Instagram Update: New editing tools added and push notifications!

Instagram are in the process of rolling out an update to its Android and iOS apps.

In December Instagram updated the filters to introduce five new options, today they are introducing two new creative tools, Color and Fade.

The Color tool will enable you to tint the highlights or shadows in your photo. You will also be able to  choose from 8 different tones to bring a different perspective on the photos that you are sharing.

The Fade tool, which I am really looking forward to, will allow you to bring a quiet tone to your photos by softening colors, this will will give a similar effect to the very popular Aden filter added in December, and one I use a lot!

One other option that has been added recently is the ability to turn on notifications, so if like me you follow a lot of people you can now keep up to date with your favourites by going to their profile and turning on the notifications!
