Curate Embeddable Thematic Photo Galleries from Social Hashtags with Picsho

Curate Embeddable Thematic Photo Galleries from Social Hashtags with Picsho | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Picsho is a free web app which allows you to create embeddable photo galleries from your favorite hashtag pics gathered from Instagram, Flickr, Twitter, Tumblr and other social networks.


Picso which I have reviewed before in 2012, has completely revamped its interface and released a new much simpler and more intuitive new version. 

To use it, you simply enter a hashtag or keyword, you select up to five visual sources (Flickr, Instagram, etc.) and then you wait for your gallery to load up. Once displayed you can manually curate which pictures to keep and which ones to exclude.

Once done, you assign a name and you can save and publish the gallery. If you are logged in, you can also re-edit and update your gallery anytime.


The only limitation, is that you cannot re-arrange or reposition images in a gallery.


For the rest, Picsho is one of the best and easiest tools I have found to rapidly curate a social images based collection and to be able to publish it on any site.


Free to use.

Robin, this sounded like an awesome idea, but when I played with it and tried to only capture a few photos that I wanted into a collection, it created the collection with all the photos in the hashtag .. seems like some glitches
Picsho's comment, December 23, 2012 11:50 PM
Hi, Beth. Sorry for the (extremely) delayed response! It definitely sounds like what you experienced was a glitch and/or a flaw in the UX, as Picsho was very early in the beta stage when this was originally shared by Robin Good. We're sure this has been fixed, and we've added lots more features since then. We would be glad if you'd check out the web app again and give us more feedback. Thanks!

Lists and Image Curation Comes To Instagram with InstaFeed



Robin Good's insight:



Instafeed is a iOS app which allows you to create custom lists of Instagram users and to re-post easily (with auto-credit) great images from other Instagram users to your own account.


Instafeed offers a growing set of pre-packaged feeds, on popular topics like fashion, pets and food, to which you can add your own curated set of custom feeds in which you decide who are your specific Instagram sources.


I would have loved to see a feed creation option based on hashtags rather than just on Instagram people, as it is very rare to find Instagram authors that post sistematically on a specific topic / theme / style.


Usability-wise I wasted a lot of time trying to understand how to watch any existing feed. Beyond that there are only a couple of extra commands only. But for me the need to double tap on the home page feed to view it was a frustrating barrier. I'd click each time only to be brought into seeing the list of sources for that channel. Other than this InstaFeed is as easy as sneezing.


The option to repost (with credit) Instagram pics you find in InstaFeed channels directly to your Instagram account is invaluable as it opens for the first time the opportunity for "curating" other people images on Instagram.


Given the huge quantity of visual material being created daily on Instagram, it is only going to be a matter of time before you will start seeing many other new services attempt to offer tools to more easily find, pick, group and republish relevant Instagram (or for that matter Flickr, Picasa, etc.) images to a theme or topic channel.


Free to use.

Robin Good has always something excellent to suggest to those who love curating

 You can repost any snaps you like directly to Instagram, which is a nice touch, and you can post comments too.
