I must have been good last year because for Christmas I got a iPod Touch from Santa. I've gotta say, now I totally get what all the fuss is over the iPhone. The iPod touch has all the functions of the iPhone but unable to make calls. The apps......they're endless & I could search for them all day, so I found one I must share. For anyone who's into photo's & sharing them you need to check out the Instagram application from Apple. I was just browsing photo editing apps & came across this one. I like how you could instantly apply a retro treatment to your photos, as if your looking at your parents old 60's & 70's snapshots. Here are a few I've done so far.
This function allows you to either take a photo with your device, or import images you have stored on your computer. All of the above photos are actually taken with my regular Canon SLR camera & I just applied the filters using Instagram.
After a couple of days of using the app. I began to fully understand how it really works. It's set up like a photo social network like Twitter & Facebook. In fact you have the option to publish your edited Instagram photos & share them in FB, Twitter, Flicker, Tumbler, Posterous & Foursquare. (Most of those I've never heard of) Others who use Instagram can follow you & comment on your photos, like Twitter & FB. I'm pretty stoked that I stumbled upon this cool "photo networking" site. Even if you aren't a photographer (& you have an iPhone or 4G iPod touch) you should give Instagram a try & we can follow each others retro styled journey in photo snapshots!
