how to make instagram blog posts

how to make instagram posts week in photos tutorial
follow me on instagram @llymlrs

Making Instagram or week in photos posts are super easy, Im always surprised by the amount of people that do actually ask me "How do you get your photos like that?". So hopefully this doesn't come off as being patronising, Im just trying to help those who don't understand. Here is my super quick and easy method on how to make Instagram blog posts! I hope that this does help people who were unsure about how to go about making them or people like me who were doing it the long way editing it all in photoshop! Instagram posts are so easy to do and I think are so popular within blogging (who isn't nosey about other peoples lives!) So its great to add it to your regular content roll!
1. Save all your photos to your computer. To do this I use Web.Stagram or you could use your Twitter Image Feed or just get them off your images iPhone manually.

2. Edit photos together. I do this in one of two ways, I either manually open all the files and edit them together using Photoshop. This is a bit of faff, especially when you have a lot of images to go through. Or I found this tool called "Mosaic Maker" which is SO helpful and takes half the time! You upload all the images from your computer to their server (you need to open an account, but its free), then you can set the ammount of rows and colums of photos to fit your needs. You can even add border and background colours and alternative mosaic layouts!

3. Export and Save to your computer, then upload to your blog post like you would any other image! Then go and add your own labels underneath for each image, post and voila!

  1. Thanks for this! I always just upload each individual Instagram and then try to align them in the blog post which takes forever!

  7. I usually use Picnik but as that's closing down I think I'll convert to this way!

    I love Instagram and Week photo posts, it's especially good if you don't follow that person on Instagram! :)

  11. If you want a free alternative to photoshop try a program called gimp (honest) it's open source photo manipulation and the menus are the same as photoshop!

  19. Thank you for this post. It is simple just like you said but if it's something that you're new to then it's quite difficult to figure out an easy way to do it. Before this post I'd never heard of Webstagram or Mosaic Maker so you've made my life much easier. Thank youu! xx

  26. Instagram has many power users with very few tools.
    InstaPower User has more than one tool.
    Follow/Unfollow tool: see how many followers have liked or commented as well as if you follow them back or not.
    Comment response tool: manage your posts, see how many comments and how many replies you have made (included @username in comment)
    Ghost Identification: find the followers who do not comment or like your posts. You can then decide to unfollow or remove one by one or all ghost users.
    Problems Solved.
    Like twitter bots, no need for webstagram, instafrmanger, instafollower
    Why You need it?
    One tool does it all - for real instagram users
    Why fund it?
    I need your help to make it better and to make it succeed.
    How funding will help?
    I am asking for your help to beta test, improve my application, improve the user interface, eliminate bugs and help me create the perfect icon. Any extra funds will help speed up the development time of the iPad and iPhone version. I am really looking to get as many people involved in this project as possible. The success of these apps are solely dependent upon the support of the users.
