You may have noticed people tagging their photos with #ndpatterns on Instagram. The hashtag is related to a set of patterns that Neal Dieker (@nealdieker on Instagram) shares freely with the community. These patterns are usually added to existing photos to include a really cool graphic effect.
The patterns are available to anybody. Simply head over to Neal’s Instagram profile at @nealdieker and download the patterns from the link in his bio. You need to enter your name and email address, but as previously mentioned, the resources are free.
The best thing to do would be to go via the Instagram app on your device so that you can access it directly when editing your shots.
Here are some of my personal #ndpatterns shots, to give you an idea of what you can do with them.
