Loving your Instagram? A new update has revealed additional features that arrived at the popular photo-sharing app, including two new power tools to create more stunning photographs.
A new Instagram update added three new additional features. User Post Notifications, for one, notifies you everytime a user posts a new photo, which can be seen as pretty useful for those who are following celebrities and creatives. To activate, simply click on the menu, and toggle click on ‘Turn on Post Notifications’.
In addition to Post Notifications, Instagram also added Color and Fade, new tools to create more stunning photographs. Color lets you tint highlights and shadows in one of eight sampled colors. To use, simply tap Shadows or Highlights below the image you’re editing, then choose a color. You can use one color for Shadows and Highlights each.
Meanwhile, Fade “allows you to bring a quiet tone to your photos by softening colors”, according to Instagram. This gives photos a retro-polaroid style, often achieved with other photo editing tools.
The new features will be present on the new Instagram for Android version 6.19.0, now available on Google Play, and Instagram for iOS version 6.10.0, to be available in a few days in Apple’s App Store.
