Curate Instagram Pics From Any User or Hashtag Into Custom Albums with INK361

Curate Instagram Pics From Any User or Hashtag Into Custom Albums with INK361 | Content Curation World | Scoop.it



Robin Good's insight:



INK361 is a free web app which allows you to view, organize, filter and aggregate Instagram pics into "albums" that can be shared on all major social platforms as well as be embedded on any site or blog.


At its basic level INK361 gives the opportunity to create a Gallery which contains all of your Instagram pics and which you can share as a web collection with anyone or embed in your site.


When instead you want to create a "curated collection" of Instagram pics on INK361, you head to the "Albums" section and you specify a combination of @username and #hashtags (up to 5) that you want to use as filters. At this point INK361 aggregates for you all of the pics matching your specifications and gives you the tools to pick and select the ones you prefer, letting you position them in a digital album.


Curated albums can be shared in one-click on Pinterest, Twitter, Google+, Facebook, StumbleUpon, and more, or you can choose to grab a highly customizable embed code for your site.


My comment: While this is a web service clearly designed to support those looking to get some great prints from their Instagram pics, the "album" creation tool to curate, collect, organize and share/publish images from any account or hashtag while being able to manually pick, select and position   it's really great and it's the first serious tool I have seen to do effective Instagram curation.


Free to use.

Capture, Organize and Publish Your Curated Content Collections with Clipboard

Capture, Organize and Publish Your Curated Content Collections with Clipboard | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



In my humble opinion, Clipboard is the best capture and clipping tool for curation work that you can use today.  This is the real Pinterest on steroids. This free web app allows you to easily grab any text, image, area or full web page from any web site and to save it in your collection.


To be specific "you can clip text, photos, animations, videos, or all of the above mixed together. You can clip entire web pages or strip them down to just text. You can drag-and-drop images and text files from your desktop to Clipboard. You can create your own notes directly in Clipboard and save them as clips. You can also - if you are using a Google Chrome browser - bookmark entire PDF web pages (but you cannot clip sections of PDF files)."


The Clipboard browser extensions for Chrome and Firefox and the generic bookmarklet which can work on any browser is a little technology gem, making the capture work an absolute breeze.


Clipboard allows your collections to be set for public or private use, and it makes it easy to invite you other people that you want to contribute to your curation work.


Clips can be tagged, commented, annotated and shared with specific users (via mentioning their name handle). Clipboard collections can be easily shared on all major social networks, or embedded in any web site or blog.


On the display and navigation front good news too. Collections can be viewed in one of three possible modes (tile, item and list view).


Free to use.

Collect and Organize Your Favorite Texts, Images and Videos with Keeeb

Pinterest meets Evernote. Every day you surf and find amazing things on the internet. With Keeeb you can save sentences or paragraphs, single images and vide...
Robin Good's insight:



Keeeb is a Pinterest-like content curation tool, which allows you to clip individual text passages, images you find on web page or video clips into visual collections that you can organize according to your preferences.


Within Keeb visual boards, which can be set to be public or private (default), you can in fact drag and re-arrange individual items as you prefer. Collected items can also be easily copied or moved to other "pages" (collections) you have and can be shared directly on your Facebook or Twitter social media channels.


You can also work collaboratively with other teammates on a collection by inviting them to contribute to any Keeeb page you have created.


A unique feature of Keeeb called Groups allows to tie together multiple items in a collection by dragging them on top of each other. Groups in turn, can be nested into other groups.


Keeeb makes it very easy to clip multiple parts from a web page or set of pages and to collect them in an orderly manner inside a page.


Keeeb offers much better functionalities than Pinterest, allowing serious content curators to create valuable collections of multimedia excerpts on specific subjects.


Definitely worth trying.


Free to use.

Hi David, Keeeb is a good tool if you need to collect and organize web resources, images or video. It's better than Pinterest functionality-wise but it does not have its audience. So my advice is try it out and see if it does what you need to do.

Thanks Robin, I'm going to try ;-)
