Instagram has today announced the launch of its largest ever upgrade to its iOS camera, since it received a revamp over one year ago, with Instagram 3.2.
The upgrade, that comes just days after Instagram disabled it’s Twitter photo sharing integration in an attempt to encourage users back to Instagram, includes improvements of its camera, tilt-shift feature and the addition of a new filter.
The camera redesign includes an Instagram-themed blue shutter and shutter release button, a preview of the most recent photo on your camera roll, optional grid guide for live photos and a permanent grid guide for the scale and crop screen. In addition an improved camera roll selector, available for iPhone 5 only, makes it easier to select photos from those saved in your roll.
Due to popular demand, Instagram has added a new filter called Willow for both iOS and Android powered devices. According to the blog Willow is a “monochrome filter with subtle purple tones and a translucent glowing white border” that is great for photographs with contrast like still life and architecture snapshots.
The tilt-shift feature, that blurs certain areas of an image, has also been improved making the feature more accurate and realistic.
Other improvements include a new welcome screen design, News Feed redesign and Infinite scroll on user profiles and other grid views. In addition filtered photos are now saved to a separate album called “Instagram” in the iOS camera roll.
