10 Tips for Better Instagram Photos

Oh, Instagram. Where else would we so easily broadcast photos of animals looking particularly pensive?

We are officially a few weeks into January, and if your New Year's resolutions are going anything like ours, it's time to get some help. Unfortunately, we can't offer much in the way of helping you lose a few extra pounds (though some of these free fitness events may) or make deposits into your good-karma account, but we've got something better. We're going to help you up your Instagram game.

So, grab your shiny new smartphones and Walden filters, log in, and get ready to impress your followers with your brand-new Insta-skills.
