@replies Now Supported On Stipple
By Casey McCallister
In the past, Stipple has had no way of alerting a user that they are mentioned on an image - until now! Last week, Stipple launched user-tagging. Now you can let other Stipple users know when you’re mentioning them on a Stippled photo.
To use, simply begin my typing the @ symbol (shift + 2 on your keyboard), then continue by typing the name of the user you wish to tag. Stipple will begin to populate a list of possible suggestions as you continue to type. Choose the username you wish to tag and it will become a link.
User tagging is supported in all caption and comment fields.
For questions on how to use, email us at email@example.com any time.
Stipple x the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games
By Abby Wilcox
Here at Stipple, we’ve been fascinated with this year’s Sochi winter Olympics, for a chance to watch stellar athleticism in a country faced with the shadow doubt about it’s infrastructure and capability to host such an event. Valdimir Putin spent a whopping $51m to build a glistening ski resort and several sports venues from scratch. In the two weeks that ensued, we witnessed triumphs and falls by the world’s most skilled athletes in winter sport. US snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg won the first gold of the games with his triumph in the men’s snowboard slopestyle. Or who can forget US figure skater Ashley Wagner’s displeasure about the score she had received in the team figure skating event (there have since been many Internet memes made about it). We’ve curated a set of images to highlight some of Sochi’s most memorable moments, so touch the images below to learn more about each photograph.

In the vast world of mobile, Stipple’s iOS app stands out with it’s platform for creating the interactive image. It’s cleanly designed, intuitive and responsive to the updates from the Stipple desktop. While out on the go, you have the ability to tell a story through your image, adding photos, video, and even Facebook and Twitter profiles. You can also view stats on all of your images directly from your mobile iPhone or iPad, which includes image views, engagements, likes and shares, keeping you connected to your images at all times. In a snap, you can also Facebook or Tweet your photo story to share with the world. For those of you who have just downloaded the mobile Stipple iOS app, we’ve put together a short tutorial on how to use all of the awesome features. Mouse over the screenshots of the mobile app below for descriptions of how to create a Stippled photo story using your iOS device.
Above: This is the first step to starting a Stipple photo story. You have the option to photograph one directly through the Stipple app (which in this case you can add video) or you can choose images from your camera roll. I decided to create my photo story from some of the images that I took with my iPhone while on a photoshoot for Gilt SF in Sonoma at Spoon Bar. With your finger, click on the images in the order in which you want them to appear. You can also delete images from your photo story by clicking on them again, and the order number will disappear. Mouse over the image above to learn more about adding photos and the video function.

The 2014 Winter Olympics are upon us, and photographers from all over the globe are gathering in Sochi to cover the events. Dan has interviewed a few of the top photographers at the games, including in the posts Stippled photographs of their gear showcasing the individual pieces.
