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.

wait what does instagram 'do' that is worth one billion dollars

iatee, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:15 (3 years ago) Permalink

it puts...a filter on a photo? and lots of people use it? and that is worth one billion dollars?

iatee, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:16 (3 years ago) Permalink

its free in the app store no one tell zuck

is facebook gonna monetize hipsters?

iatee, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:21 (3 years ago) Permalink

hint: a lot (I don't know exactly how much) of the purchase price is in facebook stock, which is probably not actually worth as much as they say it is

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 (3 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 believe in zimmerman (Hurting 2), Monday, 9 April 2012 18:24 (3 years ago) Permalink

Exactly my thoughts.

iphone camera (at least anything before the 4S) kinda sucks

J0rdan S., Monday, 9 April 2012 18:27 (3 years ago) Permalink

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

iatee, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:27 (3 years ago) Permalink

wasn't there another identical thing called hipstamatic?

i don't believe in zimmerman (Hurting 2), Monday, 9 April 2012 18:29 (3 years ago) Permalink

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 (3 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 (3 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 (3 years ago) Permalink

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

max, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:31 (3 years ago) Permalink

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 (3 years ago) Permalink

yeah I guess it makes more sense in that context

iatee, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:32 (3 years ago) Permalink

I have never used it so I just see the pics *on* fb

iatee, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:32 (3 years ago) Permalink

ha guessing you all are not instagram users lol xp

lag∞n, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:32 (3 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

have you considered making an 'app'

iatee, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:36 (3 years ago) Permalink

brb making an app

lag∞n, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:36 (3 years ago) Permalink

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

or what max and joe said.

so they paid like 35 bucks per user

still smh

no wonder my kids don't want to study math, obviously careers are for fools, i should be sitting around brainstorming the next killer social media platform

the late great, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:38 (3 years ago) Permalink

number of instagram users should be getting a big bump up now that they have it for android too, the fact that they have as many users as they do and it was iphone only until last week is kinda crazy

dmr, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:38 (3 years ago) Permalink

they paid $1 per photograph too

max, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:39 (3 years ago) Permalink

its hilarious b/c its so overvalued, but also because like "one billion" is such a funny number

max, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:39 (3 years ago) Permalink

~1million new instagram users is the first 24 hours of andriod

lag∞n, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:39 (3 years ago) Permalink

and only $55 million per filter

J0rdan S., Monday, 9 April 2012 18:40 (3 years ago) Permalink

so really this is just fb being really, really, really risk averse w/r/t competition

iatee, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:40 (3 years ago) Permalink

hipstamatic could integrate a lot of products (books, prints, postcards) relatively easily. God knows if they'd actually make any money off of them, though.

did I post about how I met one dude who wanted to create some kind of app where you could trade stocks within some graphic framework that had lasers and explosions, like you are in some sort of virtual high octane vid game action movie etrade world or something

i wonder if part of facebooks thinking is theyre abt to go public and theyll be getting more than $35 per user so they could actually make money off the deal as soon as they ipo

that sounds kinda fun xp

In my world, lots of people use Twitter, and I'm only dimly aware that Instagram still exists except as "that thing Facebook bought before WhatsApp"

2 weeks pass...

so I am newcomer to the Instagram thang and I have a boring tech question oh no

the app on my iPhone keeps wanting me to connect my camera roll to my instagram account

I haven't done this yet because I'm afraid that it's just going to put everything in my camera roll immediately up onto instagram and I don't want to share every pic I've ever taken because some of them are just way ugly or boring or, ahem, private etc.

is there a way to connect the camera roll to instagram but to still allow me as the user to determine which pics flow there and which don't? I hope there is, but for now I'm using a cumbersome app called Gramblr to upload pics from a computer to Instagram so that I can be more selective/more of an editor

the tune was space, Thursday, 8 May 2014 14:19 (1 year ago) Permalink

IG will only post what you want, it just needs to ask permission to access that part of your phone first

°ㅇ๐ْ ° (gr8080), Thursday, 8 May 2014 14:25 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah it's just so you don't have to use the camera in IG, you can just take pics like normal and then use IG to upload and edit them if/when you want
