Bands: Turn Your Instagram Snaps Into a Multimedia Slideshow

Posted November 8

Most of us are too young to have been subjected to sit-down slideshows following our friends’ and neighbors’ trips. Well, now you can replicate that experience using your Instagram pictures.

Carousel is a hack conceptualized last weekend at Music Hack Day Boston that plugs into the APIs of Instagram and Soundcloud to allow users to add words to pictures.

Once you let the service connect with your Instagram account, you can choose which pictures to add and in what order. Then, you’ll be given the option to record music or speech using Soundcloud. In the end, you’ll be provided with a link to a virtual boardroom where your images will appear as slides, accompanied by whatever it is you recorded.

The hack is basically a novelty, but could definitely be a cool way for bands to share Instagram photos with their fans (especially since only those with iPhones can access Instagram).

What do you think? Which of your favorite bands on the photo-sharing service do you wish would hit “Record”?
