Not only that,they make it easier to choose between filters They have updated how they’re displayed. It is like,when you’re going to apply a filter to your picture, each filter icon on the bottom will display a blurred preview of your picture with the applied effect. This gives you a short glance on how your photo will appear with each applied filter .

Instagram stated that,

Photography trends have evolved. We’ve seen tremendous creativity within the community, not only in the moments they share, but in the time spent carefully composing and editing photos and videos to bring out emotions and make them beautiful.”

To get a sense on how the new filters will change your photos, Instagram now has a selection of images taken and edited by members of the Instagram team that worked on this update. Scroll down to see the pictures before and after each filter was applied.

Perpetua is characterized by “a bluish, green, earthy look like of nature. We named it Perpetua because it’s inspired by the Cape Perpetua national forest in Oregon.” (Tim Lenardo / Instagram)

Aden “achieves a unique pastel-y look. It works great with portraits, even when there is harsh light.” (Mona Huang / Instagram)

Crema can be used to attain “a creamy, smooth look,” says Instagram. “We named it Crema because it achieves exactly that — both a warming and cooling effect.” (Jon Pottebaum / Instagram)

Slumber gives “a retro look of subtle desaturation and hazing. We named it Slumber because the effect is dreamy. It does something especially retro to blacks and blues.” (John Barnett / Instagram)

Ludwig offers “a minimalist look of taking away most of the colors and then enhancing light. We named it Ludwig because of the famous minimalist mantra “less is more,” coined by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. It works especially great with portraits, architecture, and geometric shapes.” (Chris Connolly / Instagram)

The update is slowly rolling out to users today but at first glance it looks like Instagram is headed in a more subtle direction. Overall, the new filters have even tones and muted colors in provided sample images look more appealing than many of the current filters, which have suffered from overuse. Meaning less ’70s toaster-esque masks and more fine-tuned details that speak to an emotion rather than an era.

 So get ’grammin! I want to see what you can do with Slumber,
