Instagram rolls out new 'fade, color' tools, 'post notifications' feature

apps Updated: Apr 08, 2015 16:20 IST


Instagram has introduced two new photo-editing tools, called "Fade" and "Color" and also added a "Post Notifications" feature, which will notify users when their favorite accounts post new updates.

While the "Fade" tool allows users to wash out colour from pictures and get a more muted effect reminiscent of low-fi prints with variable intensity, the "Color" tool adjusts the tones of both highlights and shadows of your pictures, Tech Crunch reported.

Both the new creative tools are already available for Android (version 6.19.0) users. The iOS app however, is expected to roll out the new features in a few days.

The other "Post Notifications" feature introduced by Instagram to its app is being dubbed as a great feature for the upcoming Apple Watch app, which will allow users to check new posts instantly without even checking one's phone.

The new "Post Notifications" feature is available on both iOS and Android.
