Instagram has turned pretty much every iOS user into a budding photographer. Now with the new 4.1 update, it’s about to do the same for video.

Okay so maybe video functionality was actually added already in a previous update, but it’s been tweaked significantly. Users can now import video from their device’s library, cut it up so that only the coolest (or goofiest) bits are on display, and set the square-crop to keep the desired subjects framed. The photo side has gotten a little love, too. Now iOS users can automatically straighten horizon lines in their pictures when they use the in-app camera. Or they can mess around with the rotation tool to dial it in personally.

Now get out there are start taking pictures/video taping stuff!
