    Hey everyone,

    I came across this photo in the "Popular" section of the Instagram app. It was originally by "JustinBieber". I was just wondering how he managed to get the photo Black and white aside from the phone and orange juice?

    Is there a special technique to do this?

    This can be accmplished in several ways, but not possible simply with the Instagram app. Many users edit photos outside of Instagram, then use it to a vintage effect before uploading.

    This could have been accomplished on a computer using Photoshop or by simply using another image editing app such as Color Splash, which was designed for this specific purpose.

    I see. Thanks. I thought uploading photos from your library defeated the purpose of instagram :)

    Thanks :)

    It does. Many of the real popular shots weren't even shot with Instagram.
    You can use Color Splash for iOS.
