Photo inspiration: five sites to find ideas | Social networks

Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, We Heart It and Fotolog are social networks dedicated exclusively to photos. Many publications on these sites can serve as inspiration for users' own images, such as the use of filters, effects, lighting, pose and location, among others. With that, you can make your photo even more stylish and interesting to increase the number of followers. These sites also offer the option of seeking inspiration from photos in a more practical way.

Just use the search tools to search for popular images and find trends according to topics of interest to you, such as travel, animals, cinema, food, decoration, among others. The platforms are available in the web version on the PC and for Android or iPhone (iOS) phones, except for Fotolog, which does not have an app for the Apple phone. Check out the sites used to find good ideas in photos below.

Pinterest is also among the most "inspirational" image platforms out there. On the website, the user finds several Pins that can bring good ideas to your photos. To search for references on the social network, just go to the Explore section and search for the topics you are most interested in.

The creation of folders, known as Pinboards, is a way to store inspirations of images. The user can make folders for each subject and add photos of other users. Another useful tool is Seguindo, a feed that shows images of who the user follows.

Tumblr is another social network that inspires people with your photos. The website, which mixes blog and image, became popular with "Tumblr style photos": people who copy hair, makeup and blogger poses.

Like other sites focused on image, Tumblr also facilitates the search for inspiring photos in categories. In addition, users can follow others to receive new ideas for images in the Feed.
