App of the Week – Instagram

in Random Posts

Instagram is a “fast, beautiful and fun way to share your life with friends through a series of pictures.” Everyone loves taking photos and the advancement of cell phone technology has put a decent camera in almost every pocket or purse. Instagram takes photography a step further. When you open the app and press Share, you can snap a photo or choose one stored on your iPhone gallery. Then you can apply one of 17 filters with names such as “Earlybird” and “Inkwell.” These are variations on making your photos look like they were taken with a cheap Polaroid camera in the 1970s. Once you’ve transformed your photo you can either save it or send to Facebook, Twitter or Flickr.

You can even turn your Instagram photos into wall art. Check out their blog to see some truly nice imagery.
