'Hippo Pics' is a new app that allows Instagram users to connect with professional photo editors to help them take their pictures to the next level. While Instagram can make any person feel like a seasoned photographer, it is not as easy as it seems to create professional-quality photos. This app helps users enlist the help of real professionals to put the finishing touches on their Instagram photos.

Hippo Pics is a collaborative app that helps connect amateur photographers with professional photo editors. To use the app, users simply submit their photos and wait for an expert to claim them. Users are encouraged to submit photos of landscapes and other artistic portraits instead of selfies or food pictures. Once an editor has claimed a photo, they can manipulate the image to turn it into a profession-quality picture.

The platform ultimately uses the Tinder-style concept of matchmaking to connect individuals in the art community for a unique type of collaboration.
