Can you get good color with Instagram?

Instagram experience

After reading about the $1B Facebook paid for Instagram I had to see what the phone app did. I downloaded the app to my Droid phone, signed up and proceeded to apply the Instagram “filters” to adjust the color to a photo in my phone gallery. I have to say I was not impressed. Admittedly, I am a bit sensitive about color and really don’t like “special effects” for the photos I share, but I simply could not get what I consider good color from any of the filters. And, to top it off when I tried to delete the edited photo (I did not want to share it on Facebook) I ended up deleting all the photos in my gallery. Probably my fault, but…….  Fortunately, I had transferred the photos to my computer so all is not lost. I am sure the sharing and other features of Instagram are worthwhile and I am not questioning the wisdom of Facebook’s acquisition, but comparing the color correction/adjustment features to iCorrect OneClick I found that OneClick was a faster and easier way to Make the Color Right.

 If you have an iPhone you are in luck–iCorrect OneClick Color iPhone App is available at the App Store
I used iCorrect OneClick Photoshop plug-in correct the photo since iCorrect OneClick App is only available for the iPhone and not the Droid (I guess we should develop a OneClick app for Google and the Android). Here is a video which describes how iCorrect OneClick iPhone App will help you take and upload better photos to Facebook. You can buy iCorrect OneClick App in the App Store.

Maybe I just didn’t pick the right Instagram filter to get good color, but I did try most of them. And, maybe the pupose of the filters are to create special effects and not to Make the Color Right. In any event, I did find it easier and faster to correct the color using OneClick.
