There are a variety of ways to put your Instagram or Pinterest photos in your sidebar. To jazz things up a bit, this tutorial will show you how to create a photo collage image to link to your Instagram or Pinterest account. This is useful especially if you want your image a little more eye catching and not something that looks like what everyone else is doing. And why not? Your site is unique.
Now you may be thinking, “Oh no…does this require working in Photoshop? That’s too complicated!”.
No, you don’t need to use Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, or Gimp. Yes, those are very complicated software tools and very powerful for advanced photography adjustments or designs created from scratch (e.g., realistic water, replicating a photo portrait digitally drawn, 3D textures and effects, etc.). For most users, you don’t need to use Photoshop for your blog.
There are easier and simpler alternatives. In this tutorial, I chose to use PicMonkey after spending some time with it, it’s quite simple and a friendly interface—and this is coming from a long time Photoshop user.
