For users who don't want their pictures sold, there are quite a few options. One is to hold out and hope Instagram revises the Terms of Service before January 16. The company has indicated that they may make revisions -- in a blog post released earlier today, co-founder Kevin Systrom backpedaled on the new policy, stating, "It was interpreted by many that we were going to sell your photos to others without any compensation. This is not true and it is our mistake that this language is confusing. To be clear: It is not our intention to sell your photos. We are working on updated language in the terms to make sure this is clear."
If Instagram doesn't alter the policy, users can remove their photos and profiles (Wired has a tutorial on how to do so). Users who choose to abandon the service will be greeted by a host of other photo editing and sharing apps. Here are five we recommend.
