Take an ordinary photo...not that pretty...nothing remarkable about it...
and make it look like this (in 12 seconds)
Open instagram and select it:
Crop it nicely (removing that ugly utility pole):
Fix the poor exposure using this sunshine button at the bottom (called lux).
Choose your filter. I really like Lo-fi.
Play around with the blur button. Use your fingers to pinch or expand the area you want clear.
You can do a circle or a line blur. I decided I wanted the Arcadia sign to be clear so I changed to the line blur.
Then I clicked on the green check mark and gave it a hashtag. A hashtag
puts your picture in a searchable category. I gave my picture the hash
tag route66. I could have also used roundbarn.
You cannot have any spaces in your hashtag. Typing #round barn will only give it the hash tag of "round".
Now isn't that a better photo?
If you tap on your hash tag (#route66) it will bring up other pictures with the same hashtag.
I love Instagram!
