How to delete your Instagram account

Deleting Instagram

A few days ago, I decided that I was going to get rid of my Instagram account, and that’s what I did. I felt that it was just another app that served as a distraction to my daily workflow, so it had to go. Even though I had over 2,000 followers, I was ready to make this change.

Have you ever considered deleting your account? Although deleting an IG account is easy, it’s not as straightforward as just opening the app, going to your account details, and tapping delete. In this post, I’ll show you how.... Read the rest of this post here

How to download Instagram photos or videos to iPhone

Instagrab icon

Instagram has a fantastic community of photographers, with some of them more gifted than others. Every once in a while, I’ll see a photo or video on Instagram that I want to save to my iPhone for later viewing, or simply because I find it interesting.

The problem is Instagram doesn’t let you save photos or videos from within the app. I’m not completely sure why this isn’t an option, but I’d argue that copyright laws may have something to do with that, along with the fact that Instagram wants you to use the app rather than download photos directly to your iPhone.

With that said, there are of course ways you can download Instagram videos or photos to your iPhone. While using jailbreak tweaks is an option, we’ll focus on App Store apps that allow you to save content from Instagram to your iPhone.... Read the rest of this post here

Tinder lets you judge a person’s Instagram skills before swiping right

If stellar smartphone photo skills are something you look for in a potential significant other, Tinder's redesigned profiles are ready lend a hand. The dating app now pipes in a collection of your Instagram snapshots right on that profile page -- so there's no longer a need to include that username in your profile details. Tinder only displays the last 34 photos, but if someone just can't get enough of your brunch and puppy pics, they can venture out to the app for a look at the full library. The update also shows Common Connections when you're browsing and a full list of Facebook interests, highlighting any matches. If you haven't been alerted to the new version just yet, it's available on both iOS and Android now.

Instagram announces new ‘Fade’ and ‘Color’ tools


Instagram on Tuesday announced that it would be adding two new options to the suite of tools in its photo editing app. Those tools are ‘Fade’ and ‘Color,’ and they will allow users to further tweak the appearance of their photos before sharing them on the social network.

More specifically, Color will bring about the ability to tint the highlights or shadows within photos with choices of yellow, orange, red, pink, purple, blue, cyan and green. Fade, on the other hand, will enable users to bring a quiet tone to their photos by softening colors.... Read the rest of this post here

Post to Instagram directly from your Mac with Uploader for Instagram

Uploader for Instagram Header

Most people’s biggest gripe with the photo sharing site Instagram is that they can’t upload photos directly from their Macs. There are a few workarounds for this, but most of them are intrusive, labor intensive, and far from user friendly. The aptly titled Uploader for Instagram seeks to simplify this process so that anyone can easily post from whatever device they choose.... Read the rest of this post here

FINALLY: Spotless is a new iPhone app that will automatically delete troll comments on Instagram

Instagram Spam Comments

If there is one thing that rings true on every corner of the Internet, it's this: where there is a comments section, there will be trolls. Some people seemingly have nothing better to do than to sit around and post malicious and inflammatory comments all day, and they tend to ruin any chances of people having an intelligent conversation.

Of course, it's not just blogs and news sites that have to worry about trolls, and Instagram users are all too familiar with that fact. But now, there may finally be an app that can rid your Instagram photo feed of any and all traces of those annoying troll comments and spam.

Instagram’s carousel ads let brands post multiple photos at once

If you're looking to post multiple photos to Instagram at once, you have to employ another app to create a grid of snapshots. Well, that's about to change... for brands. The filter-driven app announced today that "carousel ads" will soon appear in your feed, allowing companies to post multiple images with "more flexibility" in the storytelling. When you encounter one of the new adverts, swiping left will reveal additional images, linking out to the appropriate website for further investigation. Underneath the post, dots will show your which photo you're viewing, and that handy link comes in the form of a "learn more" button. Of course, advertisers can also leverage the app's video abilities to drive the intended message home. Use of the new ad format will be limited at first, as Instagram plans to make some tweaks once they go live in the "coming weeks."
