Instagraph - Instagram with ImageMagick & PHP

In this repository, I’ll demonstrate you how to create vintage (just like Instagram does) photos effects with PHP and ImageMagick. Wait? What? Yes, you can do this very thing with PHP and ImageMagick, and that’s just scratching the surface of allmighty Imagemagick!

In Few Short Lines

  • Requires PHP 5.3 + Imagemagick (not Imagick extension)
  • Features Lomo, Nasvhille, Kelvin, Toaster, Gotham, Tilt-Shift
  • ???
  • I don't own a "smartphone" so I can't use real Instagram app to compare

Example Usage


$instagraph = new Instagraph;
# You can see changes in output file now


Demo application is included, it looks like:


Live demo will be up soon on:
