Less than a year after introducing Stories, Instagram has [finally] added face filters to its list of features.
"Today, we're introducing face filters in the camera, an easy way to turn an ordinary selfie into something fun and entertaining," their press release reads. "Whether you're sitting on the couch at home or out and about, face filters help you express yourself and have playful conversations with friends."
[the one below is the best one IMO, and its very similar to Snapchat's own gold leafy thing.]
instagram is a dog face filter away from killing snapchat— Champagne Baba (@jaybeezymane) May 16, 2017
To use Insta's new face filters, make sure you have the latest version of the App.
Then open the camera and select the little face that should have appeared in the bottom right hand corner. The filters work for photos, videos, Boomerangs, and even the new "rewinds."
Today, we’re introducing face filters, an easy way to turn an ordinary selfie into something fun and entertaining. Whether you’re sitting on the couch at home or you’re out and about, you can use face filters to express yourself and have playful conversations with friends. Simply open the camera and tap the new face icon in the bottom right corner. Tap a filter to try it on and send it to your friends or add it to your story. They even work with Boomerang! Also today, we’re rolling out three new creative tools. Make videos that play in reverse with “Rewind,” add context to your story with a hashtag sticker and get creative with the eraser brush. Instagram has always been the place you can go to turn regular moments into something you can’t wait to share. Now, you have more fun and easy ways to express yourself and connect with the people you care about most. To learn more about today’s updates, check out help.instagram.com. These updates are available as part of Instagram version 10.21 for iOS in the Apple App Store and for Android in Google Play.
