Instagram today made available new versions of its Android and iOS mobile apps. The improved Instagram gives budding photographers much more control over each image with the addition of new filters and the ability to adjust the strength of each filter. The app further tempts creativity with tools for adjusting brightness, contrast, highlights, saturation, shadows, sharpness, vignettes, and warmth. Instagram also lets users compare the before/after versions of each photo before publishing. The new version of Instagram for Android and iOS is free to download from the Google Play Store and iTunes App Store, respectively. Instagram made no mention of updating its Windows Phone app.

Instagram ruins photos

Rarely will you see a photo that looks better through the Instagram filter than without, and I said "the" because I meant "the" since it seems like all Instagram photos are run through the same awful yellowing filter "Hey look at all my yellow-skinned friends who look like they are dying from liver disease!"

The point of Instagram is to be seen using Instagram by damaging otherwise decent photos into something awful. Why bother adding new tricks when making photography better has never been the point of Instagram?

You know phones have become too powerful when people actually seek out ways to ruin that power. With Instagram you might as well be taking photos from the camera of a flip phone from 2005.
