Would be great to have an email option and a save to camera roll option without posting. In Both of these it would be great to include a setting that allows for size options from small to full size.

Top three Instragram needs:

1) Ablity to save to camera rolls at full device resolution.
2) Ablity to e-mail from the share page.
3) Ablity to keep certain pixs private. (ie-family, kids)

Made a thread specifically for point 3. It's been buried though.

Concerning point 1, I'd love to be able to save to the camera roll as well, but I think they need to remove the option to upload from the camera roll. Unless it can make sure that it's only pulling in those images that have been taken in Instagram. Can the EXIF data pinpoint the program used as well as the device?

@samdavis: I don't think I understand why I shouldn't be able to post any pic from my camera roll through Instagram...?! Why should they remove this feature...?!

@MILE - So long as the app can read the EXIF data and disallow images NOT taken with an iPhone or other mobile phone (really should just be an iPhone though), I don't have an issue with the use of the camera roll.

This is a mobile app though and if people want to post DSLR photos with massive DOF somewhere, how about they just post it on Flickr or one of the many other sites reserved for real photography.

Instagram was touted as a camera app for the iPhone that was like Hipstamatic w/ better sharing features but people keep posting professional grade images that CLEARLY weren't taken with the iPhone and it seems to go against what the app is supposed to be about.

hey matt,

on 1), see the screenshot Kal Michael posted. 2) will be included in the next release, and 3) is something we will certainly consider implementing in future versions.

What I usually do now is take picture with the standard camera app, then load that in Instagram, apply a filter and then post it -- would be much nicer to have Instagram save the pics in the backrgound...

This is EXACTLY what I'm doing now as well. In anyway, this is probably an 'ideal' workflow, because you will always have the original, in full resolution. You can also pipe this to another app, for example I use TiltShiftGen a lot, and then finally to Instagram.

Yeah, but it just takes way too long when you're on the go and want to snap a quick photo -- it would be way more convenient (as in "much faster") if Instgram did that in the background, like some apps already do...

I often take photos from the camera app, then choose how to crop them later using instagram, so I like the ability to pull from my camera roll. I'm ambivalent about restricting instagram uploads to just iphone photos. Using a different camera isn't really the point of Instagram, but I don't feel strongly enough to say it should be restricted.

I'm really interested in the idea of saving to the camera roll without posting, because it allows you to run your photos though instagram a number of times (easily). The hacks I've found to do this aren't reliable or fast, but I think it opens up a huge variety of looks.

I really hope they do implement an option to keep some photos private. It's sort of ridiculous that it isn't an option. It's the one thing stopping me from using this app to it's full potential. Unfortunately I have to keep all my pictures private, which means no one can follow me.

I totally agree with point 1 and 3.
