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.

The new buzz around the web is a social network of photographs using Instagr.am (iTunes app store link).  Sure this could be done with other tools like Facebook, Picasa or Flickr, but each network has its own group and to send a photo out to each can be a time consuming task.  With Instagr.am, you can  post instantaneously and simultaneously to Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Foursquare, or Tumblr.

Instagram is quickly becoming one of my favorite iPhone app for photography.  The photos you take in Instagram are cropped to a square and saved to your camera roll.  Even if you are not convinced, Instagram is FREE and available in the app store , so at least give it a try and see what all the fuss is all about. I think you will find yourself charmed by this great app.  The only feature I’d recommend they add is the ability to save directly to dropbox.

Here are some of my recent Instagram photos:
