Addition of Many New Editing Tools
Recently, the company announced that Instagram PC users will soon be able to utilize innovative and creative tools that are developed for this app. There are approximately 10 new tools. These tools will offer assistance to fiddle with editing abilities like brightness, saturation, contrast and warmth. This new feature could be used on both iOS and Android. They are called Instgram’s “creative tools”! You will have to first select the filter, after which a new wrench icon will appear through which you can add different effects to your photographs. The new image processing tool could be accessed on version 6.0 of this app. Although these tools are new for this particular app, you may have used these tools before in several other apps. In a BlogSpot post, Instagram wrote regarding these new editing tools, “From brightening up a photo of your dinner party to better capture the warmth of a sunset portrait, these new creative tools help you bring out and share the beauty of the moment as you remember it—right inside the same simple Instagram you already know.”
Initially, Instagram provided only a limited number of post-processing special effects to its users similar to straightening, borders, etc. This move was made after Facebook bought Instagram in 2012. Since then, Instagram has observed an enormous rise in photo sharing by its users, thereby increasing its popularity.

Some Bad News
Due to its increased recognition, it also has an increased risk of malware and viruses. For instance, Instagram’s fake “Image Viewer” is a malware. Jovi Umawing, an intelligence analyst at Malwarebytes, recently wrote that “In the case of Instagram, what we’ve seen out there could pose greater risk than, say, your average phishing site.” Therefore, you are advised to use a good protection against viruses and malwares on your phones, laptops or PCs.
