Just to let you know, that I’m active also in Instagram. I have there slightly different posting style than here in WordPress: more pics and hashtags, less written content or background info. These sharing platforms are complementing each other nicely.
If you like the readers of this blog would check also your Instagram site, please add a link to your Instagram account (like “instagram.com/yourusername”) in the comments. I promise to have a look, and most likely to follow you.
Instagram is also a great sharing platform for quick, playful posts.
Though I tend to keep the comments short, I sometimes I add a more detailed description (the limit for captions on the photo and subsequent comments is ample 2200 characters).
Bug's life. #macro #insect #heteroptera #nature #hirvihaara #mäntsälä The Heteroptera are a group of about 40,000 species of insects in the order Hemiptera. Sometimes called "true bugs", that name more commonly refers to Hemiptera as a whole, and "typical bugs" might be used as a more unequivocal alternative since among the Hemiptera the heteropterans are most consistently and universally termed "bugs". "Heteroptera" is Greek for "different wings": most species have forewings with both membranous and hardened portions (called hemelytra). Source: Wikipedia
Note also that Instagram accepts images which are not square.
Some words about the technology:
I use different cameras (phone, tablet, point-and-shoot, DSLR), editing programs and posting platforms. Some of my pics are hardly touched, some are heavily edited. Some are old, some are posted immediately. I’m using many cloud services to share images between different equipments and programs.
Instagram was launched in October 2010 for sharing iPhone/iPad photos only. Early 2012 also official Android app was launched. Third party apps are available for Windows Phones also. As the service was initially created for mobile phone (smartphone) users only, the computer apps are still lacking some of the features of the phone apps.
My Instagram apps are:
- mobile phone (Windows): third party 6tag
- tablet (iOS): native Instagram
- computer (OS X): third party Gramblr
Happy photo sharing!
