It appears that filters come in groups of three. Days after Instagram added a new camera and Twitter introduced photo filters into its mobile applications, Flickr has released a new version of its Apple iPhone app that lets users apply filters to the images they post to the photo-sharing site. Version 2.0 of the app features a new navigation bar that makes it easier to browse highlighted photos or images that were captured nearby. It also introduces the Groups feature that increases discovery of images.
Flickr upgraded its photo capturing options as well. Members can now choose from 16 camera filters to apply to their photos and then share online. Like Twitter before it, the filters are powered by Aviary and range from reproducing retro style photography to providing modern enhancements to improve images. The app has been optimized for the iPhone 5 and requires iOS 4.3 or later.
