Printing Instagram Photos

printing instagram at homeI did it! I figured out what was going wrong and why I couldn’t get my Instagram photos to print correctly at home on my wonderful Cannon Selphy!

I wish I had done this before because I would have saved myself a ton of aggravation!

There are a few things that I have learned about printing on the Cannon Selphy.

The first thing is to have the Bordered option turned on all the time. When the bordered option is not turned on the pictures don’t always print on the paper and usually get cut off.

In order to print an Instagram photo on the Selphy from your iPhone you need to grab the pictures from your Instagram album and send those photos to the Selphy if you want your photo to be printed in Instagram format.

After you tell the Selphy to print you are good to go and you will have a perfectly printed Instagram photo at your home.

I prefer to print my Instagram photos from home as ordering them online tends to be expensive plus I take so many photos it is easier for me to keep up with printing them at home.

How do you print your Instagram photos?

You can download the Cannon app by clicking on the little printer below! It’s a free app


App Tuesday – Instagram

Instagram app reviewToday is Tuesday and it’s that time for a new app review! Today I am going to do a quick review on the Instagram app. Who doesn’t love Instagram? I am going to be quite honest back in July I wasn’t so sure about Instagram but now that I know they are not intending to sell my photos to anyone I have decided to stick with Instagram!

What is Instagram?

Instagram is a social media outlet that lets you connect with other people and share your photos with all your friends! My favorite part of the app is that you can add many different effects to your photos and that you can then print out these great Instagram photos into those lovely square photos that I am obsessed with!

The app itself is very easy to use and the photos that you edit can be automatically saved into your camera roll which you can then print out. There are so many different ways that you can get your photos printed from your phone. Shutterfly offers you the ability to print them straight from your phone and they have the cheapest rate for 4×4 prints. This truly is the easiest way that I have found to order 4×4 prints if you are going to order from a company. You can also print the photos yourself at home. I sometimes print my photos with the Cannon Selphy 900 which is a great photo printer!

Back to Instagram I suggest that you take your photos with your regular camera and then upload the photo to Instagram so that you can choose where you want the photo be cropped. Next you crop your photo pick your effect and add a description and your all done, easy as pie.

Instagram is a great place for you to meet new people and see some really cool pictures. So will give you Instagram a try? If you already have Instagram come and follow me I love to meet new people!




App Tuesday – PhotoMarkr

It’s that time again, Tuesday is here and a new app will be reviewed for you. I teamed up again this week with that great site that I told you about last week Messtaken Identity. If you have an android phone I suggest you hop on over to Messtaken Identity so that you can get her awesome app review that is based on Android. Otherwise you can stay right here and check out my review for the iPhone!

So I know that us scrapbookers like to post our favorite scrapbook layouts or even cards to sites like Flickr and Instagram (yes I use both of these sites and you can follow me at them just by clicking on their names). Well today I am going to review an app today that allows you to watermark your photo right from your phone!!

PhotoMarkr app reviewThis is exciting for me because when I post my layouts or cards or something that I have made I would like people to know that Beth over at Scrapping Wonders made that amazing layout! I am sure when you post your layout somewhere you would like people to know where that layout came from as well whether you have your own scrapbooking site or you don’t that photo is still yours, so let people know that it’s yours!

PhotoMarkr is made by Imanji Studios (the same people who have made temple run, you know that cool game that you play) Anyways let me get back to the app review. PhotoMarkr lets you watermark your photos that are on your phone. You can pick the text that you want to be placed on your photos, the color, the font and the opacity of the font.

Once you have picked your photo and the settings for your watermark your are brought to another screen where you get to adjust how you want your watermark to look on your photo.

Next thing for you to do is hit save and the photo is saved directly to your camera roll. Then you are done and you can go ahead and post your photo to the social media outlets that you prefer.

Here are some photos that I tested out with the PhotoMarkr app these photos are also a sneak  peak of my February Art Journal. I can’t wait to share with you as it looks gorgeous!!!

I used a different opacity on the second photo just to check it out and see how it looked and I really like the option of being able to lighten or darken my watermark. All in all the app is user-friendly, it is made by a trusted company, which is always very important when you are downloading an app, it’s FREE  and I like it! What more do you need? Go ahead and download this app and let people know that you created that awesome masterpiece!

Are you watermarking your photos when you post them to your social media outlets? I would love to know what you are doing in the comments below.
