We’ve all got them. That perfect shot hidden away on our hard drive or waiting in a negative sleeve.
But, with 80 bajillion photo sharing sites out there the question of where to share our masterpieces is not always an easy answer.
Getting your photos in the right place means getting your photos seen, so Photojojo has come up with a foolproof guide to help you figure out:
A) What type of photographer are you?
Sound simple? It is!
You can finally give ImageHive the heave ho and find the sharing service that’s right for you.

Back before Snapseed and Instagram, photographers used lens filters to add snazzy effects to their snapshots.
But filters can cost you a pretty penny, and you’re quite happy keeping your pennies, thankyouverymuch.
Well, we’ve got you covered because we’ve rounded up 10 DIY photo filters that won’t cost you.
In fact, most of these things are probably just lying around the house!
So follow along with our roundup as we accentuate the analogue and re-imagine the digital.
p.s. Our pals at Mosaic make some seriously beautiful photobooks you can create right from your iPhone! Take a look-see here.
We’ll admit it, we’re obsessed with iPhoneography.
We thought it was about time that we started taking our photos out of our phones and sharing them with the material world.
Today we’re showing you how you can make your own phone photo stickers, magnets, photobooth-style strips, lamps, and more with your iPhone photos using your household inkjet printer!
If you know us, you know we love instant film. A lot.
So, when we heard Impossible Project would be releasing two new & improved instant films, we jumped at the chance to give ‘em a whirl.
First we met PX 680: A film that produces beautifully saturated prints that practically ooze with color.
Second, Black Frame PX 600 silver shade: A black and white film with sleek black frames for a classic, gallery-ready look.
Both films are so easy to use and versatile, your camera might write you a love letter for feeding it so well.
Plus: While experimenting, we found a technique that’ll let you transform your new black frame images into photo transparencies!
It’s simple, fun, and takes less than five minutes. We were so impressed with the results, we had to share.
Ever wonder how your camera works?
…If instant photos are actually made of something other than magic?
We sure as heck do!
In fact, we think the science of photography is half of the reason that being a photographer is so freakin’ cool.
While photography usually feels like magic, it’s actually very scientific and mathematical. (We even know the ISO of the human eye!)
We’re going to show you some of our favorite basic photography techniques, what makes them tick, and how you can try them all yourself for a hands-on view of how all your favorite photo stuff works!
p.s. We’re searching for a few fabulous photogs to take photos for the shop! Got what it takes?
Whether Easter inspires Donny Darko nightmares or delightful memories of Peeps o’ yesteryear, it’s an egg-straordinary holiday that calls for some celebratory photo fun.
We’re talkin’ about using your own fantastic photos to spruce up an Easter egg—mosaic-style!
This DIY gives you the chance to showcase your pics while making your eggs look pretty, and you don’t have to deal with any messy dyes or markers.
The Peeps approve.
p.s. Our pals at Artsy Couture turn your photos into rad Gallery Blocks. They’re beautiful solid wood blocks with your very own photos mounted onto them!
Hey, you got a new camera strap! Wow, that looks really good on you.
So what are you gonna do with your old one? What?! No way, you can’t just let it lie around in a drawer.
Tell you what. Dig out that old tote bag and put the strap on that. Oh you know — the bag you never use because the handles are too short.
It’ll be easy. Just put an eyelet in each side of the bag and attach the camera strap to those.
Here, look, we’ll show you how. C’mon, it’s gonna look great!
Boy, do we love digital photos.
They’re easy to make, and we can take hundreds of pictures every day without wasting a single roll of film.
Yet after hours of photo-editing and Instagramming from our phones, sometimes we’re left yearning for some old fashioned hands-on photographic fun.
So, imagine how happy we were to discover a super fun, easy, and chemical-free method that you can use to transform your digital pictures into homemade photo sunprints!
While we’d love to spend lots of time in darkrooms printing all our photos, this method let’s us get into some analog printing fun while playing with our digital-based creations.
Marsupials are jerks.*
Look at ‘em, with their beady little eyes, lording it over us because they’ve got pouches. “Look at us,” they say, “our young don’t even have to walk because we’ve got these rad pouches.”
We found the cure to pouch envy.
It’s an amazing way to turn photos into pouches. All you need is some easy-to-find photo fabric and some glue: you don’t even need to sew.
These are just like the pouches you see in hip shops that look like cassette tapes, tacos or PB&J sandwiches. You can make your pouch look like any object you can find!
Now we can carry anything: cameras, credit cards, spare batteries, tiny fetal marsupials…Take that, smug koalas of the world.
p.s. Facebook called. It said you should probably “like” us.
In preparation for holiday celebrations sweeping the nations, may we present:
With some simple perforations (and no lamentations) your festive decorations will garner adulation!
