Instagram is a fantastic tool for photographers to promote their work. It’s not incredibly complicated to get the hang of it: post your pictures, add a description along with a couple of hashtags, and people can find your images. However, if you’ve been using it long enough, you may have noticed that your stream quickly looks like a mass of pictures with no continuity. Since the app doesn’t allow for pre-planned posts, it’s difficult to keep a visually appealing account. That is unless you use an app such as UNUM to help you out.
UNUM is an app for mobile devices which lets you create a virtual grid of images. Its interface is very intuitive. No need for a user guide or lengthy tutorials. Open it up, connect it to your Instagram account, and load all the images you’d like to post.
From there, you can organize them on a virtual grid to make sure your stream of images is attractive for viewers. The goal should be to make your audience want to scroll your whole feed. To make the posting process even more efficient and quick, you can write in advance the description for each image your import in the app. Then, with a simple press of a button, you can copy and paste the description and picture to Instagram. It’s even possible to be reminded when to post so that you never forget the high peaks of the day.
Best of all, unless you have tons of pictures to post across multiple accounts, the app is entirely free. So if you are serious about Instagram and want to try and keep a slightly better-looking stream, be sure to give it a try. UNUM is available on both the App Store and Google Play.
