Instagram has deprecated its API platform and replaced it with a new Instagram API that runs on Facebook. We have received Facebook’s approval to use this new API and have made the required changes to support this new API in this latest update. As of December 11th, all previous versions of HashPrinter will no longer retrieve photos from Instagram. To continue using Instagram, please update to the latest version and follow these instructions.

“I use a custom setup I designed and built. I got the idea from an old Chanel suitcase I saw at a vintage shop, its wood in white leather with brass tacks” says Tulio, “you have to have something that is not “over the counter” and stands out at the venue.”
Imagesby2 uses the suitcase sitting on a single pole speaker stand, carrying a Nikon D750 DSLR with Sigma 24-70 Art lens, Nikon 950 flash with convertible Dell Laptop and a DNP RXHS1 Printer.
