Instaport.Me Exports Your Instagram Photos So You Can Abandon Ship Before Facebook Sinks It

Instaport.Me Exports Your Instagram Photos So You Can Abandon Ship Before Facebook Sinks It

Did you just hear the news that Facebook paid a BILLION dollars for Instagram? Yeah, it’s crazy. I’m still dumbfounded by the news and mourning the loss of one of my favorite social networks. Sure, Zuck says that Instagram is going to operate as an independent entity and that they’re not going to make any changes. But I’m not buying it. How long will it be til Instagram is pressured to start monetizing their 30million+ users? And how are they gonna make that cheddar? Convert it in to a Facebook esque interface with recommendations and pop-up ads?

My friends, the world is a changing, and Instagram as we know it might not ever be the same again. Maybe I’m panicking worse than the First Class passengers on the Titanic. Maybe everything’s fine. Maybe it’s not. If you’re not certain about the future of Instagram but you want to keep all your sexy faux-vintage photos in your digital safe, there’s an easy-to-use service that will export all of your photos from Instagram. It’s called Instaport.me, and it’s actually pretty awesome.

All you have to do to pry your photos from the vicious hands of The Zuck is go to Instaport.me. Log in to your Instagram account. Choose your export service, and bam!: all of your Instagram photos will be magically downloaded to your desktop in a small zip file. You can use some advanced options to choose a date range of photos to download or sort by hashtag. Heck, you can even download all the photos you’ve liked over the past 18months so you can take your friends’ best photos with your too.

Get to the lifeboats and load up your photos, because I can’t tell if it’s just the three Xyience energy drinks I downed this morning speaking to me, or whether Mark Zuckerberg is a James Bond villain, but panicking is fun, so why not embrace it?

    If Facebook carries over their terms of use to Instagram, Facebook will own the rights to every Instagram photo posted. Close your accounts while you have the chance.
