I have been serving in youth ministry for nearly 20 years, am currently the Director of Student Ministries at Valley Church in Des Moines, IA, and am on a first name basis with several Best Buy and Apple employees. My wife Keri and I have been married over ten years and have three great boys. My four favorite things are Jesus, my wife, Chicago Style Pizza, and fighting off our boys with sweet ninja moves.

I really like using Instagram, it takes cool pictures, has great filters, and it posts to my favorite social network sites.  There are a few things I would like to see added to Instagram like more control over the tilt-shift feature (they had it then took it away…weird), a “save original image to album” feature, and a better site that can be browsed.  I guess I can use other apps for those features but I love the simplicity of Instagram.  Because I use it so much I thought I would share a few of my favorite “Insta” sites on the web.

  • Extragram is a site that allows you to brows all you Instagram photos.  Forgot to save them?  No worries, just sign up and browse away. I also like Instagrid.me. Once you sign up you can give out your own personal web address and let others browse too. (FREE)
  • Instaport is a great find.  I have not saved all my past photos, not a problem with Instapost.  Sign up here and you can download all your pics in one simple zip file. (FREE)
  • Postagram sends your pics from your iPhone or Android directly to someone’s mail box. Check out this post I wrote last year on this great app. ($.99 covers printing and shipping)
  • Looking for cool pics from an event you wish you were at?  “Search Instagram” is a great site for taking a look at the bigger picture. Check out these links; SYMC, Cubs, youthministry.  What to move through the pics more quickly? Click the “stop stream” and then you can scroll.

What are some of your favorite Instagram sites and uses?
