Instagram is a fantastic visual social sharing photo site for businesses and for pleasure.
Here is what we did last night:
It’s a step - by step process:
1. Took the picture
2. Cropped it - I used a paid app called Photogene (2) (You do not have to pay for any apps if you do not want to) - search the App store I think Photogene 4 is available for purchase. (It's a brilliant tool for cropping, blurring, rotating, and editing)
3. I decided to display the full size of the photo so used InstaSize to do so (it is a free app so please be mindful of advertising) - https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/instasize-post-entire-photos/id576649830?mt=8
4. We chose the Lo-Fi filter in the tools section to bring bring some saturated colours and shadows to the photo
5.We added a description - Loving these (but I could have said Training at the library, or reading these as well)
6. We added several hashtags #childrensboo usingks #instabook #booksofinstagram #catbook #librarybook (I advise using ONLY 1-5 hashtags per picture and to check hashtags first (on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Google and by using tagboard.com)
7. Then we posted it!
