Instagram Update: New Editing Tools and Notifications

Posted on by

Instagram released another update this past week that has 3 new features- 2 new editing tools and 1 new notifications feature. It is now easier to keep up with people on Instagram. You can subscribe to posts from specific users. When you are at a user’s profile, click on the  “…” menu in the top right corner. The option to “Turn on Post Notifications” will be there and when you turn it on, Instagram will send push notifications each time the user you follow shares a new post.

The 2 new editing options in the app are color and fade. They are both inside the tools menu all the way on the right. Color allows you to change the color tone of the photo by adding hints of whichever color you select. Just select the color you would like to use. Currently, it offers yellow, orange, red, pink, purple, blue, cyan and green.

Fade softens the colors in your image and brings a nice feel to it. To adjust how much fade to use, just use the slider on the bottom.
