Codebreaker

Tired of taking pictures for The Man?

Marc Sanchez Apr 10, 2012


It’s been less than 24 hours since Facebook announced that it will purchase photo-sharing service, Instagram. Both companies say they’ll try not to muck up a good thing, but people are already talking about fleeing. If you’re the type of person who thinks Instagram’s first record is the best, and all the rest are garbage, and you can’t believe this app that you’ve supported since day one betrayed you by selling out to The (28-year-old) Man, Gizmodo has a guide to exporting your pictures. Onward trailblazer! Find a new, independent photo-sharing service.

Oh hey, before you leave, don’t forget your iPhone. I think you left it next to your Starbucks no-whip-double-chai latte. No, no… turn around and look at the table in Chipotle where you were just eating. Now look behind the American Apparel bag…. there it is. Good luck!
