Create Instagram effects with Photoshop actions

If you own an iPhone, there's a great chance you're using the Instagram app that turns your photos into hip shots.

1.
 

First we need to download and install the Photoshop Instagram action.

Click here for the direct download or click here to visit the web site of the Instagram Action creator and download it from there.

Extract the zip file and open the instagram-actions-by-dbox.atn file with Photoshop to install the Instagram action.


 
 
2.
 

Open a picture in Photoshop.

 
 
3.
 

Go to actions and search for the instagram actions by @dbox action and click to open it.

Press Alt + F9 to bring up the Actions.

 
 
4.
 

Now select the action and click the Play button to apply it on your picture (see picture).

I chose the Toaster action.

 
 
5.
 

That's all! Your picture now looks pretty much the same as it would look like after applying the Toaster effect using the Instagram app on an iPhone.

 
 
6.
 

You can also add border by choosing Border and clicking Play button (see picture).

I chose Border - White, Thick.

Pretty retro right? ;)
