Now why did I not think to just go and get the app?
Silly thought really to just go and get the app, but a true one. Where most people have some type of digital photograph collection being used whenever they can there are still people who have bloodcurdling privacy concerns. Probably left over from the corrupted paranoia of the early internet days. People with shoe boxes of pristine conditioned photographs that someone will one day uncover. The histories and the people forgotten in then may even be thrown away.
Examples of my own pitiful excuses were two-fold. Firstly the Canon camera with 10 lenses and other take off and out this one on for different effects was stolen. Result: so many photo opportunities missed.
Fifteen years later I finally had the money to purchase a new one. Then for years there were photos being uploaded on the computer enabling direct loading to occur. No cost for photo production. Online was faster and easier. Stored on the hard drive now fixed into the not connected as the external casing somehow broke. Therefore no access. No access means not photos
Platforms like Instagram were already established.. Unlike Pinterest Instagram required a mobile device to upload on the platform with. Or the photos on the phone to be downloaded into the computer. Still that did not prove fruitful as from the camera to Instagram needed to be a link.
Meet the challenge and just go and get the app
An impossible challenge…. Until a mindset change occurred. Think outside the box. Remember that people are inventors. Inventors solve problems
through challenging themselves to beat the rules. Instagram’s rule was to upload directly from the camera to Instagram. That left many people without accounts
Hunting online there was little information out there. Everyone and their shadow wanted money in exchange for information. That’s when it hit me. Having access to the exclusive members-only site meant the most up to date answer would be among the community there.
An application was created by someone. Now through a third party means you simply upload pictures from your computer and through a small pick and choose process the pictures are uploaded into Instagram. Embarrassingly it was through an older person than me making the comment ” … just go and get the app“.
Believe me…. to have just go and get the app sooner
Once again that realization that education and upskilling online means you learn “where there is a will there is an app!” Open your mind to the possibilities and think outside the box. In so doing it feels great to know the photos and other visuals either taken or being created are appreciated.
Just a thought about things like just go and get the app. Positive people don’t make a good day – They make them happen. Taking photos and videos and create pictures. Sharing these along the way
