How to use #InstagramStories

Instagram Stories it’s here (to stay?) And fill that niche that Snapchat was hoarding. So far so good, but… do we know how to used it? While its interface is quite intuitive, there’re some differences here and there with the “inspiration” of its new feature. We share with you some details on how Instagram Stories works and some similarities/ differences with Snapchat. Okay. But … How it is used? Sharing a story Instagram is very similar to share a snap in Snapchat. The stories are temporary photos or videos that come together in a slideshow, that is “live” 24 hours before being automatically deleted. To create an Instagram Story you can: Press the icon with the plus sign in the upper left corner of your screen or slide right in your Instagram feed (you must have the latest version of Instagram installed). Click the circular bottom to take a picture or leave it pressed to capture video. Just keep in mind that the video will be 10 seconds long, tops. Edit your photo or video by adding text, emoji or draw on them with the 3 different brushes. You can also slide right or left to add filters. Click Done to save your story. Click the icon with the check mark to publish your story. Tips: You can control who sees your stories by pressing the gear icon on iOS (3 dots icon on Android) or slide down in your story to access the same options. From there you can select who can (or can’t) view your publication. There you can also select who can answer/ comment on your stories:...

#ParisInMotion – Look again at Paris

#ParisInMotion – Look again at Paris

It hasn’t been easy months for Paris. In the wake of a difficult six months, people have been understandably cautious to visit the french capital. But Paris is an extraordinary city; one that will always champion love and beauty over fear. A city that has changed in the last six months, but remains as unique and captivating as it ever was.   #ParisInMotion With this premise, the Marriott International hotels proposed to instagramers, along with other guests, portraying the city in a way never seen before, looking to capture THAT first thing that you fell in love with Paris. From France Sébastien Pelegrin (@seb_gordon), member of the of France instagramers community and representing the international Instagramers account, Gastón Oliva (@gastonoliva) that helps with instagramers.com internationally. Both had the mission to portray the daily life of Paris, but from another perspective: using cinemagraphs.   Cinemagraphs Cinemagraphs are striking digital images, part moving; part static that were pioneered in 2011 by NYC photographers Jamie Beck & Kevin Burg, and enabled on Facebook last year. These ‘living photos’ prompt fascination in viewers and generate up to 71% more online reach than conventional pictures. Each quasi-moving image evokes a feeling of being both within the picture, and remaining distant. The same feeling you get when visiting a place at once familiar and strange – like Paris. Revealing the beauty and grace of Paris through a completely new lens will cause people to reconsider how unique it is. We hope our amazing collection of digital art will inspire them to visit the city for real.   Cinemagraph by Sébastien Pélegrin   Cinemagraph by Gastón Oliva   Cinemagraph by Sébastien Pélegrin   Cinemagraph by Gastón Oliva  ...
