How to Design Bags of Love Products with Instagram Images

It seems that Instagram photographs are popping up everywhere.  For those who are unfamiliar with the smartphone application, it allows you to add visual filters to your phone’s photographs.  All you have to do is snap a photo with your smartphone, and Instagram allows you to choose a specific visual filter for the image.  In seconds you are able to transform your image’s look and feel with vintage effects, special lighting, and intensified colours.
