Will These Be My Last Instagram Pictures?

by Dagmar Bleasdale on December 27, 2012

Looks like I have to find a different photo app — Instagram’s new policy changes don’t sit well with me, plus it’s not working correctly since I downloaded the new version.

I loved Instagram and wrote a post about how excited I was about finding the perfect combination of Instagram filters, and I’m not a fan of having to learn to use another app, but I’ll have to look into alternatives.

Do you have a suggestion? I’ve read about Hipster, the Flikr app… Maybe it’s time to use the Picfx app I payed for and liked a while ago.

This was our week in Instagram pictures:

giant cookie for first grade's New Year's celebration

German Christmas books and chocolate in paper sled

Do you have any tips for me regarding a different photo app? I want to find one that takes square pictures, has filters, and an easy way to share my pictures on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr.

There are lots of different photo editing apps out there like Camera+ and BeFunkyPro, and you can crop to a square. They are not as good as Instagram I find. Still have some good features though. Thanks for linking up for Flash Blog Friday :-)

They got rid of some of the language and changed the other language that everyone was complaining about. I threatened to leave too but ultimately decided to stay since they fixed the “problem”.

I’m not a huge user of Instagram but it does make it so easy to take photos, filter them and then share them wherever you want. I have no suggestions for an alternative but I think you will be one of many looking for a similar photo-sharing social media app! BTW, great photos!

I wish I had an answer for you on this one. Our Philly Social Media Moms group has been discussing this over the past week. Hope you find a good app and let us all know what it is!
