One of the most annoying things about Instagram – and the biggest reason why I don't personally use the service – is the app's inability to allow users to upload images from devices other than a smartphone or tablet.
Well that just changed.
A new plugin called LR/Instagram allows you to upload images to your Instagram account directly through Lightroom CC or LR 3.0 (or later).
From the author's website:
About the Lightroom Plugin
LR/Instagram is an unofficial publish plugin for Lightroom, allowing you to post photos directly to your Instagram account.
Simply install the plugin, add new service in Lightroom Publishing Manager and authenticate with your Instagram account.
Drag photos to the publish collection, then click Publish to immediately upload your photos to Instagram.
There simply is no faster way to publish from Lightroom to Instagram!
The plugin supports hashtags, padding, cropping, and multiple accounts and is free to try and only $10.00 to register. [Sean]
Visit the LR/Instagram for more information and to download the software.

From Bowens (UK):
Limelite by Bowens has announced the launch of groundbreaking Mosaic2 LED panels - with ultra-high CRI 94/TLCI 94 light output.
Available in Daylight (5600K) and BiColour (3000K-5000K) options, Mosaic2 uses 576 cutting edge high fidelity LEDs, dimmable from 100-0%, to create 1x1 panels that are extremely powerful and significantly more colour accurate than previous models.
Alan Walmsley, Bowens sales and marketing director said: “Mosaic2 is a powerful addition to our comprehensive portfolio of light tools. These new units, which target the full gamut of photo and video enthusiasts as well as working professionals, embrace the rugged build-quality synonymous with all Limelite products. They are quick to set up and easy to use. This is a truly multi-purpose lighting solution providing feature rich LED panels suitable for small or large studios.”
He added: “These metal-bodied panels, which weigh in at just 1.4kg, create high levels of soft, flattering light that can be further shaped and controlled with our comprehensive range of accessories.
They are also an ideal choice for photographers working with babies, small children and animals who might be startled by flash lighting. And users shooting heat sensitive subjects such as food will benefit from Mosaic2’s cool-running operation.”
The new panels, which will have an RRP of £654 (Daylight model) and £835 (Bi-Colour model), are also designed for video and broadcast work both in studio and on location (with optional battery mounting accessories)
Tim Haskell, Limelite business development manager said: “Mosaic2 1x1 LED panels are used by leading broadcasters and global news gathering operations. Mosasic2 can be controlled remotely via an external DMX mixer and multiple panels can easily be linked and used as a single panel.”
Mosaic2 key features:
  • Outstanding colour fidelity
  • Ultra-bright LEDs (up to 4000Lux@1m)
  • Exceptional build quality
  • Fully dimmable and user programmable
  • Pre-mounted AC adaptor and international cable kit (use anywhere in the world)
  • Wide range of light control, mounting and battery power accessories
Pembrokeshire-based photographer and Panasonic GH camera ambassador Ross Grieve added: “I trialled the new Mosaic2 lights and they are superb. They are now my go-to panels for events and training programmed. I also use them as reflectors when I need more bounce. These panels are child’s play to use and with full control over colour temperature and brightness I have all the power and control I need.”

According to a study published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, approximately 80% of those in North America live in ares where the Milky Way is no longer visible.
We found that about 83% of the world’s population and more than 99% of the U.S. and European populations live under light-polluted skies (that is, where artificial sky brightness at the zenith is >14 µcd/m2). Due to light pollution, the Milky Way is not visible to more than one-third of humanity, including 60% of Europeans and nearly 80% of North Americans. Moreover, 23% of the world’s land surfaces between 75°N and 60°S, 88% of Europe, and almost half of the United States experience light-polluted nights.
The countries with the populations least affected by light pollution are Chad, Central African Republic, and Madagascar, with more than three-quarters of their inhabitants living under pristine sky conditions. The countries and territories with the largest nonpolluted areas are Greenland (only 0.12% of its area does not have pristine skies), Central African Republic (0.29%), Niue (0.45%), Somalia (1.2%), and Mauritania (1.4%).
On the other side, the most light-polluted country is Singapore, where the entire population lives under skies so bright that the eye cannot fully dark-adapt to night vision. Other populations experiencing this level of light pollution are Kuwait (98%), Qatar (97%), United Arab Emirates (93%), Saudi Arabia (83%), South Korea (66%), Israel (61%), Argentina (58%), Libya (53%), and Trinidad and Tobago (50%); all of these countries have more than half of their inhabitants living under extremely bright skies.
