In his view, printing alone—of items such as canvases, postcards, or photo books—would be a massive business, even if it were outsourced to companies like CanvasPop or Shutterfly.

A much better user experience than photo filtered ads.  Alternatively, Instagram could allow brands to create filters like VSCO does
