(music playing) Hi there! My name is Justin Seeley and I'm a Staff Author here at I'd like to welcome you to this course on sharing photos with Instagram. Throughout the course, I'll be taking you through the basics of the Instagram application and showing you how to do things like composing and taking photos, editing your photos using Instagram's filter system, adding and removing borders, and adjusting focus and adding HDR-like enhancements. In addition to working with the mechanics of the Instagram application, we're also going to dive into the social aspect of the app as well.

This is where I'll show you how to share your photos across multiple networks like Facebook and Twitter, and even integrate your Instagram photos with other services like Foursquare and Flickr as well. Finally, we're going to explore the community that exists inside Instagram. Over the last few years there's been an explosion of photographers on Instagram and along with that boom in users comes a ton of cool features and add-ons being developed by third parties. Some of these community features include tracking your Instagram stats to show you how many people are viewing your photos, joining fellow Instagrammers for a photo walk-- also known as an InstaMeet-- and even getting high quality prints of your Instagram shots delivered right to your front door.

Instagram is really taking the mobile photography world by storm and there are a ton of cool things that you can do with it. I'm excited to share all of these things with you in this course. So if you're ready, grab your mobile device and let's get started sharing photos with Instagram.
