dear Instagram...

Dear Instagram,

Why are you only available for iphone and ipad? I love the retro-y look you cast over photos and your homage to the beloved Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid aesthetic. You could make my images impossibly hip, but alas, I don't have an iphone or ipad. 


Lucky for all of us not in the iclub, Daniel Box has created a fabulous assortment of photoshop actions that are much like those killer instagram filters. Here are examples of all the filters. The original image is at the bottom. I especially like "sutro" and "brannan." The next step is to get some prints and see how these filters look in the flesh. These will be so cute printed up as postcards to send to the grandparents. Thanks, Dan, for making these!

  1. I love these effects! After they are downloaded into photoshop how do you use them? I can't seem to find where they are .

  2. I do too (thanks, again, dbox)! Thee will be located in the actions section within Photoshop. Go to the Windows menu and select actions. There you should see the folder "instagram action." Hope that helps and have fun!
