It allows users to snap a picture then apply a digital filters and transform it look and feel then post it into a variety of social program such as Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. It’s fast and beautiful. Unfortunately, instagram now still only support iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Android users. It is can be taken from iTunes App Store for Apple’s product and Google Play for Android. So, how about people doesn’t have iOS or Android? By having a little touch up with Adobe Photoshop, we can transform photos look like instagram photos.
