Woah. . . Dude. . . Trippy. . . If you're browsing someone's photo stream try and swipe from left to right when you are on one of their posts. Totally insignificant in the scheme of important things in the world. Blew my mind though. If someone tells me it's been there since version 1.0 I'll feel pretty dumb.
  • It hasn't!

  • Lol i don't think so!

  • Nothing happens for me :( must be an iPhone only thing

  • ikeng 5y ago

    Cool

  • Haha! No I don't think so. I've only noticed it since the update :)

  • Swiping left brings up the comments. Don't know if that is new or not

  • ongaku 5y ago

    Woah!! I didn't know that!!!!

  • ongaku 5y ago

    I would just press back!

  • Thats totally new

  • Guess doesnt work on android!!! @joshjohnson

  • Must be iphone only

  • I've noticed this for awhile! *่ Go on your profile click a photo swipe to the left and it take you to a comment!

  • Nope. Works on the iPad, too. Just have to press a little harder.

  • And if you swipe a comment it'll allow u to mark it as spam or reply.

  • Works on your feed, too.

  • That just blew my mind

  • lumu81 5y ago

    Cool I just did it

  • Whoa, swiping also gets you to the comments.

  • @joshjohnson swipe left and it takes you to the section to leave a comment

  • Does not work on android.

  • Wow!!!!

  • I've also noticed when you hold down on a persons username on the photo they've commented on, it will instantly @ them in the reply box. Awesomeness.

  • Wow I'm kinda buzzed and that made my night #makenosense

  • gio100 5y ago

    It's a new featured, I just check on my wife's IG she still 2.5.1

  • and right to left to comment )

  • @cclozano @skinny_brown_eyes @jc_4_life Cool. Didn't know that. Thanks.

  • @joshjohnson Don't know if this is commonly known but holding your finger on a user name will open the comment box and populate it with the user name.

  • Awesome

  • @joshjohnson And I only noticed the swipe actions after the last update.

  • 🌀🌀🌀😝😜👍🌀🌀🌀

  • wow!!

  • @garymon16 cool! Thanks!

  • Great to know now! Thanks!

  • Tks JJ

  • Ohhhhh!!!!

  • Thanks for the tip!

  • It works in the newsfeed too!

  • No no that Is new, figured that out when this update came out. :)

  • @jc_4_life how do you get that bold font??

  • Doesn't work for android :/

  • *่OH WOW THAT'S SO COOL

  • Swipe the other direction for comments

  • @garymon16 didnt know. that is cool tho! cheers

  • What what what!?!?!

  • Oh hay! That's a little Easter egg. Thanks for that :)

  • I didn't know that, very cool.

  • Pretty cool. Did you noticed they did something similar with the Facebook app?

  • fe3dy 5y ago

    Cool!! Didn't know I could do that👊😊thanks Josh!!!

  • While you're in the comments you can do the same thing. Took me a minute to figure out how to delete and reply without typing the name 😁

  • @aliguacamole and I just had this conversation the other day! haha!

  • If you swipe left on your feed in front of a pic, you'll be able to comment! Whuuuut

  • It hasn't, there's been tons of swiping stuff added

  • Boy is my face red. I have been going the long way for sure.

  • News to me, too!

  • Yeah, I dot think you could do that until the last update. Now we all know just in time for another update, haha!

  • @captivated_by_this It's a little hard to explain but basically you go to add another keyboard. You add "Thai" then on the Thai keyboard you click the star * then the dash ่ then it should work hope this helps!

  • Josh.. I just tried and can't do it ~and yes I have updated.

  • Ha no idea you could do this.

  • owleye 5y ago

    My 12 year old just showed me I could tap a photo to like it. I had no idea! Lol I've been on instagram over a year! She just joined a few months ago!

  • *่ok I'm trying this out

  • ryocor 5y ago

    Josh you r very good at taking a screen shot like that 😃

  • You can swipe a comment too to delete or report!

  • Poor android, no such fun haha!

  • aneel 5y ago

    Apparently it only works when you are browsing your own gallery. Wish it would work for other user profiles too. Swiping right after viewing a photo in pop page takes you back to the pop page. Long time Josh. Hope all is well with you. Btw, you are still rocking here.

  • aneel 5y ago

    Just checked and it does work on other user profiles too though you have to be in their profiles for it to work. It would have been nice had we swipe on pop or our feed and it would take us to their profile page

  • <---android user *_*

  • It works for both feed and profile on iPhone! Cool thanks. Something so simple can change ones life. :-)

  • Coming to an Android near you, soon... ? I hope. l:

  • Yeah, it drives me crazy. :) I'm constantly ending up back at the profile when what I wanted to do was reply to a comment, but first I have to hit the comment button before swiping on a name exposes the reply arrow. :: sigh :: First world problems.

  • That is cool! I had no idea.

  • Nah that's a new thing.

  • And try to swipe from right to left, you can comment on the shot without scolling to the end of the post... Just found out! 😂😂😂

  • Hahahahahahaha that totally just blew my mind! I had no idea it did that!!!

  • Does anyone really knew it before???? Crazy!

  • @joshjohnson @burningme Woah, awesome! Very cool. @richtatum Lol. :)

  • I don't understand why you can swipe to go Back but not to go Forward. It happens to me by accident all the time and then I lose my place. Definitely not a fan of this "improvement"!

  • ncloe 5y ago

    Haha. Yeah. I noticed that when I was trying to swipe for a comment. Also, if you swipe the other way in the comment section it'll bring you back to the feed.

  • lol haha i noticed it too a while back :)

  • bdrizz 5y ago

    woahhhhhh

  • It must be an iPhone thing because mine won't stinkin' do it!!!! :-)

  • Me too😳😁

  • I did that and something else happened it acted like i "back" button

  • Haha I didn't know!! Love "discovering" stuff like that. I'd have been mind blown too : )

  • OMG!! I didn't know that either!! Love those little things that make my cyber life just that little bit easier 👍 thanks for sharing!!!

  • Mine goes to comments on iPhone and iPad, not to next photo.

  • wow 😃😃 thanx

  • @jessicaszeplany - if you are on the photo page and swipe left, it takes you to comments for that post...swipe right and it takes you back to artists home page (or maybe the page you were on before)

  • Check that...it only takes you the artist's home page if you came to the photo that way...

  • First really Good Thing that i found Out a few days ago. Nevertheless responding on comments was easier in earlier versions

  • Yes I agree @rawpiqs. Because now when I try to reply I keep accidentally swiping right out of the comments entirely :(

  • Once again... not on android. Ugh. It's getting harder and harder to resist total Apple takeover.

  • Huh. Who knew? 😄

  • an7ed 5y ago

    @joshjohnson honestly didn't know that...wonder how many do...

  • Same as the swipe to comment... :)

  • djrage 5y ago

    I didn't know that either.

  • Wow! Lol

  • Me neither

  • jamove 5y ago

    Wow

  • @briandanielbaker yes, it needs to go forward too - I've had the same problem

  • I like the upgrade ☺

  • azysko 5y ago

    No it's new in 3.0😉

  • Thx! Didn't know that!

  • rero91 5y ago

    And from right to left you start adding a comment

  • I think that "swipe" action should change between stream photos like iPhone default photo app

  • News to me too...cool

  • They've also changed the way you delete comments as well, you swipe left to right and choose the trash can😊

  • ALSO when you go to comment you can swipe someones name and it tags them or you can report their comment

  • 👍

Does anyone know why the waves would form a shape like this around the human body? Or is this a case of some wonderful and creative editing to enhance the image? .

Hello, JJ family! Doris @dodovo here with a feature for today’s “Best of Last Week” theme. Very impressive lines, shapes, and reflection in this photo of a building facade in Singapore. I’m in awe of how sharp and symmetrical the reflection is. Awesome shot, @boluddha! A huge thanks to Anarchy page @jj_geometry for the original highlight. Please stop by their galleries and show them both some JJ love! •

Radiant photo for today’s theme! Photo by @mister_31. Thanks to @jj_editor_georgiak.

I am gonna guess this was shot with a mobile device because of the great low perspectives. Mobile phones are wonderful for this approach. What are you guys think, mobile or DSL our camera? Put your vote in the comment below.

Happy Sunday from @ruddy24 and @grammy1’s new house in Maine. Miranda and I are visiting the cousins for thanksgiving this week. The the two girls and Miranda were nice enough to volunteer to model for me this morning.

Miranda is in the middle Devin is on the left and Anna is on the right. I’ll let you scroll through our #iPhoneX photo shoot slideshow and guess who is “trouble” out of the three in this picture. 😂. It’s the same one who locked herself, by accident, in a bathroom for 2 hours! 😬.

Hi #jj world! 😀👍🏻. @joshjohnson here with you, posting from the TSA line at Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta Airport. WE MADE IT! 😉 My kid’s very patient and understanding. Thanks for pushing my bag in line, while I post honey. 😘.
.
Miranda and I are headed up to Maine for American Thanksgiving. We spend most thanksgivings with @grammy1 and @ruddy24. We’re super excited this year because there’s a new hot tub! 😃.
.
Today’s general photo tip is look for tension and contradictions. Whether you’re on vacations or shooting at home, things that don’t usually go together can make for great pictures. Vacations are kind of a loaded with contradictions aren’t they? Happy to be standing in line? Yep. Only on vacation.
.
Often both the most relaxing and most stressful times in our lives happen on vacation. Sometimes you might find yourself in a smelly cab and the next moment in a refined and cultures museum. That’s part of what makes travel interesting.
.
Oops. They are calling our flight! Got to go! Talk to you again from Maine! Vacationland! - @joshjohnson.
