So you’ve amassed yourself quite a collection of photos with clever filters and effects and now you want to show them off. Sure, you could hope for a ton of followers who like and admire them, but what about those who aren’t using Instagram? What to do? Print them out and hang ‘em on your wall! Or make magnets out of them. Or do something else…like make money!
