Instagram Increases Image Resolution

Share

Instagram’s image resolution has been stuck on 640 x 640 for a long time but following the recent upgrade to the app, Instagram has now started storing higher resolution images  – 1080 x 1080 on its servers.

This update is welcome but not particularly revolutionary. Flickr and Google photos offer the better solution for artists wanting to store images at high resolution online.

Mike Krieger, co-founder of Instagram, announced via Twitter, yesterday the roll-out to both iOS and Android versions of the app.

(Many thanks to Ile Mont, for the tip).

New Photography App – Google Photos and It’s Amazing!

Share

Google Photos allows you to organise and store all of your images, across all of your devices for a lifetime, literally. They’re automatically backed up and synced, so you can have peace of mind that your photos are safe, available across all your devices.

With Google Photos, you can now backup and store unlimited, high-quality photos and videos, for free. They maintain the original resolution up to 16MP for photos, and 1080p high-definition for videos, and store compressed versions of the photos and videos in beautiful, print-quality resolution.

Google Photos automatically organizes your memories by the people, places, and things that matter. You don’t have to tag or label any of them, and you don’t need to laboriously create albums. When you want to find a particular shot, with a simple search you can instantly find any photo—whether it’s your dog, your daughter’s birthday party, or your favorite beach in Santa Barbara. And all of this auto-grouping is private, for your eyes only.

The app can also help you quickly enhance photos and combine them in new ways to help you relive your life’s moments. In one tap, get instant adjustments tuned to the photo’s color, lighting, and subject to make each photo look its best. Press the “+” button to create your own collages, animations, movies with soundtracks, and more.

If you swipe to the left, you’ll open the Assistant view, where we’ll suggest new things made with your photos and videos, such as a collage or a story based on a recent trip you took. After previewing the creation, you can choose to keep, edit, or discard it.
