Instagram has reportedly added new filters to give users variegated effect options to color the still images.

According to the Instagram blog, the filters soften and subtly shift colors to achieve the look and feel the user wants for each photo.

The added filters to the collection are Slumber, Crema, Ludwig, Perpetua and Aden.

The app will also use a preview of the user's actual photo within the filter icons as opposed to the ultra-familiar hot air balloon preview, the report added.

The latest version of Instagram also allows user to upload slow motion video.

With 300 million active users, photo sharing site Instagram has recently moved ahead of Twitter in terms of users.
