How to save high-resolution versions of your Instagram photos

Once you've posted a photo using Instagram, the incredibly popular social photo network, it's locked into its tiny filtered form. Instagram doesn't even let you download it after the fact — you need to screenshot it or resort to a third-part ripper, even for your own photos. What Instagram does let you do, however, is set it to save a high resolution "2048x2048" version of your final, filtered photo to your camera roll as you post it. (I put the resolution in quotes because it really seems to vary, sometimes a bit lower, sometimes higher.) To save those original photos, all you have to do is enable the feature.

How to get good audio while shooting video on your iPhone

It's easy to take and edit quick videos on the iPhone, but getting great audio isn't always as simple as pointing and shooting.

Here are a few of my favorite ways to avoid tinny or terrible sound when shooting iPhone video.

How to disable notifications for shared Photo Streams

iCloud Photo Sharing is a great way to share photos with friends and family who also use iPhones and iPads. However, the more shared Photo Streams you are a part of, the more notifications you will receive. That means each and every time someone adds photos, you'll be notified. If at some point you find you're getting too many notifications, you can easily disable them on a stream by stream basis, or stop notifications from the Photos app completely.

How to use Photos for iPhone and iPad: The ultimate guide

The Photos app is a repository for all the pictures and videos you shoot or save to your iPhone or iPad. Not only can you use the iOS Photos app to organize and find those special moments and memories you've recorded, but you can use it to share them directly, through social networks, on the big screen, as prints, and more. You can also edit them to enhance their looks, add filters, fix redeye, and crop them just so. And if you're running iOS 8, you can do even more, including much more advanced, granular editing, and Photos Extensions so other apps and their editing tools can hook right in. Whether you're new to iPhone or iPad and want to get started, or you just want a handy link to share with your friends, family, and colleagues who might just be getting started, you've come to the right place!
