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.

We often want to create a collage of photo's as a page design. Most of the time we are not totally confident in creating this type of layout in Rapidstudio, as you have to be accurate in your aligning and spacing of pictures. In this tutorial I will be explaining how to create a collage of pictures on a page, as it covers most of the alignment and spacing topics.
I hope this tutorial will help you realise your design intent more accurately and efficiently.
You will probably start with a page layout something similar to this

We are going to start with top row of pictures. The following explanation only refers to the top row, we will be dealing with the rest of the images a bit later.
First of all we need to move the pictures next to each other horizontally to see if they will fit in the "Safe Area" of the page. In this example the pictures are too wide and overlap the safe area horizontally. Please note that you will have to leave a decent amount of space between the safe …

Tip 8: Choosing the right internet acecss for your lifestyle

Choosing the right internet access for your lifestyle

With so many ISPs out there these days, it's difficult to decide what type of access you need and which product will be cost effective and best suit your needs.
In the by-gone days of dial up our internet usage was measured by the amount of time we spent connected, and we all quickly got into the habit of plugging in the modem, quickly connecting, checking our mail doing what little surfing we needed and then before we ran up a huge bill, disconnected and unplugged the modem again - just to make sure.

Now days with the advent of broadband, we're no longer charged by the amount of time we spend online, but instead by the amount of data that we use up. while it's true that the longer you're connected the more likely you are to use more data, most people find it convenient and not too expensive to be connected all the time.

Being connected all the time does however come with some dangers. the chances of picking up unwa…
