It can be observed that more and more people are using Instagram, especially teenagers. Instagram standardizes the photos with its own special filters that make them less personal. This study aimed at exploring how Taiwan teenagers react to this trend and what strategies they use to manipulate their photos. Study showed that instead of taking selfies, teenagers prefer to posting photos including friends and them. They would spend amounts of time manipulating photos by external apps to minimize, cut, apply different filters, add text or cute pictures, light, and combine photos into one photo. All of these actions are to transform original and palpable photos into stylish and distinguished works of art, suggesting that aesthetic is the core element that influence design process. Moreover, teenagers would imitate each other or public photo to evolve their photo editing, which indicates that they are shaping a new art world.
