Sharing Instagram photos on Google+ automatically

Instagram (free) is a lot of fun, although it’s often criticized as being the “auto-tune for photography.” Google+ is the new social networking flavor of the week, so it’s natural that the two services should get together. Wired’s Gadget Lab has cooked up a recipe for more Instagram enjoyment by hacking a method of joining the two in unholy matrimony, as well as providing other fun hints.

Before I divulge their other hints, let’s get to the meat of the matter for those of you who are among the Google+ cognoscenti: getting your Instagrams to Google’s Picasa photo sharing site so they can be shared on Google+. Yeah, hopefully this is added to Instagram in the near future. For the present, this is how you do it, folks.

To have all of your future Instagram photos sent immediately to Google+, blogger Charlie Sorrel has you set up Instadrop, which automagically connects your Instagram and Dropbox accounts. Send a photo out on Instagram, and it shows up in a Dropbox folder named Instagram Photos. Next, pick up a copy of the free Picasa app for Mac. From the File menu, select “Add Folder to Picasa” and point it at your new Instagram Photos folder on Dropbox.
