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

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 (3 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.

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 18:21 (2 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 (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 believe in zimmerman (Hurting 2), Monday, 9 April 2012 18:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

Exactly my thoughts.

J0rdan S., Monday, 9 April 2012 18:27 (2 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 (2 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 (2 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 (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

max, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:31 (2 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 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah I guess it makes more sense in that context

iatee, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

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

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

max, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

brb making an app

lag∞n, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:36 (2 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.

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 (2 years ago) Permalink

they paid $1 per photograph too

max, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

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

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

lag∞n, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

and only $55 million per filter

J0rdan S., Monday, 9 April 2012 18:40 (2 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 (2 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.

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

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

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
