Photography Bits and Pieces
Instagram has recently released its largest update since last year. The new update includes:
- A preview of the most recent photo on your camera roll.
- Improved Camera Roll image selector (iPhone 5 only) for quick access to your last photograph.
- Optional grid guide for live photos and a permanent grid guide for the scale & crop screen.
- Speed and reliability improvements.
- New Filter: Willow.
