A picture is worth a thousand words: Share your arctic photos on http://arctic.au.dk

It is fast and easy to show your research on our webpage using Instagram. The picture flow will help show both colleagues at ARC and the rest of the world what is going on at the Centre. The idea is to display pictures from field work, conferences, laboratory experiments, meetings and so on together with a small text piece describing the picture. Text and picture can also be used for highlighting a new finding or telling others about an outcome of a meeting.

Here is a quick guide:

  • Download the Instagram app to your smartphone.
  • Login with the username: auarctic and pswd: arctic

The menus are slightly different depending on whether you download to iPhone or Android.

  • Tab the photo icon (the one i the middle).

Here you can either snap a photo or choose a photo from your photo gallery on your phone. If you want to share a photo from your gallery, click on the icon to the left of the blue circle.

  • Edit the photo or just continue by clicking on the arrows in the top-right corner (on iPhone, click ‘next’).
  • Write your text in the small field next to the picture and press V- symbol in the top-right corner (Android) or ‘share’ at the bottom (iPhone).
  • Done! The picture will appear in the website gallery after about 30 mins.

We hope that many of you will contribute to making auArctic an interesting account to follow.
