Powerful Tools for Instagram

Pixlr

Pixlr is an app that you can find on Instagram and that will allow you to apply a large selection of
effects not available through Instagram alone.

You’ll gain many more filters, as well as settings that
let you change things such as contrast, color temperature and more.

More importantly, Pixlr will let you add text to your images and also create beautiful collages
featuring multiple pictures.

Instagram Widget by WPZoom

Instagram Widget by WPZoom is a Widget for WordPress sites that will let you embed a feed of your
Instagram pictures right into your sidebar.

This way, people who visit your site will see that you have an active Instagram account and will be

able to see the kinds of inspiring images that you post. If
they like what they see, then chances are that they will click on the images and follow you on
Instagram.

What’s more, is that this will help to add more content to your websites, making sure
that it always looks active and that there is always new content there for people to check out.

IFTTT

IFTTT stands for ‘If This, Then That’ and can be found at http://www.ifttt.com. This is a tool that
allows you to set up relationships between multiple different social accounts.

For example then, this will let you post your Instagram pictures directly to Twitter. Now, this is
something that Instagram already lets you do. When you use IFTTT though, the pictures can be set
to appear not as links but as native images sot that your Twitter followers can see them in their
homefeeds.

What’s more, is that and there are countless other things you can do with this too. For example, why
not set up an interaction so that copies of all your Instagram pictures get saved to a Dropbox folder,
thereby ensuring that you always have backups?

Photoshop/Gimp

While Instagram is primarily an app for your phone, that doesn’t mean that all your pictures need to
be taken with a phone camera! Invest in a good camera and you can first edit pictures on the
computer before uploading them via your phone.

That means you can now use professional editing software such as Photoshop to apply airbrushing
or to add other enhancements. If you don’t want to shell out for Photoshop though, why not try
using Gimp? This is a piece of free software with almost all the same features as Photoshop!

Dropbox

For passing photos to your phone from your computer, use Dropbox. That way, you simply need to
save them in the right folder and they will be readily available on your phone to upload at your
leisure.
