INSTAGRAM UPDATE OF JUNE 2014 ADDS MORE GOODIES!
Thus Instagram has come up with an exciting new update of 9 NEW effects and sliders to control existing ones! What was seen until now was the fact that Instagram had a userbase of mostly those who didn’t use many effects and those who outsourced this editing job to desktops to expand the editing capabilities. Now, many of these users do not have to go to their PC based editors or other pricey apps to super edit their pictures with the new updates!

The sliders, Instagram says, were introduced to enable more subtle filtering as consumers demanded the middle ground between no effects and heavy complete ones. These new filters are also built “inside” the main UI so that the heavy users may explore and take it out and the casual users flow is not very affected by them! It’s a smart move and will surely affect the consumer base of the likes of Camera+ and Photoshop Express who offer similar services, but at a price!
