Tiltshift Effects

Finally managed to sit down and actually test the tilt shift effect on IG. I like how the implimented it as a button and therefore you get to use it with other effects. But after testing it on so many highground photos, I find that the X-Pro II fx works best because of its high saturation – since that’s how tilt shifts work best. There are other ways but again those involve the use of external apps.

Instagram for iOS has been updated to version 1.5 and it brings with it a much awaited filter, tilt-shift. No more using another app for tilt shift effects before uploading to instagram, users can now use instagram directly for this effect. Version 1.5 also features the much anticipated @mention in comments. This can be done by tapping and holding a user’s name.

Other updates include a revamp to the newsfeed, geo location photos without naming the location, email photos under sharing and performance improvements.
