Hi!! Have you seen elsie's fun new app ( abeautifulmess )? It works in conjunction with instagram and really represents her style and I know it was a lot of hard work building and getting the app developed, so congrats are in order for them seeing it through! :)
However, if you are an android user like myself, you are probably a little disssapointed that the app is only available for the iphone. I completely understand why, and elsie says that she hasnt forgotten us android users... so I expect it to hit the playstore at some point in time. :) BUT, until then did you know that you can kinda still feel like part of the in-crowd and utilize your existing eye candy overlay library? Using the same concept but done via your computer and uploaded to instagram after the fact?
See, you just need to:
1) Open your photo in photoshop, crop it square.
2) Apply your overlay(s) and save as JPEG
3) Download an uploader tool like gramblr (it is free and available HERE) This allows you to upload any square photo from your computer to your instagram account... kind of magical really. ;)
4) Sign into gramblr with your instagram account and upload your jpeg wih your Digital Eye Candy Overlay, add a caption, and click upload! :) Super simple.
I had fun going back through old images, and looking at them in new light with the overlays.
