Once open, select the "Window" menu at the top, and select "Actions" to open the Actions window. ("Window" is in between "View" and "Help") Step 4: Select the appropriate action and it should be applied to your photograph!
@cityofkyle I think the fact that instagram is an app on on your phone is what makes it unique and fun! Sometimes apps like that don't translate well to desktop, or are just more popular on mobile, like Twitter
Oh this is actually really useful and cool! I wonder if Instagram will ever launch a desktop version of the app...
@peteryang292 That makes sense, I agree
@cityofkyle Personally, I don't see why not. However in their eyes they probably don't want people just posting from the computer. I think people would start to spam Instagram a lot more if they could post from their desktop
