Oggl by Hipstamatic The Social Photo Sharing Network

Hi today I’d like to share with you Oggl by hipstamatic, their social photo sharing network. It’s similar to Instagram but I tend to find that more serious photographers post their images here, with not so many selfies , food or advertising posts. Don’t get me wrong Instamatic is great and I use it a lot, but I much prefer Oggl and it’s unique way of cataloguing and sharing images. You can join for free and use a limited number of Hipstamatic Film + lens combos or pay £1.99 for 3 months or £6.99 a year and have access to all your Hipsta combo’s by importing them over. Once you’ve downloaded the app and opened it you will see the home screen…

IMG_5122 IMG_5123 This screen acts a bit like a news screen for oggl, showing things like people you’re following and fresh photos uploaded recently it also gives a link to recent instagram images. The search screen allows you to look for specific people or friends and shows a few more collections, profiles and interesting images as well……

IMG_5125  This is my home screen on oggl. It’s shows the number of people following me, my profile picture, my shared images and my collections. You can edit your screen image and change your profile here. My collections are images i’ve either favourited and reposted or separate collections that i’ve created i.e people portraits and moody streets. This is a great way to keep images of separate genres together and other people can subscribe to your collections as well….

IMG_5126  This is where I can see all the likes and favs for my images, I can easily go to their page and like their images from here as well. Unfortunately there no comment facility but some people get over this by giving a mention in their caption space when they upload an image. You can see these mentions by looking them up in your settings on your home screen!..

You can import images into oggl from your picture library or directly from Hipstamatic, and of course take pictures from oggl’s own camera as well!!

IMG_5129 IMG_5140When you select the camera, you have the choice of using any number of combo’s for your picture taking. You are able to save your favourite combo’s or mix and match from any of the different lenses and film’s you have imported. The second screenshot is from Hipstamatic and shows their sharing option so you can import to another app.

IMG_5132 IMG_5133 IMG_5134 The first screenshot is of my photo library where my pictures are stored or I can import from my camera roll by tapping the + button on the top left hand corner. The second screenshot is of a selected image that I want to publish in oggl. I can change the filter at the bottom of the screen as shown in the third screenshot.I’m now ready to tag and share this image…

IMG_5135 IMG_5136 As you can see from the first screenshot you are able to share with facebook, twitter, instagram etc by pressing the corresponding icon. You can enter a location and a caption i.e title, editing and even a thank you to another person by hashtagging their user id.. Now I’m ready to share on the oggl community..

IMG_5137 IMG_5138 IMG_5139 After pressing the share button my image will appear in the latest fresh photo stream where people can look at it, like it and repost if they want. You can simply like by double tapping the image or by tapping the like button at the bottom…

I hope this explains Oggl a bit to you, as i’ve not found too much on the web that explains it very well. Give it a go, it does take a little bit of time to get used to it but that effort is well worth it.. Thanks again for reading and let me know your thoughts…

  1. I’m a big Hipstamatic fan and am slowly learning how to use Oggl. I love the freedom to choose after I take the photo but have had a little bit of a hard time figuring out how to use all of the features… Next on my list is joining the community. 🙂

  2. Excellant post
