Instagram has set itself up as the largest, and by far, the best social media platform in the market. People today, prefer the image-sharing platform over the more conventional text-based platforms like Facebook. Instagram sees millions of images being shared on the platform on a daily basis, and many of them are of really high quality.
One more application of Instagram is that it serves as an excellent source of references for artists and designers of all genres. Now, Instagram by default does not allow you to download photos from its platform as it can sometimes lead to copyright issues.
