Is it that artificially ages photo thing.
I hate that shit. Can't put my finger on why.
but then i got an iphone :|
Don't have iPhone. want iPhone. too poor.
Although I think it has got more to do with people talking about how it looks all 'authentic' despite it just adding another level of contrived artifice to the whole photo endeavour.
I want to make an app that takes the authentic retro feel to its logical conclusion and renders the subject in ochre beetle blood on a granite cave wall. "it is . like. totally. retro."
but it's good for fun and it's not even like you HAVE TO use filters or anything, you can just use it to share your photos online basically
I had just assumed instagram IS the filter.
Didn't realise it was a photo shary thing.
What advantage does it have that say, Facebook doesn't given that I assume most people who are prone to sharing photos online would already have them on facebook.
so you can follow people on there as well and only see their photos which is pretty cool. a lot of people set it up with twitter as well though so that twitter makes a post every time you post something on instagram
It's on Android now and integrated well into Facebook.
It frames your photos nicely so it's quite good for that. To be honest it's nice to have a quick way to put a photo onto Facebook and Twitter at the same time fairly easily.
On the app people can like and comment on the photos too and you get a grid.
It can make quick snaps look good. In that sense it really is like a modern Polaroid camera, since you would never have used those to take a picture of something that really mattered, if you get me.
One good thing about it is that it also keeps the original picture for you so you can go back and alter that or keep it if you wish.
Consider the scoff partially withdrawn.
just a blog for photos? like flickr?
dude drinking champagne with fast food is pretty cool
