Today I’m going to do a special blog for a photo sharing app called Tadaa. The recent buyout with Instagram to Facebook has gotten everyone upset, a lots of people started to get Streamzoo and EyeEm accounts. My friend Tiffany (@tiffany916) told me to get a Tadaa account and find her. I didn’t think getting a Tadaa account was going to turn into an “up yours Instagram !” I was trying to find new blog readers and followers since I was getting tapped out from focusing on Instagram so much. It’s actually one of the nicest photo sharing apps in the market. I was really surprised with all the features this sharing app has to offer. What I really love the most is seeing the photos on a larger scale in HD (high definition). Something Instagram has lacked for a long time, maybe with the $1billion dollars they got from Facebook. They can actually improve the viewing of photos on Instagram. I really got spoiled from looking at photos on Path, Streamzoo and EyeEm. The photos look so much nicer on those apps and give them the justice they deserve in photo sharing. One last thing I wanted to share with all you guys about Tadaa. I e-mailed them because everyone was talking about the message of being slow because of the influx of accounts being created over the last week. I emailed them on my lunch break at work. I told them how I liked their app and keep up the great work. I wanted to give these guys a positive message because they got in over their head with all these new accounts popping up. I walked back to work and clocked in from lunch. Then my iPhone makes the email notification noise. I get an email back from the guys on Tadaa in 5 minutes !!! It was nice to get a response so quickly and not a automated response. It was someone actually emailing me back telling me AWESOME and THANKS ! I was really amazed and touched by the simple response from Tadaa. This was something I needed to share with everyone. This is why I always express to email, write reviews and going to their pages and contacting them is really important.
I’m going to show you how to use the camera part of this app. I’ll be shooting some random photo out in good old El Cajon. Tap on the center button to take the shot. On the right hand side is the zoom slider, frame and film om the lower right side.
After you take the shot then the edit button pop up and the camera button becomes the save button.
The first one is Adjustment where you do the normal adjusting and simple editing.
The second button is Clarity, that’s where you do the tone map process of bring out the details in your photo. You have the tap on the checker board button to actually use the slider button on the Clarity.
The Drop button is the Tilt Shift edit, you have 2 different tilt shift options. One is parallel and the second is the circle. I’m going to use the parallel edit. It’s a little trick to use at first but there are drawings on each of the edits that tell you what they do and how to work them. There are also other adjustments in how you want to do the blur.
Frame button is your different assortments of frames to overlay on top of your photo.
Film button is your different types of filters to use on your photo. There are a lot of different options of film filters.
Apply all the edit changes and post your photo and TADAA !!!
Here I am on Tadaa and everyone else I follow on my feed.
My edited photo saved to the camera roll from Tadaa.
You can also save the original and it saves pretty high resolution. The resolution is 1875 x 2500 with is 3mp…so if anyone complains that it’s low resolution. It’s not that low !!!
When you hit the plus button that’s how you comment and like a photo. You can also take more pictures, add a surprised look face and…
…send them to Facebook, Twitter, email and/or send it as a text message. That’s pretty impressive to be able to do all these functions with this photo sharing app. The best part of this photo share network…YOU OWN THE RIGHTS TO YOUR PHOTOS !!! That’s right all of the photos you post belong to you and only you. There is a button you tap on saying your photo must belong and copyrighted to you in ordered to post, if not they will delete your photo and ban you keep posting photos that don’t belong to you.
There are 2 section on the AWESOME PAGE, it’s Tadaa’s popular page. Which I find really cool because there are so many great photo/images to look at on this page. It’s a very awe inspiring page to look at all the time…something most of us missed on Instagram. I’m still not sure what the “LUCY” section is for, hopefully someone can answer that.
Last part I wanted to add is you have any problems with the app, you can always tap on the Clear Caches button. It helps most of the time and will get your stream running smoothly. I hit it about once a day. It will back you out of the app like when an app crashes. Then you have to log back into the app.
I hope this blog will help with questions about this photo sharing app. You can click HERE to get to Tadaa’s website.
