If you’re feeling particularly proud of your Instagram photos you can share them in more ways than just linking to them in a tweet, as a whole host of companies are bringing us cool new ways to add them to real products, like posters, magnets or even teeny tiny books.
The great thing about most of these services is they have Instagram integration, so you can easily log-in to your account and select the photos you want instead of downloading them, uploading them and starting from scratch, which means the whole process can often take only a few minutes if you know exactly what you want your fancy new product to look like.
Although it may seem a bit early, it’s probably worth thinking about Instagram products for Christmas too. Grandparents just LOVE to look at photos you’ve taken, even if they’re a bit narcissistic and far too blurry.
To celebrate Instagram week we’re running an easy to enter mobile photography competition with our friends at Orbitsound. All you have to do is take a photo with an Autumnal theme and share it on Twitter along with the hash tag #ShinyAutumn. It can be of a leaf or a Halloween costume, we really don’t mind. The winner will get a fabulous T12v3 speaker bar from Orbitsound and 19 runners up will get random iPhone related goodies.
