Since its inception, back in 2010, one of the main features of Instagram, which made it stand out from the rest of applications, was the possibility of applying different effects to the photographs that were uploaded.
“Instagram allows you to use 13 different effects in your photos.”
Maybe you do not know, but you can apply 13 different effects to the photographs you have taken with the Instagram camera, but also those that are in the library of your mobile phone, even if you did not do them yourself.
You just have to select it by pressing the (+) symbol to add a photo in the navigation menu of your Instagram app. Once you have selected the one you wanted (or have taken the photo), you just have to click on “Edit”, at the bottom of the screen. From there, you will have 13 different effects to create your perfect image, are the following:
