Twitter adds photo filters: Visual tour of what's new

Twitter has added photo filters to its official Android and iOS apps

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.

The move comes after Facebook-owned Instagram, the most popular photo filters app, disabled the option for Twitter users to see preview photos for Twitter Cards published from Instagram.

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+.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
