Instagram Photos


One of the things that I love about my iPhone (yes, I said "love" and "iPhone" in the same sentence, get over it!) is that I can combine my photography with my tweeting. Okay, my phone is never going to replace my Nikon, but depending on what I'm shooting, it's not a bad instamatic-type camera.

One of the apps that I've added to my phone is Instagram, with which I can quickly shoot a picture, apply a number of cool filters to it (or not), write a caption, add a location, and send it out through Twitter, Facebook, or other electronic means, including by e-mail.

I wish there were a way to instantly post these photos to my blog. Last week, I showed you one of these pictures. But to do that involved me e-mailing the picture to myself, saving the photo, and then creating a post. If anyone knows of a way that I can access my blog directly through Instagram, please let me know.

So today, because I didn't have much to say, I present you with a couple of photos that I shot with my iPhone and posted on Twitter, using Instagram. And by e-mailing it and all that stuff.

Get used to seeing more of these photos down the road.

  1. I love Instagram too! It's the perfect app for a photo/social media junkie like me. The filters are fun, and you can actually get some really amazing shots. I wish they'd update it with a faster shutter speed, but other than that I have no complaints.

    I do use Camera+ as my 'real' camera app on iPhone, but I love how Instagram gives you the option to import photos from your camera roll. Win!

  2. Have you tried http://web.stagram.com? They will publish the direct link to the picture (if you click on the T|M|L beside each pic.

    Oh wait! I also just tried the web link from one of my IG pics - http://instagr.am/p/HqMGu/and if you right click on it you can copy the URL, http://images.instagram.com/media/2011/07/14/6275008a4e6f4ce0829cbb0312553ffd_7.jpg and blogspot should be able embed that.

    Who are you on IG?
