Becoming increasingly popular made Instagram review its tools. The social media platform, now counting about 300 million users, dropped new filters for an improved photo editing experience this Tuesday. It looks like the app is climbing towards the top of the ladder.
Five new filters took off and upgraded Instagram, providing subscribers with new means to jiggle with the app. Slumber, Crema, Ludwig, Aden and Perpetua as they were named, are the first new filters that Instagram introduced in over two years. Obviously, their names offer no genuine hint regarding how they may enhance the quality of user pictures.
Subscribers experimenting with these new filters will use them when altering and softening colors in a subtle manner. So, no drastic changes are incumbent to the new overlays.
Each of the filters is supposed change still photos in a new way. Slumber applies dimness along with a retro hazy look. Crema adds a cool and warm effect to the picture. Perpetua creates a blue or green natural aspect. Ludvig shed more light in a minimalist manner. Aden is designed for portraits creating mystery aura.
However, there is a visible change in the way filters are showcased. According to an Instagram blog entry, when users apply an overlay to their photograph each icon symbolizing a particular filter- now all of them found on the bottom of the page- will show a smudged sneak peak of the photograph as if the filter was already applied. With such a variety of tools– 24 altogether – Instagram designers have chosen to set up a filter management option. This tool allows subscribers to effortlessly revise the order in which the filters are listed.
This implies users can gather up the tools they use constantly and push out of the way those they have a tendency to disregard.
This most recent upgrade comes after another one was introduced in the summer. Some users might remember that, at the time, a range of editing tools were added, in addition to the enhancements to existing ones.
Instagram becomes more and more popular, just last week realizing new statistics about its new members. More precisely, the app managed to grab 100 million new subscribers in the last nine months. Right now, Instagram has approximately 300 million subscribers. The new version of the app is now accessible for both Android and iOS users. The new tools might be part of its marketing strategy to attract even more users.
