Instagram courts hardcore photography fans with new filter and improved editing features

Instagram updated its Android and iOS apps on Monday to version 3.2 with a set of tweaks that add more editing features and a new filter called “Willow.” The new Instagram has a new in-app camera with a viewfinder that resembles a Kodak Brownie Starflash, grid-rulers for finding the perfect composition, improved tilt-shift blurring and enhanced Foursquare integration that redirects to the app to provide more location data. Photos that are saved are now stored in their own folder instead of to the camera roll’s and profile pages now have infinite scrolling. The most important portion of the update is the new Willow filter that gives photos “a monochrome filter with subtle purple tones and a translucent glowing white border.”
