  1. Android Tutorial: Share Multiple Photos To Instagram With PicFrame

    Now that Instagram is available on Android devices you may be wondering how people are uploading multiple photos.  One way is to use our iOS app PicFrame (over 100,000 photos are tagged with #PicFrame on the Instagram network), well now it’s available on Android devices and just like its iPhone counterpart you can use it to share directly to Instagram.

    First, install PicFrame from Google Play.  Once it is installed open it up and select one of the 32 frames available that suits the amount of photos you want to share.

    Load it up with your photos by tapping the frame areas and inserting them.

    Once you have zoomed and aligned your photos tap the Share icon.  You can leave it on the medium resolution as it is perfect for Instagram.

    Tap the Share button and you should be presented with a list of applications/services you can use to share your PicFrame with.  If you have installed Instagram then it will show up in the list.

    Tapping Instagram will load the application and allow you to crop, then share the PicFrame image.  Don’t forget to tag it with #PicFrame in the caption!

  2. Tutorial: Create a Polaroid style photo in PicFrame with your iPhone or iPad

    You can easily create a Polaroid style photo in PicFrame, and with the labels in app purchase add some text to complete the look.

    To start with select the frame with two areas for photos.  One at the top, the other at the bottom.

    Main PicFrame Screen

    Insert a photo into the top area and drag the border down so there is only a small area at the bottom. I’ve also rounded the corners slightly.

    Photo Adjust Screen

    In the Style screen make the border width slight larger and select the pattern that is highlighted with a blue border in the screenshot below.

    Pattern Screen

    Finally, if you have the Labels add on for PicFrame you can go to the Labels screen and add one to the bottom area.  I set the label color to be slightly off white and about 70% opacity, with the “Notethis” font in an almost black color.  Feel free to play around with different fonts and colors to find something you like.

    That’s it!  Save it.  You have created an awesome looking Polaroid style photo.
