How to Create an Instagram Filter in Photoshop
Open your photo into Photoshop. I'll be using this Woman Stock.

Start with the action. Go to Window > Action to bring up the Actions palette. Click on the folder icon to create a New Set. Name the set "Instagram," and then select New Action and name it "Hudson." Once you hit Record, the action will automatically record your steps.

Then go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Color Lookup. Set the settings for the 3D LUT File to Fuji F125 Kodak 2395, and then set the Layer Blend Mode to Luminosity.

Now create a New Layer and Fill it with a pale yellow color 
#fef3d5
 using the Paint Bucket Tool (G). Set this layer to Divide.

Finish with a vignette. Fill a New Layer with black. Use the Elliptical Marquee Tool (M) to create a large circle, and then hit Delete to remove the center. Now go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and blur the edges with a Radius of 65 px. Lower the final Opacity to 40%.
When you're done, hit the Stop button on the Actions palette to use this new action for other photos.

Here is the final effect.
