A new Instagram update has arrived, and has brought with a bunch of creative tools to allow even deeper editing support for your photographs than ever before. Available now for the Android and iOS versions of the app, this upgrade has as usual, managed to give Windows Phone a miss.
Color and Fade are the two new tools which have been included in the newest version of Instagram. The Android update will take Instagram to version 6.19.0, whereas the iOS download will push it up to version 6.10.0.
Using the new Color tool you will be able to basically change the hues in particular areas of your photographs. You can use it to add tints to the highlights or shadows in the images, thus giving you more control of how your final upload will look. You will find this tool easily in the same section of Instagram that lets you fine-tune your pictures for contrast, brightness, sharpness and more.
Coming to the new Fade feature, it is yet another addition to the social image and video-sharing app that’s aimed at giving your photographs an aged look. As if the regular filters weren’t enough, Fade softens the colors in the images to bring a vintage vibe to them. This option sits right besides the new Color tool in the app.
Apart from these two editing tools, Instagram has even received a fresh social feature in the form of Post Notifications. You can turn it on to get notified when a particular account posts a photo or a video.
