by Robert Anthony

Are you ready to give your Instagram feed a facelift?

On Tuesday, August 26, Instagram announced Hyperlapse, the new app enabling users to effortlessly create time-lapse videos.

In the world of photography, composing a time-lapse video or image is easier said than done. Weeks, months and even years go by before a photographer finally puts the finishing touches on a flawless time-lapse video.

A while back, we introduced you to "Above LA," a magical time-lapse video put together by videographer Chris Pritchard. That piece alone took approximately two years to complete, as Pritchard captured over 300 clips all around the city of Los Angeles.

With the Hyperlapse app, Instagram makes it pretty easy for users to tap into the time-lapse technique from their smartphones.

So far, Hyperlapse has been getting great feedback from users and there are already tons of these mesmerizing videos uploaded. Check out 20 of the coolest ones below!
