I’ve been absolutely loving a new free app on my iPhone, Instgram, which allows you to treat your photos with a collection of about a dozen one-click effects such as “X-Pro II”, “Lomo-fi”, “Lord Kelvin” and more, then share them on their server—as well as cross-posting to Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and more. The treatments are really well done, the output image looks great, and the app is a pleasure to use.
In fact, I actually made an automatic rolling slideshow on the right of this page (under the Twitter feed) of the images as I post them, I’m enjoying these so much. Sweet!
Recently I tweeted that I couldn’t wait to get a couple hundred of these photos made so I could print a collage, and decided that I needed to test this out with just a few. The image output is only 500 pixels square, so if you want to print at 300 dpi, that’s only 1.67
" square print, which is kinda small. I’ll try at 133 dpi, which I think will be just fine, and will give a 2.25
" square print.
Here’s the test collage.
Ultimately printing one of these wall-size will be very cool indeed!
