Amateur photographers, designers and artists have become budding iPhoneographers thanks to the insta-styling and sharing of iPhone app Instagram and its burgeoning user base. Now, top Instagramers can also make money on their filtered iPhone photos.

Startup Keepsy, a photo album and scrapbook maker, is showing off the work of Instagram’s most-celebrated users — many of whom were profiled in our feature on the top 15 photographers on Instagram. Keepsy is featuring curated photo albums and making them available to the public as printed keepsakes.

The Keepsy Instagram gallery spotlights the photo collections of 21 Instagram photographers from across the globe. Fans can browse the photo books or purchase printed copies. Instagram artists — who set the price of their books — will take home 50% of the profit from album sales.

The Instagram photo gallery, says Keepsy co-founder Blake Williams, is meant to highlight “exceptional talents and give them a place to showcase and sell their best work,” as well as “inspire other mobile photographers to discover and push the limits of this amazingly powerful piece of technology that they hold in their hands.”

Nintendo has taken the dramatic step of slashing the price of its 3DS handheld less than six months after its launch. In a statement on its US website, the company says that on August 12, the 3DS will drop from $249 to $169. The company added that it would assuage the 830,000 existing owners of the console in the US with 20 free games after they sign up to its Ambassador program.

To get the free games, existing owners must log into the Nintendo eShop over a broadband connection at least once before August 11:59PM on August 11. These users will automatically be registered as part of the Ambassador program. Starting September 1, Nintendo 3DS Ambassadors will be able to download 10 NES Virtual Console games at no charge and before they are available in the Nintendo eShop to the general public.
The games, which include Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong Jr., Balloon Fight, Ice Climber, and The Legend of Zelda, are slated to become paid downloadable games, but Ambassadors get them early for free. Once the paid versions of the games are posted to the Nintendo eShop later in the year, the updated versions will be available to Ambassadors for download at no cost.
A second batch of ten games will arrive by the end of 2011 and will be exclusive to current owners. Nintendo will provide Ambassadors with 10 Game Boy Advance Virtual Console games. These include games like Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, Metroid Fusion, WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$, and Mario vs. Donkey Kong. Nintendo says that it currently has no plans to make these 10 games available to the general public on the Nintendo 3DS in the future.
