(CBS) - If you're not already using Instagram, the iPhone app that manipulates mobile photos in a matter of seconds, you're going to want to.
In case you didn't know, Instagram makes ordinary folks into photographers and photographers into superheroes. Really.
All a user has to do is snap a photo, select a "look and feel" and voila! Instagram automatically edits the picture better than a novice photoshopper.
The photo-sharing app recently hit 5 million users over the weekend and nearly 100 million uploaded photos. It took image- and video-hosting site Flickr two years to reach that benchmark, which Instagram has succeeded at in roughly eight months.
For a company that has only four employees, that's pretty amazing.
Threatening Instagram's success: Facebook's soon-to-come photo-sharing app. TechCrunch reports they've gotten a hold of screenshots and documentation about the upcoming program and it looks "awesome."
Regardless of what you use to take pictures, one thing's for sure, we can all be "photogs."
