Instagram is getting five new photo filters!

Instagram will put in five more photo filters to its iOS app. The filters are just part of the app's latest update that is scheduled to be released for the iPhone and iPad today. It's the first time in two years that new filters have been added to the app,

In a blog post, Instagram stated:

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.

In addition, Instagram said:

When you go to apply a filter to your photo, each filter icon on the bottom now displays a blurred preview of your photo with its effect applied. This lets you see at a glance how your photo will appear with each filter applied.

Some more additions include "the ability to upload slow-mo video, real-time commenting (no need to refresh your feed), and the option to adjust your photo's perspective using the adjust tool." Finally, there's a new "Manage" button in the app that lets users arrange the filters they most want to use on top and hide the rest that they don't use as often.
