Joy – Sharing My Favorite Images Using Flipagram
At year’s end, I wanted to share some of my favorite images after looking through hundreds of photographs. My goal with this blog is that with every post I want to provide a photo technique that you may or may not be aware of. With every tutorial and image, I hope to enable you to improve your photographs technically and artistically.
My source for sharing my favorite images is the iPhone application called “Flipagram.” At the end of this tutorial you can click on the Flipagram link to view my favorite images. First, what is Flipagram?
What is Flipagram?
Most of us have hundred’s of photos in our iPhone Camera Roll or using the Instagram app. Flipagram is an iPhone (and Droid) application that allows you to select individual images and turn them into a video format to share with family and friends. Not only that, you can add music and share the video through: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Email, Test Message (SMS), or Copy to Clipboard.
How Easy Is It?
<> Download the Flipagram application from the Apple “App Store.” Once you have the app and open it, create an account.
<> Click on the “Start” button.
<> Next, up pops your iPhone images found in any of these sources: Instagram app, Facebook, iPhone Photo Albums, Camera Roll, or My Photo Stream. Simply click on all the images you wish to use.
<> Click on the check mark icon in the top right-hand corner and all the images will be moved to your Flipagram app. You can go back and add more images.
<> Your images will appear in the “1 Moment” window. Now, click on the “>” icon and you are now in “2 Moments.” Here, you can click on an image to rearrange its position among the other images. Double-clicking on an image allows you to crop the image. Click “done” when finished.
Don’t Have Many Images or Use Instragram?
Cool trick – Here’s what you can do if you don’t use Instagram or have a great deal of images stored on your iPhone. If you have a webpage containing images you can move them to your iPhone by following these easy steps:
- Open Safari on your iPhone. Navigate to your website and find images you wish to use with Flipagram.
- Click and hold your finger on an image. Up pops a window allowing you to: “Save Image” “Copy” or “Cancel.” Click “Save Image” and it’s stored on you iPhone Camera Roll or My Photo Stream.
Adding Timing, Title, & Music
Click on the “>” icon again and up pops another new window. Here, you can play your video, add music (From your iPhone or import new music.), adjust the timing of your images as they play, add a title, select the font, and change the Watermark.
I recommend you take the time to play your video a few times to make sure you like the order of the images, the speed at which they appear, and the music.
Finalizing Your Flipagram Video
Click on the check mark located in the top right-hand corner. Up pops a window asking if you are ready to finalize your Flipagram. Selecting “Yes” will create your video and save it in your iPhone photo folder.
At the bottom of the application, you will see “Share” that allows you to share your video via: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Email, Test Message (SMS), or Copy to Clipboard.
That’s all it takes!
