With the Instagram mobile app and photo-sharing service, you can use your Android or iOS device to snap a photo, apply creative filter effects, and then share it with millions of Instagram users—and on Facebook and Twitter, too. In this course, Justin Seeley details the ins and outs of the Instagram app and sharing service. The course contains tips on shooting photos using the Instagram app and also describes how to edit and enhance photos taken with Instagram or imported from another app.
Justin then details the process of posting photos to Instagram and adding descriptive tags, captions, and location information. The final chapter offers insights on building a community of followers and on enhancing your Instagram experience with additional apps and services.
Instagram is quite a powerful photo editor, but there're still some things that it just can't do. And therefore, you're going to need some more apps to help you get the exact shot that you're looking for. Many times we want to capture more of the dynamic range in a shot, but unfortunately our camera simply can't do that without a little help. The process of merging two exposures together is known as HDR photography. And the app that does that best is something called Pro HDR. This app allows you to take and combine an over-exposed and an under-exposed photo in order to capture more of the dynamic range in your shots.
The processing can be a bit slow, but overall this app is pretty great. It's available for a $1.99 in the App Store. Another essential app would have to be Camera Plus. This one most advanced camera apps in the App Store and gives you the ability to do all kinds of things. Combine that with its wide range of filters and effects and this is a must-have for any Instagrammer. It's available for $0.99. So that's a great deal for what you get from this app. Third on the list is an app from the Visual Supply Company called the VSCO Cam.
This is really a simple application that allows you to add unique qualities to your photos like black-and-white treatments, grain, and even fill lighting if necessary. The interface is also really fun and easy-to-use. I highly recommend it. It's also $0.99 in the iOS app store. No matter what you choose to shoot your photos with, all of these apps offer an extensive amount of customization and options that simply aren't found in Instagram itself. So this will allow you to be more creative and hopefully draw more attention to your Instagram shots as well.
