Adding to the list of new changes in mobile photography, Instagram this week released a new feature - newsfeeds brought to your desktop.

Now, users who log on to can see their friends' photos on their computers in the replication of the mobile app's main feed. You can now browse, like and comment on images, just as you would on your mobile device. Follow or unfollow friends and interact with the programme just as you would on the go. The only thing missing? Photo uploads. 

As Instagram's entire platform has been designed in the mobile sphere, it holds firm to its core mission. In a blog post, co-founder Kevin Systrom said, "We do not offer the ability to upload from the web as Instagram is about producing photos on the go, in the real world, in realtime." However, he expressed his pleasure in extending access to the programme through a variety of platforms to access images posted at any time. 

Following Facebook's purchase of Instagram several months ago, the platform has undergone major changes, including the expansion into desktop accessibility and the controversial changes to its terms of service. What do you think will be the next step in mobile photography?
