Instagram is a fun and quirky way to share your life with friends through a series of pictures.
Creating an Instagram Account
Download the Instagram app for Apple iOS from the App Store, Android from Google Play Store or Windows Phone from the Windows Phone Store.
Once downloaded tap the Instagram iconto begin the registration process. You have the choice of registering with Email to sign up with your email address or Register with Facebook to sign up with your Facebook account.
Posting an image
Once you have chosen an image to post you will have the option to choose a filter to enhance your picture.
You will then get the option to write something about your image which SHOULD include a hashtag.
(Example: If you have taken a picture of a sunflower in the Cotswolds your message could read - Beautiful sunflower outside my house #sunflower #cotswolds #yellow #summer).
Once posted you can click onto each hashtag to see other images [from other people] that have used that hashtag of whom you may wish to follow.
That should be enough to get you started! Any questions please don't hesitate to ask!k
