Are you sick and tired of sharing photos in the same old way? Instagram offers some pretty cool filters for making your photos pop, and there are plenty of iPhone applications that allow you to make your photos look better and more interesting. That being said, in the end you are still just sharing a photo, and no matter how many little tweaks you make to it, it’s still just a photo. If you are looking for something that lets you do more, Photogram is the app for you.
With Photogram, you create cool postcard-like images to send to friends. You can include multiple images in one Photogram, so you can use it to tell a story to your friends and loved ones. You can take a group of photos, and put them together with a stylish theme and create something that is actually worth sharing with people on social media and through email. It’s a free Photogram app, and it is definitely worth installing on your iPhone if you are looking to share something less generic.
Using the App
The Photogram app comes with a brief explanation of what it does that will help you get started. It doesn’t really tell you how to do things within the app, but it at least gives you an idea of what the app can actually accomplish for you.
After the first screen, the app will have you create an account. This only takes a couple of seconds, so don’t fret. All you will need is a name, email and password, and you will be ready to start creating cool photos to share with friends and loved ones. After that, you are given the option to create a profile picture to go with your profile within the app.
Once you finish all that, it’s time to create some cool Photograms to share with friends. The first step is to choose photos to be included. You can choose up to four photos for your Photogram, and each one can be scaled to fit properly within the box.
After you finish adding the photos, you are given the option to include a text message with your Photogram. You can type anything you want to let the people you share with know what’s going on in the Photogram.
The next step is choosing a theme. The app comes with a few themes for free, and you can get more from the Theme Store on the bottom left of the screen. These additional themes require an in-app purchase, so it’s up to you to decide if they are something you are willing to spend your hard-earned money on.
Once you select a theme, the last step is to decide who gets to see your beautiful Photogram. You can send it selected email addresses if you want to keep it for a few sets of eyes only. If you prefer to share it with the world, you can send it over and Facebook and Twitter and let everyone get a glimpse of your creation.
Of course, you are going to want to see what you have made before you send it. To see a preview, click the magnifying glass on the bottom of the screen, and you will be able to see what you have carefully crafted. If everything checks out, click “Send,” and your selected recipients will get your Photogram.
You can also access all the Photograms you’ve sent via the History tab on the bottom of the screen. Simply click any item in the list, and you will be able to view it again.
If you are looking for a fun, free app for sharing multiple photos in a postcard-like design, this Photogram app is for you. It’s easy to use, and it makes sharing photos a much more creative and enjoyable experience. Give it a download, and you will definitely like it.
