Instagram has unveiled its latest version 6.0, that includes some new editing tools. In a post on its official blog, Instagram states, “We’re delighted to bring you a set of new creative tools on Instagram with the ability to adjust brightness, contrast, saturation, warmth and more.”
These tools can easily be accessed by tapping a new wrench icon appearing on the editing screen of Instagram, which is visible in a horizontal list.
According to The Verge, “Tapping one of the tools lets you adjust its strength on a 100-point scale, so even if you have no idea what vignetting means, you can develop your own understanding by playing with the tool for a couple minutes and noticing how the edges of your photo get darker as you increase the strength of the tool.”
Speaking to the news site, Peter Deng, the director of the product, said that in order to execute vignetting, the team at Instagram has researched “what film cameras and vignetting actually looks like, and how [vignetting is] an artifact of how lenses take the light in.”
