So your phone is filled with Instagram photos...now what?

As of just a few months ago, Instagram became available for Android...holla!

Now everyone can share the fun! Yay! And I've quickly become a huge Instagrammer...I love taking photos and sharing them with my "followers"...and I'm having so much fun participating in Fat Mum Slim's Photo-A-Day challenges.

my recent photos...(I use SnapWidget to get this collage...)





Recently I found an awesome way to get all of my Instagram photos downloaded to my computer without plugging in my phone! Ummm, where is that cord, anyway???

Here's the site:

INSTAPORT


and it is awesome...

All you do is sign in with your Instagram username, click "export," and download the zip file that contains your photos.

Then you can share those photos on Google+, Facebook, wherever...OR you can do what I do, and print them out!

Here are some of my photos from the June Photo-A-Day...I brought them into Photoshop, resized them to 2"x2", changed the dpi from 72 to 300 (if you are going to print them, MAKE SURE you do this so that your photos look good!), then printed them onto sticker paper (I LOVE doing this...it sure makes adhering them to paper sooo much easier!), and stuck 'em into my Smash Book.


Aren't they awesome? I also printed out the FMS challenge list for June...




Now, I know there are a whole bunch of sites that will do the printing for you...on a number of different media...for example...

* CanvasPop
Bumblejax
Printstagram 
*  Instagoodies
ArtFlakes
Printstagram
PostalPix
Boo Box
Stickygram
TeenyTile
Casetagram
Blurb

BUT this you can do on your own...for FREE! Well, minus the cost of the printer ink and paper...but those are negligible...(smile).

So what do you think? Do you print out your Instagram photos?

  7. such good tips, thanks! pinned it!

    question about snapwidget-- is there a way to choose/remove what pics you want? when i used it, it just took the last ones i had taken. there a way to customize that?

  8. @Jess Thanks so much! As far as snapwidget goes...I don't believe so...it just takes displays the photos as you take them...it will update as soon as you take a photo because it's just following your stream. Sorry!!!
