Major news from the Instagram camp today: The social media app is rolling out five new filters today, the first time they've debuted new filters in nearly two full years.
“Photography trends have evolved,” reads a statement from Instagram, which we grabbed via The Verge. “We’ve seen tremendous creativity within the community, not only in the moments they share, but in the time spent carefully composing and editing photos and videos to bring out emotions and make them beautiful.”
We presume that this move is Instagram's answer to apps like VSCO Cam, which offers a seemingly infinite number of options to add filters to your Instagram photos. In addition to adding the five new filters, Instagram has also added the ability to rearrange the order of the filters underneath your editing, so you can put your favourite or most-used filters at the beginning.
