We’ve had an amazing time watching Instagram grow into a vibrant community of people from all around the globe. Today, we couldn’t be happier to announce that Instagram has agreed to be acquired by Facebook.

Now that Facebook has acquired Instagram, I’m sure some people are trying to figure out how to get their photos out of it. is one service that offers you a way to export your pictures from Instagram.

After authenticating with your Instagram credentials, Instaport will gather your photos and offer you a ZIP file after it’s done. I had 232 photos which were 21.3 MB. Here’s the link to delete your Instagram account in case you were looking.

Congrats on that $1 billion though!
