It’s getting even easier to add that special touch to your Instagram photo. The official app of the popular social network has just been updated to version 6.0. And the major addition is 10 new photo-editing tools to select from. The tools can be used to adjust different aspects of images, including brightness, contrast, saturation, and warmth. I’m most excited about the Sharpen tool that will help make photos crisp and clear. When selecting a filter, photographers can now tap the wrench to access the editing tools. Double-tapping the filter icon also allows a user to adjust exactly how much of a filter is applied to a photo. More information about the tools can be found on Instagram's site. The update also makes it easier to upload and share videos. Designed for the iPhone/iPod touch, Instagram can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. Before the new update, the last major version arrived back in December. Version 5.0 ushered in Instagram Direct, a new way to share photos, videos, and messages with select groups.
