Your Instagram game is about to be really on point. Today Instagram announced that they are introducing 5 new filters, "inspired by the photography, art, fashion and design of the global Instagram community," aka "so you can up your selfie and sunset game." The new filters are called Slumber, Crema, Ludwig, Aden, and Perpetua and tbh they all look the fucking same to me. Like, Earth to Instagram, if you're going to give example photos to try to show us what all the filters look like, maybe you shouldn't choose completely different photos for each one. Unless Crema sticks a little vintage VW Beetle into every pic I seriously don't know what tf it does.
But the good news for those of you who aren't photographically oriented like me is, instead of having that pic of a hot air balloon, now all the filter thumbnails will be a preview of your pic. You can also rearrange your filters and hide the ones you don't use, so you don't have to scroll to get to Valencia anymore.
So practice your skinny arm or go on a nature run so you can try out all these new features.
