Webinar: Instagram for Genealogists is archived!

WOW! We sure had a blast Monday night "Instagramming"! My daughter Carrie Keele presented a webinar, and I helped! This post includes the name of the Carrie's favorite iPhone apps to use with Instagram, comments from attendees and the links to the archived version of the webinar.
Carrie's Favorite iPhone Apps:

  • Instagram
  • Camera+
  • InstaPlus
  • 100Cameras
  • DipTic
  • Frame Free
  • InstaFrame - free 
  • LensFlare 
  • PopBooth
  • iMovie
  • Hipstamatic
  • PS Express
  • Live FX lite
  • VersaGram
  • TextGram
  • Red Stamp
  • Tweegram
  • Label Box
  • Pinstagram
  • Pic Jointer

Neither Carrie nor Ol' Myrt here  have an Android, so we cannot advise you on similar apps.  During the webinar, Patrice Green said PhotoGrid for Android is a good one. 

Kathy C says: "Thanks for putting that [webinar] together for us! I have always wanted to play with  Instagram and had not yet done it.The webinar took away any learning curve that I might have had! I  have plans to surprise my kids with a collage sent to them on Instagram soon. Won't they be surprised!   LOL! I hope you continue to do that again. I hope to see you in Birmingham."
Connie Cosgrove says: "Thanks so much for  the webinar on Instagram! Carrie did an excellent and easy to follow presentation.  Your comments (and Russ') were quite  informative.  I look forward to viewing your Family Tree Maker presentations as well.

There is another iPhone app for picture editing that combines many of the other apps' features. It's called Aviary.  It is free, however there are 3 add-on filters that cost $.99.  Aviary was recommended by a podcast called "iFive for the Phone", which gives tips on battery usage, new apps, etc.

Question about the memories contest: is the only way to submit material via Facebook? I don't belong to Faceboo
NOTE from DearMYRTLE: You can submit your 2012 "Share a Memory" Contest contest entry to us via Instagram or Twitter, using the following to draw it to our attention!
