How many photos have you taken during the holidays? Better yet, how many photos have you taken that have never seen the light of day, whether printed, shared or even edited? Even though nearly 60 percent of Americans have used social networking sites like Facebook or Twitter, fewer have used those sites to share photos with friends and family. But there are ways to quickly share your inner photo genius with the world.
If you have a digital camera or you’re lucky enough to get a one for the holidays, the easiest way to get started is by transferring photos from the camera to a smartphone or tablet so they can be shared via email, picture message, or social media sites.
Many connected devices have helpful features to make this process easier. For example, the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) offers the power of 4G LTE, portability and has a convenient side-loading function, which means users can take the SD card from a digital camera and plug it into the new tablet for easy photo upload.
Once uploaded, photos can be edited before sending to friends and family members. Using downloadable image editing apps, such as Adobe Photoshop Express and PicSay, users can help crop extra space or remove red-eye before posting or sharing. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1)’s larger HD screen improves this process by making it easier to touch up imperfections.
A few minutes of your time will go a long way to making your holiday photo experience a good one.
