Famous photo-editing app Instagram has rolled out a new update, bringing as many as five new photo filters to the exciting application.
In its official blogpost, the company said, “Inspired by the photography, art, fashion and design of the global Instagram community, we’re releasing five new filters that we believe are our best yet. You’ll see the filters at the front of your filter tray: Slumber, Crema, Ludwig, Aden and Perpetua. They soften and subtly shift colors to achieve the look and feel you want for your each photo.”
Instagram has not only unveiled five new filters but has also worked on updating the display of each filter in the app.
If the user apply a filter on any of his/her photo, “each filter icon on the bottom will display a blurred preview of the image with the applied effects.”
Apart from the filters, Instagram has also launched a new Manage button that will allow the user to just tap in order to arrange filters according to their wish.
While Instagram’s iOS version 6.4.0 will be available from today in Apple’s App Store, the Instagram for Android version 6.12.0 will be available on Google Play from today.
