Darling of the square, shareable image Instagram has added five new image filters to its repertoire for the first time in two years (in December 2012 the company added the Willow and Mayfair filters). It’s also included the ability to rearrange the filters and hide those you never use.
The five new filters are Slumber, Crema, Ludwig, Aden and Perpetual. Here’s what they look like (courtesy of the Instagram blog):
“Inspired by the photography, art, fashion and design of the global Instagram community, we’re releasing five new filters that we believe are our best yet. You’ll see the filters at the front of your filter tray: Slumber, Crema, Ludwig, Aden and Perpetua. They soften and subtly shift colors to achieve the look and feel you want for your each photo,” a post introducing the new filters on the Instagram blog reads.
The Facebook-owned company has also updated how users preview filters before applying them. Previously the filter tray contained a thumbnail image of a hot-air balloon with the filter applied by way of example. Now the thumbnails for each filter use a blurred version of the actual image being edited.
