For .99 you choose the image, type the postcard, add the address, and sent it on its way all via the app. I'll have to try it out.

I'd love to follow you on Instagram. What is your name there?

Hi Dottie, I have my privacy settings on because I don't want everyone in the world to see all my instagram pics! A lot of them are me just being silly :) But any decent ones that I like a lot, I usually post anyway, under the label "iphone pics" on my blog.
