Use Samsung Dex to improve your Instagram photos!

Samsung Dex is an amazing tool which gives a desktop like experience with your smartphone. Well it’s only compatible with the Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus. Though Samsung Dex is not a powerful tool compared to a Mac desktop or Windows desktop, but it can come really handy for certain tasks if time and flexibility are your priority. In this article, you will find how you can use Samsung Dex to improve your Instagram photos. If you do not have a Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus, not to worry, you can also use the method on the device that you have.

Understanding Samsung Dex platform:

Dex is a dock/hub which allows the user to connect a phone (Galaxy S8/S8 Plus), a monitor, a keyboard and a mouse. It can also be connected to an Ethernet connection, but that is not required for the specific task that we are going to perform in this experiment.

By setting up all the above items, one can have the desktop like experience from their phone. So the user can use the Android apps from their phone on a bigger screen and perform the tasks with a much better flexibility with the help of a physical keyboard and a mouse. Also this process is quite convenient. Nobody would like to import one photo from their phone to their computer and edit it through a massive photo editing tool and then again export back to the phone just to upload it to Instagram.

Google play store is highly optimized for Samsung Dex. So a lot of apps are compatible to run on a full screen/desktop screen. So these are the steps that you need to know to improve your photos using Samsung Dex.

  1. Connect your Galaxy S8/S8 Plus to your Samsung Dex station. It will soon provide you two options. Such as “Screen mirroring” and “Samsung Dex”. You can choose either of them. First go with “Samsung Dex” then you can experiment with the “Screen mirroring” option later.
  2. Go to your Gallery and choose a picture that you want to edit. Then click on the “Share via” option and open the photo with one of your favorite photo editing app. These are some of the recommended apps which are the best for Android platform.

a. Snapseed

b. VSCO

c.  Adobe Lightroom mobile

  1. After this you can edit the photo in the same way that you used to do in your phone. But the only difference will be in terms of flexibility and precision. Your editing process will be much flexible and the tools those you will apply will be more precise.
  2. After editing the picture, you may directly upload the picture from your Dex station or you may take the phone back from the Dex station and upload it to Instagram from the phone directly.

I do not have a Samsung Galaxy S8 or a S8 Plus. How this process is useful for me?

A lot of readers might think this on the first place by reading the headline of this article. But it’s all about the concept not the gadget/tool. “Screen mirroring” is the alternative option that is available in almost all Android smartphones. Through this process you can even mirror the screen of your phone on a huge TV and edit your picture in a better way.

We hope you like this article. If you have any other innovative idea that one can implement in improving the quality of their Instagram photos, do let us know. Also follow us on Instagram at @360techlife for more ideas and DIY kind of stuffs.
