This guest post is written by Toner Giant’s SEO Lead Ahmed Bhula. Once you have used your Photoshop skills to edit your favourite photos and shared them with your friends on your social networks, you can use the tools in this post to print them! In these digital times it is all too easy to upload a photo onto the web and then forget about it. Print your favourite ones out and cherish them for longer. Here is the post from Ahmed…
We have all heard Facebook recently purchased Instagram (a popular photo sharing tool) for 1 billion dollars. People love to share photos with their friends and the world on social sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Now the problem is, many users love to have hard copies of pictures and printing a whole album from these sites can be a tedious task. Luckily for us, there are tools out there that do this for you…
For heavy Instagram users, Printsgram is the only tool you need. A simple online tool that connects to your Instagram account and allows you to create your very own poster from your photos. You can create:
- A4 Poster (I made a simple one here)
- A3 Poster
- A1 Poster
- A Photo Cube
- A4 Stickers
Best of all, it’s free!
Photobox have developed a Facebook application that lets you print pictures you’ve uploaded to Facebook. In addition you can order prints (delivered) in the form of:
- Photo books
Snapfish is similar to Photobox. You can connect to your Facebook and Flickr accounts with Snapfish and have your pictures printed & delivered to your door within 7 days. New customers get 50 pictures free, too. Like Photobox, Snapfish also offers customisable merchandise with your photos and images. The list includes:
- Cups and mugs
- Photo stamps
- and even teddy bears!
Many people use Google’s own picture sharing site Picasa, to store and share photos online. Picasa has a great desktop tool you can download for free through which you can print your pictures or order delivered prints. Now with Google+ integration, you can print pictures shared with you on the fly!
- Share to Google+
- Face recognition
- Photo editing effects (similar to Instagram)
- Movie Maker
- and many more!
The Facebook Friend Poster
The Facebook Friend Poster service is is quite a cool service. For those who would always like to be reminded of their friends at all times, this service tiles all your friends’ profile pictures in a clean grid. The service costs $31 (including shipping) or approx £20 for those in the UK.
The same company (Social Print Studio) offer quite a few other nifty services to print photos from your social profile if you want more…
What’s your favourit service or tool? There are a plethora out there so sometimes we can be lost for choice! Please comment below.
