Just so I can make sure that I'm stating this behind facts and not conspiracy or made up junk, I came across this article along with many others linked in this post. This post is merely to help you get your photos off Instagram and close your account so they don't make money off of YOUR work.
So here's the news article I found originally that made me want to write this tutorial quoted:

New York-based photographer Clayton Cubbit wrote on his account that the new policy is “Instagram's suicide note,” referring to an allegedly widespread desire among users to quit the popular app because of the proposed changes.

Other changes include standard points like “no porn” and “you must be 13 to use Instagram.”
There is no way to opt-out of the new Terms of Service – the only option for dissenting users is to delete all of their Instagram photos and deactivate their accounts.
