Screen Shot 2012-12-11 at 12.06.33 AMEarlier, we wrote about how Twitter are working on their own photo-filters, and we said that the update is coming before Christmas. Just now, Twitter have pushed an update that now includes photo-filters – they also made a nice video.


The app now offers eight photo-filters, including “vignette, black & white, warm, cool, vintage, cinematic, happy, and gritty” tones. It also allows users to preview the filters in a grid interface, as well as the ability to crop, auto-enhance and resize photos.

unnamedThe update is thought to be a response to Facebook’s purchase of Instagram earlier this year.

Check the App Store and Google Play for when the update lands.
