Picture Sharing Made Easy: The Seahorse App

Hello Darlings!

Being Twenty-Six I feel like every time I scroll down my Facebook feed I spot another engagement, and another wedding hashtag so you can follow the images that are posted on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. I know from experience that trying to save all of the pictures so that they are in a central location and available for everyone to use is a huge hassle. Insert Seahorse.

The super simple Seahorse app is the solution to this hassle. Available on IOS and Android, the free app is super easy to use and allows the user to create “scenes” to share with their friends. Through email you can invite additional users to upload photos to your created scene so everyone can have access to every photo of an event. So long are the frustrations of asking everyone to email their pictures or upload to separate hosting accounts, Seahorse has everything streamlined!

I think the easiest way to explain how truly simple the signup process is, is to show you a bit of step by step (of course there are Tinkerbelle pictures involved) of how the process of signup to uploading progresses!

I started by downloading the app onto my iPhone and then signing up with email. You get a confirmation email and then you are ready to go!

Next you can sync the app with your phone’s photo library, or take a picture using the app.  If uploading pictures from syncing your phone’s library you can click through and select which photos to include in your scene. Give the scene a name and you’re ready to go! Adding friends is simple, there’s an add friends option in the app and it syncs with your email contacts. Click which friends you’d like to share it with and then click okay. Your request will show as pending until the friend signs up with Seahorse and has access to the pictures.

If you happen to take lots of photos that aren’t on your phone’s camera (as a blogger my DSLR comes with me everywhere!) there is a super simple way to upload pictures to the app from your computer as well. You can sign in at and then just drag, drop, and click upload!

Overall, I have loved this app and the fact that it is so convenient and so simple to use. Do you have a favorite photo app that you can’t live without? Let me know in the comments below!
