Instagram 101...photo apps!!!

I am loving how the teachers have been sharing so many photos on Instagram lately, especially on Tuesdays using #teachertalktuesday to categorize all of our photos together!  If you want a short overview on the Instagram basics (including what a hashtag is) you can check out my previous post HERE.

Today I want to share some apps that I use, or know of, that you can use to edit your photos, add words, or change the filter.  Before I even used Instagram, I used some of these apps for my blog, so maybe these can be helpful!


Here is my favorite app: Diptic
Cost: $1
What can it do?: You can do a collage of pictures all in one frame.  If you want to share several pictures, but don't want to post them all, you can organize and place them into the little boxes.  You can also write text onto the picture too!


Here is an example of me using Diptic on one of my photos:
I wanted to share three images from my Ocean Unit and I was able to write my blog name on the picture.



InstaCollage is a free version of the app I showed you above. :)



App: A Beautiful Mess
Cost: $1
What can it do?:  You can choose cute fonts and shapes to write on the photos, add boarders, edit the picture, and so much more!



The most necessary app: Whitagram
Cost: I think it was $1
What can it do?:  When your photos are too big for the Instagram screen, it makes them fit!  I use this for my bulletin board pictures!!!


Here is me using Whitagram to fit this cute flower craftiftivity from Kindergarten Smiles.



App: BorderGram
Cost: Free
What can it do?: It gives you cute borders for your pictures!


I would love for you to share with me some of your favorite apps that you use for photos!  Leave me a comment if you have any good ones, so I can check them out!  

And remember....Tomorrow is Teacher Talk Tuesday, hosted by myself and What The Teacher Wants!  Post a picture of anything "teachery" and use #teachertalktuesday.


See you tomorrow!
