Twitter adds photo filters: Visual tour of what's new
- 11 December, 2012 20:56
Twitter has added photo filters to its official Android and iOS apps. There are eight Instagram-like filters you can use, which you get to pick after you select a photo to upload on Twitter.
Twitter did not develop the new filters in-house, so they will look familiar to some users. They are powered by Aviary, a third-party solution also used by Flickr for its online photo editor.
Social-network owned photo filters apps seem to be the latest trend, and the move is natural to Twitter. Facebook has Instagram and Facebook Camera, an app that adds filters to your photos before you upload them to Facebook, and Google also turned the Snapseed app into a way to add filters to photos before uploading to Google+.
