If you aren’t on Instagram, you probably live under a rock. Not only does it make your smartphone’s pictures look awesome and all vintage-y, you can share them with your friends and vice versa. I don’t know about you but the only reason I get on Facebook anymore is to see my friend’s and family’s pictures. I know, I’m creepy like that. So Instagram just narrows down the search for me! But if you are looking for more things to do with your Instagram pictures, here are the top 5 apps you can download to improve your pics or even get them off of your phone and into the real world.
My favorite one by far. PostalPix allows you to order your pics in any size you want. This is great for Instagram photos because, as you all know, these pictures don’t come in a standard 4 x 6 size. So you can order prints of your pic in 2 x 2’s or even an 8 x 10. It’s super cheap to order your photos, too! They will be mailed to you within a few days. This is great because you can then put your pictures on your mantle instead of keeping them locked away on your Instagram feed.
This app is really fun because you can literally transform your Instagram picture into a postcard. Simply upload a picture, crop it down to the right size, and then type in a short message to the person you are sending it to. You can even sign the postcard with your finger to make it look more realistic! This is great for vacations when you want to send a postcard to Mom, but you forgot to buy one at the gift shop.
If you haven’t heard of Pic Stitch by now, you really are living under a rock! This app gives you access to a collage of your photos. Choose from different templates to input your Instagram photos. You can even alter the size of the border or change the template to how you want it. This is fun to do when you have a ton of pictures you want to share, but you don’t want to clog up everyone’s feed. Your Instagram followers will really appreciate you using this app.
If you want to print your pictures off in the form of a canvas, this app is where you should start! With InstaCanvas, you can easily upload your photo and choose the canvas size you want. Then, have it delivered right to your doorstep! Hang up your Instagram photos all over your home with the help of this awesome app.
This one is so cool! You can choose a bunch of your Instagram photos to transform them into little magnets for your fridge! How awesome is that? Not only is it super cute for your fridge, it would make for a great stocking stuffer or present for your friend’s birthday. It’s personable and it doesn’t cost a fortune. It’s a win-win!
