Instagram Filters React App

Hey guys, just finished making Instagram Filters App, it’s a pretty small app but would like to get some feedback still. Here’s the link if you want to check it out:

Hey there,

great work so far!

My ideas:

  • when I copy a default Instagram URLs, e.g., the app doesn’t work; so I had to find the image URL with the dev tools. I think this is not user-friendly, because I think 99% of the users would think the app doesn’t work.

So when the user would be able to use a simple URL, I think this would be an awesome thing! :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you :slight_smile: Yes, that’s not gonna work, you are trying to paste url of instagram post and not the actual image, that’s why it doesn’t work. It’s made to work with image url’s.

So do you think that non-developers know how to do this?

I think you are able to find a solution for this (if you want people to use the instagram post URL instead of the direct image URL).

Yes I do think so, because it says paste the image url. First thing when I think of image url is google image. Yeah I get that if I spend some time I can make this work, but the point of the project is to work with image url’s u find online, not instagram posts. That’s same as if i was linking my website and expecting to get image of my project that I have showing on project page but I’m linking the page and not the image itself, doesn’t make sense.
