Photo-sharing app Instagram, best known for vintage filters and pictures of food, lets smartphone users take higher quality and better looking photos from their mobile cameras.
Instagram is easy to use. Take a picture on your phone. Crop it, rotate it, and apply a filter. Maybe add a frame. Then upload your creation to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr, or Foursquare.
On June 20, Instagram got a makeover of its own when it launched Video for Instagram. The update allows users to record, modify, and upload 15-second videos.
Celebrities like Justin Bieber, Kobe Bryant, and Madonna, along with millions of other Instagram users, have already used Video for Instagram. Five million videos were uploaded just 24 hours after the launch.
