Instagram, the largest social photo platform has added some new effects to its app on both iOS and Android. These new features enable the ability to adjust brightness, contrast, saturation, highlights, shadows, vignette and warmth as well as to select filter strength and sharpen for image editing.
Instagram mentioned in a post that “Inspiring creativity is incredibly important to us—and as the Instagram community grows, we’ve been excited to hear requests for more ways to creatively take hold of how your photos look and feel. You take a photo to capture a moment, but often what you see in the photograph doesn’t feel the same as what you remember. From brightening up a photo of your dinner party to better capturing the warmth of a sunset portrait, these new creative tools help you bring out and share the beauty of the moment as you remember it—right inside the same simple Instagram you already know.”
You have to tap on the new wrench icon to display the photo editing tools available for use and select a filter. The amount of filter applied to a photo can also be adjusted by double tapping the filter icon. The new photo editing features can be seen in the link here.
