Bring your Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and desktop images to life with these fun prints on our Instablocks

With the continuous increase in pixels cellphones can now offer, your cellphone has now become your most convenient camera whether you are a professional photographer or simply Joe Soap. Photography is now literally at your fingertips and using a cellphone or a tablet is the most popular mode of taking a photo these days. No longer left to a travel experience, everyday experiences can be captured and shared on social media, inviting your family and friends into your life and special moments.

Images can also be enhanced using filters from these amazing apps such as Instagram, Hipstamatic, FilterGrid, SuperPhoto, Snapseed and Pixlromatic amongst many others .
Instagram is simply a photo-taking and photo-sharing app. Instagram adds filters like retro, black and white or rise, and these can then be shared with sites like Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, and Facebook. It's a simple social network of other people's photos. You can "like" or comment on the photos, and see what's new. It's easy and doesn't take much time or effort, one of the reasons it has become so popular so quickly.

The Hipstamatic app is a simple way to create artistic photos with just your iPhone, and FilterGrid for Android users.
“With several built-in lenses, types of flash, and different films, there are literally hundreds of combinations that can be achieved. But what is really exciting about Hipstamatic is that each photo is unique, a little bit off-beat. When using the Hipstamatic app you never know exactly what you’re going to get, and the hope of something fantastic keeps iPhoneographers coming back to this app time and time again.” - See more about this app here.

"FilterGrid is the best Camera & Photo editor which you can combine multiple filters into 1 photo to create astounding effects. Use the preset 44 kinds of templates and different kinds of filter combinations to quickly show a variety of styles. Of course you can still use the 65 kinds of filter combinations to make your own filter effects. And then you can share your creations to Instagram,Facebook when complete your creative work."

Snapseed is often described as an Instagram competitor. That's slightly true in that both apps allow you to take pictures from your phone or tablet, apply filters, and share them on different platforms. Instagram is much easier to use in a point, filter, share sense. Snapseed is more of an artist's tool with more advanced features. It's the app you use when you want to take longer to make something a little more advanced.

Enjoy taking your photos and sharing them, for those absolute favourites, print them on RapidStudio's funky Instablocks. These 10cm x 10cm mini canvas blocks make a great addition to any living space. You can display these keepsakes on your desk at the office, at home or hang them up by the pre-drilled holes with a Hilti nail.

Creative Ideas for a Post-Holiday Photobook

Here’s how to turn your holiday photos into a creative, must-keep photobook.

Returning home after a holiday can leave you with the post-travel blues. As you wash your bikini, shake the sand out of your sneakers, and try to revive the house plants you haven’t watered for two weeks, you begin to long for the lazy days of a vacation.

But, just because you’re home, doesn’t mean the holiday fun is over. Gather your memories up and create a photobook of your trip.
