HOW TO TELL A KILLER STELLER

an unofficial guide

SERIOUSLY, BEFORE YOU BURN ME, I WANT TO SHARE MY EXPERIENCE IN USING STELLER FOR THE LAST 3 WEEKS. I'M USING ANDROID PHONE, I JUST GOT THE BETA VERSION WHEN IT COME OUT.

STELLER IS A GREAT MEDIUM TO TELL VISUAL STORIES YOU CAN USE TEXT, PHOTO, OR VIDEO TO EXPRESS YOUR CREATIVITY

THANKS TO THE THEMES AVAILABLE TO CHOOSE FROM, WE JUST NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THE CONTENT. WHAT STORY TO TELL

And I'm sure that it's a great medium to dump most of the photo collection from your personal project, event, or travel (after your friends in Facebook begged you to stop posting another photo)

Some experiences I would like to share from using Steller:

1. PORTRAIT PRIORITY

For now, you can't view a steller in landscape orientation and Steller only provide pages in portrait. In order to make your photo or video to be displayed in full page, you need to take them vertically.

PHOTO LIKE THIS

AND VIDEO LIKE THIS

Nope. No longer relevant.

2. LOOPING VIDEO

IT'S TRUE THAT WE CAN UPLOAD VIDEO, BUT PAY ATTENTION THE DURATION IS LIMITED TO 15 SECONDS AND IT WILL LOOPING UNTIL ETERNITY

YOU CAN POST A VIDEO LONGER THAN THAT BUT STELLER ONLY PLAYS THE FIRST 15 SECONDS. SO YOU NEED TO PLAN OR TRIM YOUR VIDEO

We can take advantage from this limitation by posting looping video, usually available from sites like imgur.

This video is not longer than one second but we can use it to express something in our Steller.

Just don't forget about the copyright of others. Don't be like this Steller :(

3.SIZE

YOU CAN UPLOAD NO MORE THAN 20 PICTURE OR VIDEO IN ONE IMPORT SESSION. YOU CAN ADD MORE AFTER.

JUST DON'T FORGET

YOUR FRIENDS HAD TO DOWNLOAD ALL THE FILE TO READ YOUR STORY. THE BIGGER YOUR STORY, THE BIGGER DATA THAT YOUR FRIEND MUST DOWNLOAD

One thing about Steller, if the application decides that you've failed to download all of the file, you'll be kicked back to the home screen. You have to repeat the download process to read it.

4. HASHTAGS

THIS IS NO TWITTER BUT STELLER IS ALSO USING HASHTAGS OR # SIGN TO GROUP THEIR SEARCH RESULT. INCLUDE IT IN YOUR STELLER TO MAKE IT DISCOVERABLE.

THE SEARCH PAGE IS YOUR BEST FRIEND TO SEE WHICH HASHTAGS ARE TRENDING. JUST WRITE IN ANY PART OF YOUR STELLER

THAT'S ALL FOR NOW

Thank you for spending 5 minutes of your life to read this steller. I hope I can find another thing to share about this wonderful medium.

Cheers!!

    Nice clue..

    For mobile platform, portrait & square becomes an ideal format. Started from Vine, Snapchat and now Facebook also suggests to use square for mobile video.

  • eldidito

    @aldiansilalahi i think it was Steller decision to make it portrait oriented page. We'll have to deal with that :)

  • eldidito

    @pinot I agree, we don't have to follow TV or monitor orientation.
