As we have announced last night, Facebook has paid a lot of money for purchasing Instagram. For those which still don’t know what Instagram is, we have prepared a few words as description.
Instagram is a photo sharing social network which, until a while ago it was accessed mainly by iOS users. However, the guys behind this network have developed a client for Android OS, too, making it possible to be accessed by other users than just iOS owners.
Using the Instagram client application is very simple. It is in fact a camera app which offers you the possibility to add effects in your photos and then to publish them on this social network. There, your photos can be voted by your followers.
If you are for the first time interacting with the Instagram application I am quite confident that you will find it very simple to use and very interesting, in the same time.
The interface is very simple and easy to use, displaying all the buttons at sight. The Instagram app is also offering several tabs and between them you will find a section which will contain the most popular photos, depending on the votes it has received, your followers, and those which you are following, too. In another tab you will be able to see the exact number of your followers or of the people you are following and also the number of photos which have been uploaded.
The camera section in Instagram is offering two buttons: one for activating the Flash and another one for commuting between the 2 camera devices. The settings that we find in the stock version of the camera are missing, therefore you will not be able to change the resolution, the exposure time etc.
The interesting thing about Instagram app is that it provides a huge number of effects which can be added to important images or taken with the smartphone’s camera.
I consider that this is enough with the description of the Instagram social network and the advantages that it provides. Because, many users have accounts within this service and have uploaded many pictures there, they might be afraid of the things that will come or change after Facebook’s acquisition process ends.
Therefore we will show you in this article how all your Instagram photos can be benefit of a backup process.
The Instaport website will help you in order to succeed with this backup process. The procedure should be very simple since the script on this site can download an entire stream of photos and also this can be done based on the criteria that you request.
Obviously, in Instaport, you have to insert all your credentials so that this service could access your account and port all your photos from there. Considering that one possibility resulted from this acquisition is that Facebook to kill this service, you shouldn’t be worried about providing access to your account.
After you have accessed this service, you can set it to download all your Instagram photos that you have uploaded in your account, or just some of them, by providing the time interval or the tag you have used when posting them. Instaport provides you with the possibility to download even pictures that have been uploaded by other users.
After the setting of your download process, you will be provided with a zip archive which contains the requested photos. Therefore, we consider that this is a pretty useful way of backing up your pictures, even if you don’t have to leave Instagram.
