Sharing your photos with friends and family isn’t merely a great way to relive past memories, it’s also an excellent way to create new ones. Instagram – a simple and easy-to-use Android app available for free from Google Play – lets you share your edited photos with friends and family in a snap. It’s indeed a beautiful way of sharing your world with those you love and care for.
Instagram – Share Your World
Instagram lets you choose from a great selection of filtered effects to add a completely new touch to the photos you take using your camera on your Android smartphone. You can use these filtered effects to make photos of even the most mundane moments very special for you and those you love and care for – and getting a chuckle or two out of them is a bonus. The app offers a wide selection of custom designed filters and borders to choose from. And the best thing about them is that they are totally free.
Common effects offered by the app include: X-Pro II (gives warm, saturated tones to your photos) Earlybird (fades and blurs the colours in your photos), Lomo-fi (gives a dreamy tone to your photos), Sutro (adds a sepia-like effect), Valencia (gives your photos true-to-life contrast), Inkwell (makes your photos black-and-white), Walden (makes your photos appear washed-out), Hefe (makes your photos appear fuzzy), Nashville (sharpens the images), 1977 (adds a ’70s flair to your photos),etc.
Front-facing and Rear-facing Camera Support
The app supports both front-facing and rear-facing cameras. You can use either one of the cameras on your smartphone to take photos for sharing with your family and friends. That means you won’t have to find someone willing to take your photo to be able to share your photos – you can easily do so by using the front-facing camera on your Android smartphone.
Interact with Family and Friends
Share Your Photos on All Major Social Networking Sites
You can share your edited photos on all major social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Foursquare. Flickr will soon join the list of available sites.
Make Your Photos Full of Colour and Vibrance
You can use the app to make your photos more vibrant and colourful and bring out the detail in them. The app also offers Linear and Radial Tilt-Shift blur effects to add extra depth of field.
Give and Receive Likes
There is another way of letting your family and friends know that you like their photos. It’s simple and easy – all you have to do is give their photos a Like.
