Instagram 6.0 is now released for iOS and Android and it brings a new set of photo editing features. With the new Instagram, you can control the strength of the effect by double tapping on the effect while editing the photo.


Until now, Instagram only allowed to apply the filters on photos and there were only three adjustment options. But now, with the new update, users can not only apply cool filters on their photos but they can also adjust the photo by controlling things like Brightness, Contrast, Sharpness and more. You can also control the Lux strength through the Lux slider.

To control the effect strength, you just need to select a desired filter from the horizontal list of filters and then tap on the same filter again. It will bring a slider which you can use to reduce or increase the strength of the filter. You also get a border option with the strength slider, you can tap on the border button to add border to your photo. Once done, you can hit the check button. To enhance the photo, Instagram now offers 9 adjustment options which are Brightness, Contrast, Warmth, Saturation, Highlights, Shadows, Vignette, Tilt Shift and Sharpness. You can just tap on any of these and adjust the strength through the slider.

This is a big update and I am sure most Instagram users will be happy now as they can now adjust the photos right in the Instagram app. You can grab the update for Android from Google Play Store and for iPhone from App Store.
