Instagram adds new photography tools

Instagram, a photo filter app, owned by Facebook; and now used by over two hundred million users. However, Instagram is not just staying as another photo filter application. On Tuesday, this popular photo sharing app rolled out a series of new updates that bring it in line with the characteristics of a traditional digital camera. App users who update to Instagram 6.0 would find ten brand new tools that would allow them to edit snaps for things such as warmth, saturation, brightness and contrast.
In keeping with the traditional interface of the app, the new tools are very simple: black buttons with white icons. Still, the results are quite powerful, offering the users the type of imaging potentiality that was once reserved for the likes of Adobe’s industry leading Photoshop software.
Till now, a lot of Instagram users have clicked snaps with their smartphones and embellished these pictures with a series of filters. Unlike the old – shoot, apply, share theme, now the experience would be a bit closer to real photography. Now, it has something that needs a bit more time and attention; something that Instagram users are not really accustomed to.
It appears that (with other popular applications like Camera+ and Litely) Instagram’s new updates is way to keep its users in one place. Now, people would not have to go to other apps to get the desired result. The quick edit options would also keep it user friendly.
