Introducing Face Filters and More on Instagram

Instagram has introduced a new set of creative tools to make it more fun and easier than ever to share any moment with friends on Instagram, no matter where you are or what you're doing. 

Face filters are a fun new way to turn any selfie into something you can't wait to share. From the subtle twitch of a koala's ear to spotlights that track your position,  our initial set of face filters reflect the craft and creativity that have  been core to Instagram since day one. Here's how they work:

·         Swipe into the camera and you'll see the new icon in the bottom right corner. Tap it to view and try on different face filters and capture a photo, video, boomerang, or our new “rewind” mode that plays in reverse.
·         You can use face filters with other creative tools like stickers, drawing, and text styles.
·         Add a hashtag to your story  with simple text or the new hashtag sticker.
·         Tap  the hashtag to explore related content
·         With the new eraser  brush, you can erase other things you've drawn and play around with  removing color.

Bollywood sensation Alia Bhatt is one of the first users in the country to use the cool new filters on Instagram. In her latest Stories, she shared adorable selfies with her fans and friends, showcasing the various filters with her trademark flair. She can be seen rocking the royal Grecian tiara in one, sporting the geeky, but cool glasses in another and the cute bunny filter with the hashtag sticker in the third.

Also today, Innstagram has rolled out more creative tools in the camera.

You can make videos that play in reverse with “Rewind,” a new camera format next to “Boomerang” and “Hands-Free.” Drop a microphone and watch it fly up into your hand. Capture a fountain in motion and share a rewind of the water floating back up. Experiment with some magic tricks of your own and defy the laws of physics wherever you are.

You can also add more context to your story with a new hashtag sticker. Just tap the sticker icon at the top right of your screen, select and customize the hashtag, then add it to your story. Like with mentions, you can add hashtags using regular text as well. People watching your story will be able to tap the hashtag sticker or text to visit the hashtag page and explore related posts.

Lastly, you'll see a new eraser brush when using drawing tools. You can erase other things you've drawn and play around with removing color. After you've taken a photo or video, select a drawing tool and tap and hold to fill the entire screen with color. Then, using the eraser brush, you can creatively reveal parts of your photo or video underneath.

From the very first photo filter to Boomerang and more, 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.
