Even though Instagram is one of the most popular photo sharing social networks available, the tools it gives to users to edit pictures is pretty limited compared to others out there. Even the filters in number are pretty small compared to the likes of VSCO Cam.
Instagram 6.0 has been released today and brings some much needed photo editing tools that Instagram is calling "Creative Tools".
Now when you go to upload a new photo you'll not only be given the option of filters, but also see a new spanner icon. Tapping on this will give users the ability to adjust brightness, contrast, warmth, saturation, highlights, shadows, vignette, tilt-shift and sharpness.
Another new feature is the ability to change the strength of a filter. When choosing a filter, double tapping on it will bring up a bar giving the ability to change the strength of it.
The update is available now for both Android and iOS.
