Telling Visual Stories With A New App: Steller


Most lifestyle blogs have one thing in common - they predominately tell visual stories. Pictures are an important way to communicate and transmit emotions quicker and easier than words. Now if you add short video clips to this and a few chosen words, what you get is a little visual story that manages to take you away in an instant. If you imagine all this on your smartphone, you get the visual story on-the-go, wherever, whenever! This is where the brand new Steller app comes into action - now it is as easy as a few clicks on your smartphone to tell your visual story.


I've joined Steller recently and uploaded a few first stories. I like how easy it is to come up with a visual story when you go through your pictures and videos on your phone. This can be anything shot in your home, favorite places, cooking, your travels etc. You can group your stories into collections and use known social interactions: you can follow others and be followed, you can like stories, share any found story with your followers and share your own or other stories on various social media accounts.


What is inherent to most of the published stories so far is a high quality of images and a compact length - the majority of stories is told in seven to ten images. When setting up a story, Steller offers you various templates to lay over your images - you can add headlines, short paragraphs, you can crop pics and more.


If you love to snap along nice pictures and if you are a visual storyteller, I strongly recommend you join this fab new app and get inspired and inspire others with your stories. You will find Steller in the app store on your smartphone. I am waiting for you - in Steller!
