Instagram videos, which have been limited to 15 seconds since they were introduced in June 2013, can now extend to a full minute. Recording a video with Instagram is simple and easy. 

Follow these steps to take a video with Instagram:
  1. Open Instagram app.
  2. Tap the plus sign located at the bottom of your app screen. Then switch to 'Video' tab, press & hold the 'capture' button to start recording. The video recording limit is 1 min only. Which means you can not record a video longer than 60 seconds. 
  3. Lift your finger off the button to stop recording. 
  4. Tap 'Next' to add a filter and then share your video, exactly as you would with a photo that you've taken with Instagram or selected from your phone's photo library. 
  5. But it's worth noting that video recording is currently only available on the iOS and Android versions of Instagram, and isn't yet an option for Windows Phone users.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
