Hashtags

Have you noticed this little # sign on social platforms?


Hashtags are used in social media sites such as Twitter, Google +, Pinterest and our favorite- Instagram. Hashtags are searchable within the platform that it's used.

With Instagram, when you click on a #hastag created to describe the image, you will be redirected to a page where you can view all public images tagged with the same hashtag.

Example: #persnicketyprints is a hashtag. Any photo used with this hashtag will appear in the #persnicketyprints feed.


We describe so many photos & memories by one little word.  Why not add a quick hashtag to your printed photo?

Hashtag Photo Ideas:
1. Mini books with the same hashtag/word. A mini flip book all about #summer or #camp?
2. A project life "section" organized by hashtags. (#happydays, #saddays, #work, etc)
3. 2013 Calendar with each month described by a hashtag
20 Hashtags in .png format to help get you started!

    1. Hi Joz, we will work up a quick tutorial on how to easily use these .png files. It is easy to convert them to a brush -
      Once opened in PS, go to Edit > define brush preset

    1. Hi Tammy.
      A .png is a file with a transparent background-- so you can use it ontop of another image. Most software programs are .png compatable. In photoshop, you would create a new layer above the image you would like to "stamp" the hashtag onto... import, or copy and paste the hashtag onto this new layer. You can change the color, opacity, etc. Then flatten and save. I will have the team work up a little tutorial and post it here.
      thanks for the heads up-- we shouldn't always assume everyone knows how to use these!!
