Hanging out with the cool kids isn’t as cool as you may think

A post shared by DR. SHAQUILLE O’NEAL Ed.D. (@shaq) on

Online everyone wants to hangout with the cool kids, but does it really work?  Take the latest Instagram by Shaq or should I say DR. SHAQUILLE O’NEAL Ed.D. Shaq has over 5 million followers and his latest post about his new F650 has over 400K views and 1000+ comments. Who knows if this a paid or a friendly node to his local Ford dealer but I bet Wade from @wadefordatlanta was hoping to get a bit of more traction from his superstar customers post, looks like he even open an account just for it.

Top 10 Best iPhone Photo Apps for Instagram

I get asked a lot what are the best iPhone photo Apps I use to edit my Instagram shots, so I thought I’d put together a list of the top 10 best iPhone photo Apps that that I use all the time. I find most people that ask me this question expect a simple single App answer, but thats just not the case. I often use two, three or even four different Apps depending on the shot and effects I want to achieve. As soon as I start describing this process I see most people eyes glaze over and they start thinking this is going to be way too hard and too complicate, but this couldn’t be further from the truth.

The fact of the matter is that this isn’t the case at all as most Apps are good at doing just a couple of things; either cropping for Instagram, adjusting colours or stitching together a series of pics to make a panorama just to name a few.  So once you understand what each App does and how to use, it it’s actually quiet quick and easy to obtain the desired photo effect for your next Instagram master piece.

 My Top 10 iPhone Photo Apps

Listed below are my top 10 Photo apps that I use to edit my pictures before posting to Instagram, in no particular order.  As mentioned I often use a number of Apps in conjunction.

Camera+ Photo App iconCamera+

Camera+ is a great all round  iPhone photo App and is one of the best selling of all time. Camera+ is a great place to start as a beginner in mobile photography as it does a good job of everything. It’s a good Camera replacement app (although I never use it myself ) and its really fast and easy to edit your pictures with some awesome effects. To get started a few nice combination effects that will impress all your friends are  set Scenes to Clarity and FX Effect to Vibrant, then adjust the vibrancy using the slider to get your desired effect.

The picture below was edited with Camera+ using Clarity and So Emo combination.
