The number of shutterbugs using Instagram has ballooned to over 80 million since the service launched in October 2010, according to the company's blog.

The free photo editing service, which boasts easy-to-use filters with a retro feel, has won the affection of photographers the world over - especially those who use their mobile phones as their window on the world.

Instagram notes that its users have collectively shared nearly 4 billion photographs.

"We're humbled by the amazing photos from people's lives we see every day on Instagram, and thank you for being part of this growing community," the Instagram Team wrote Thursday.

This benchmark has us wondering how many of our CBC readers use the popular service. If so, odds are you have a growing album and one all-time favourite image.

We'd love to see your best shot and read about why it's your tops your list. The photos you send us will be compiled into a photo album of your best work.
