3 Cool Ways to Use Instagram's #SelfieLapse on Hyperlapse to Create a Great Vid | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

Hyperlapse and #SelfieLapse
 

Hyperlapse is.... a recently unveiled app from the Instagram [that] lets users capture longer video sequences and then easily make them much more compact, by reproducing the video at a much faster rate, ....creating a stunning, cinematic effect.
 

....Hyperlapse has now been optimized to be used with front-facing cameras, creating the phenomenon known as #SelfieLapse.

#SelfieLapse is a lot more than just a gimmicky trend ....there are a lot of opportunities to take advantage of using this feature on the Hyperlapse app.


  • [Show] how a product is built or how it works ...film yourself putting together or even unveiling a new creation on the #SelfieLapse mode and then easily share it to social media as a teaser to create some buzz.
     
  • Take your followers to an event. ..
   
  • Interactive instant testimonials. ....create interaction on social media....documenting their first impression, their first use or even the instant results ...create some interaction between yourself and your followers as well ....

 

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

Looks like this could really be a stand-out app and tool for sharing your message?  Have you tried it?   I'm going to an event this Saturday, and with their involvement, perhaps I will.  :-)  ~  Deb

Powerful Learning: The Government's Animated Gifs for Public Services

Powerful Learning: The Government's Animated Gifs for Public Services | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

It's compelling what an animated gifs can do!  They are also are more performance and cost-effective than standard video or images.  It's a great way to update your programs to the digital space and improve customer interest as well as satisfaction.


Here are some examples:

  • Repurpose user-generated content (Peace Corp)
  • Create eye catching and easy to follow tutorials and instructions - Use animated gifs to explain how people can do a certain task, such as how to sign into a website, or how to set privacy settings on a website. (Seeing is believing with the author's excellent example.)
  • Use U.S. government records to bring history to life - Features images from the last time a gyrocopter flew to Capitol Hill almost 100 years ago
Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

I see creative, expansive use of these digital gifs in all forms of online media, including the government, and also healthcare, education, and just for fun.  It's a great way to combine education and social media too.  ~  Deb

The Best Image Editing Apps for Macs besides PhotoShop

The Best Image Editing Apps for Macs besides PhotoShop | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

There are a handful of good image editors on the Mac, but Photoshop has long been the king of them all.  What else is out there, including good & free?"


I've used an older version of the expensive Photoshop.  Big learning curve.  It is also called bloatware by some and essential, robust by others.


I've also used GIMP, free.


I'm curious about Pixen.   Anyone used it?


See the comments and full article on Lifehacker for more, as well as the commentary on the Lifehacker Facebook page.  Other tools are being suggested.

I'm posting this also to our Social Media Learning Lab Facebook page.
