I like using Instragram to enrich and edit photos but I do not want to share them. Is there anyway to do that? I have googled and people have suggested turning off Wi-Fi or go to airplane mode but that seems really annoying to have to do each time.

Is there any way in Instagram to just use locally?

Which OS/app are you using? – Sathya Jul 15 '13 at 3:49
You would probably be better off using a camera application that has "Instagram-like" filters. – Al E. Jul 15 '13 at 11:52

Well one of the way is to just capture the photo and apply the filter but never post it.

That’s exactly what the OP is asking for; can you elaborate on how to do it? – Alex Jul 15 '13 at 11:36
