So, there’s this app from the International Diabetes Federation, or IDF, that lets you snap a photo and have the World Diabetes Day blue circle placed on top of it… automatically. No photoshopping, no Twibbon-ing, nothing. It’s all right there on your phone, in the app.
Have you taken a #selfie with #BlueCircle for #diabetes? See all those who have – http://t.co/0UFlb7kHUD pic.twitter.com/60tEGi9pWb

Take your photo with your camera right then, or choose a photo from your photo library.. you know… since you might not be selfie-ready at the moment or you might already have an awesome selfie in your library to use…. Don’t want to have your face in it? That’s okay.. you can take a picture of anything, like your diabetes supplies, a BG number, or an infusion site!
You can choose to share your photo or download it (which, of course, you may share it even still after that… I did so I could put it on Instagram too ).
The only thing I wish it would let you do is to place the circle onto a square photo (yeah, I’m TOTALLY a square pic girl), but you can move the circle to where you think it would be there if you cropped the photo for Instagram or a profile picture.
Of course, in the app, you can also give the IDF automatic permission to use your photo in their Blue Circle Selfies Flickr account, to help spread awareness. I did, and a few of mine are already up. But if you change your mind, you can turn it off if you want to later.
I have to say, I love this app. It’s simple and easy and it lets me put the WDD circle on my pictures. Go get it. Play around with it. Add your photo to the other #wdd #bluecircle #selfies and let’s share the blue circle love.
