4 Free Photo-Sharing Alternatives For Anyone Who Left Instagram

Hopefully you've been able to try out one or a few of the 6 photo editing apps we shared earlier. Now we're following up with some options to take those processed images and share them online, with some of the best photo sharing apps (not called Instagram)...

After Instagram's Terms of Service fiasco late last year, which saw many high profile users deleting their Instagram accounts, there were many people wondering which photo-sharing service to use. Instagram is still a good app, but it doesn't take long before you hit the app's limits.

Naturally, there is also a vibrant community in Instagram. While Instagram backpedaled and changed back their TOS, many users have left the service for good. Here are the best free photo-sharing services around. In order to start using these services, download all of your Instagram photos using Instaport and start anew using one of the apps below:

Flickr
By far, one of the best alternatives to Instagram for sharing photos via smartphone is Flickr. The redesigned app makes it easy to archive and share your photos on different social networks, including Twitter and Facebook. The app offers filters equal, if not superior to Instagram. Flickr also sweetened the deal by announcing a 3-month free Pro account promotion for all users (even current users benefit from this deal). Unlike Instagram, one isn't limited to cropping images into a square, offering a variety of shapes and sizes to upload.

EyeEm
EyeEm is available for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. Unlike Flickr, which tries to do everything, EyeEm might suit users who seek a service simplified similar to Instagram. Once you've shot your photos, EyeEm starts to shine because your phone's default camera system has got more options than EyeEm's lackluster shooting mode. EyeEm offers many filters and sharing options, including a browser based viewer URL, and you'll be easily able to find your friends on different social networks.

Snapspeed
The Snapspeed app is universal, so you can easily access a more polished version on your iPad while still snapping away on your iPhone. The app offers some more advanced image editing features, which is perfect if you want to go further with your mobile photography. There's also an Android version.

Tadaa
Tadaa stands out with some advanced edition options, turning simple snapshots into memorable photographs. The selective edition and tilt-shift options make it definitely a useful tool to have on your iPhone. For now, this app is only available for iOS.
