By Lois Green, Thursday, April 14, 2016

We're all familiar with Instagram, one of the most popular photo-sharing applications. But have you been using its alternative called EyeEm? EyeEm is a free photo sharing app to discover places & things you love. And it comes with high-quality filters and frames that can be used while taking a photo instead of after the picture has already been taken. To help you get started, here is a guide that tells you how exactly EyeEm can share and edit iPhone photos.

Discover & Follow New Photos and Photographers

The Discover section in EyeEm is a place that offers you a bunch of options to discover photography news and find amazing photographs from different categories such as nature, street, underwater, etc. These displayed albums are created by different photographers. So it's also a place that offers you great inspiration and photo exhibition. You can follow the photographer or album you like by clicking on the Follow button, then the latest updates will be promoted daily in your app.

Take Photos

The biggest difference between EyeEm and Instagram is that when taking photos with EyeEm, you can change filters by swiping left & right and change the frames by swiping up & down. There are 12 different filters and 14 frames to choose from. And it also provides you a preview of what your photo will look like before it is taken. You can also just shoot a photo in normal mode and then edit it with other filters after it is taken.
