But like seriously, this shit is so contrived. You can make the incredibly mundane look "so profound, dude" with these stupid filters.

How in the fuck. I was just going to start this thread.

trebaker. And is there any easy way to look at feeds through a browser on my computer and not on my mobile?

http://instagram.heroku.com is the first web based client but it's not very user friendly

is there an app that makes your photos look like they were taken with a rolleicord iv yet?

colby, Tuesday, 18 January 2011 22:09 (3 years ago) Permalink

I wish there was an app that made your photos look like they were taken by someone who can't take photos

VegemiteGrrrl, Tuesday, 18 January 2011 22:10 (3 years ago) Permalink

I put that Instagram thing on my phone but then realised it was this whole 'social network' thing and quickly lost interest.

VegemiteGrrrl, Tuesday, 18 January 2011 22:11 (3 years ago) Permalink

You don't have to share or follow anyone.

Pleasant Plains, Tuesday, 18 January 2011 22:19 (3 years ago) Permalink

You don't? Neato.

Sharing and following is lame imo :)

VegemiteGrrrl, Tuesday, 18 January 2011 22:25 (3 years ago) Permalink

I was using it as just another lens app before I realized that there was a whole nother thing behind it.

Pleasant Plains, Tuesday, 18 January 2011 22:27 (3 years ago) Permalink

xp but then the only way to explore is to look at the Popular pix page which is pretty terrible imo

9 months pass...

i have an older ipod touch that doesn't have a camera. can instagram be used to apply filters to photos that are on your device but weren't taken with it?

markers, Friday, 11 November 2011 14:29 (2 years ago) Permalink

I think so. There's a "Load from Library" option.

However, I don't know if the app they're using now will work on an older ipod.

the facebook stock is almost certainly going to be worth much more than its valued at atm when it goes public in a few months

lag∞n, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

but yeah I generally find it annoying when people put those cheap instagram-type filters on their photos. The iPhone camera takes such nice photos so easily, and people ruin them with this hazy nostalgia bullshit.

I don't want to yell 'internet bubble' cause clearly fb and twitter and some things have a value that couldn't really have existed 10 years ago but this is just...a camera filter

fb and google do this kinda thing all the time tho? buying up technology to integrate it into their own platforms... not that i'm saying instagram is worth ONE BILLION DOLLARS *dr evil pinky* but it's kinda their m.o.

J0rdan S., Monday, 9 April 2012 18:29 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah but why do you even need to 'buy up that technology', do they really have a patent on hipster-camera-filters? as hurting said they're not even the first to do this

iatee, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

my guess would be that instagram was working on some kind of expansion and fb caught wind of it and just decided to snatch whatever up whatever it was

J0rdan S., Monday, 9 April 2012 18:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

instagram's "value" such as it is is in the social network aspect, not the filter aspect

this is just...a camera filter

naw its a rapidly growing social network w/50m users whos main utility photo sharing is also facebooks main utility - idk abt the price but its obvs why facebook felt they needed to eat them

lag∞n, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah I guess it makes more sense in that context

ha guessing you all are not instagram users lol xp

lag∞n, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

really its "buying" 30 million users + ownership of the most popular photo-sharing social network. facebook loves photos b/c theyre significantly more interesting than links or status updates, as measured by the # of ppl who click on them and the amount of time they spned

hipstamatic started out as just a camera filter app. they added on social stuff later after instagram took off.

Re: people not really caring about this, I think it's endemic of at least some subset of millennials who just don't seem at all bothered by really overt online invasions of privacy. Which I feel has something in common with "being famous" as a goal that some of these same people pursue. Some sort of complete dissolution of private walls in the value-free (in the "all publicity is good publicity" sense) pursuit of being seen/noticed (see also: the seemingly carefree proliferation of online nudie snaps). It's all part of some strange gestalt that I totally don't get and that marks the most overt sense I've ever had of a distinct generation gap between me and people younger than myself.

Oral Kiosk (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 19 December 2012 00:10 (1 year ago) Permalink

I don't think the issue is necessarily privacy, or even ownership, although these are both concerns. These are images that are already public in some ways, and I don't think the intent is to make them visible to individuals who couldn't already browse and find them.

It's entertaining that flickr is seen as a good alternative, which it mostly is, if you're worried about ownership. But flickr is more highly-searchable and -indexed than most sites, too. If you have public images, it's interesting to see who tags them as favorites or views them. I would get people coming from Google searches or flickr searches for concert pictures I took. Then there were cases where an image would get favorited, you check out their profile, and every image they've added is of a shirtless man. Or they only add images of people smoking cigars.
