First time after two years, Instagram added five new filters for still images few hours back. The most recent filters before this, which seems odd considering they’ve been there longer than most of Instagrams users have actually been on the app, were Willow and Mayfair.
You can take a look at them for yourself below: They are Slumber, Crema, Ludwig, Aden & Perpetua
Instagram is also introducing a way to “Manage” your filters by allowing you to rearrange the ones you use the most at the front of the line and push back the ones almost no one uses like Toaster and Kelvin.
“They soften and subtly shift colors to achieve the look and feel you want for your each photo,” says the Instagram blog. The app will also use a preview of your actual photo within the filter icons as opposed to the ultra-familiar hot air balloon preview.
Instagram recently announced that it had hit 300 million users, which beats out Twitter’s most recent numbers. You can check out the blog post from Instagram here. Enjoy!
