Instagram adds its first new filters in two years

SHAFAQNA –   Good news for fans of image editing and sharing app Instagram – the service has added five new filters for users to use to their advantage. The new filters, which should be available in your version of the app right now, are said to be aimed at making the most of the improved quality of smartphone cameras, and as a result are more subtle than some of the others already in the app.

These are the first new additions in lens filters since December 2012, when Mayfair and Willow were added. Here’s a run-down of the new filters in question.











New features

As well as these cool new effects, minimal though they are, users will also notice other new features in the app. These include a new Manage tool that gives you the power to hide the filters you don’t use – tidying the filter selection screen.

An Adjust tool has also been added to the edit screen, meaning it is now possible to alter the perspective of images.


The new tool enables uses to straighten or un-straighten images for artistic effect.

The app currently has 300 million active users, making it one of four Facebook-owned services to be larger than Twitter.
