Apply filters and update your photos on Instagram.

Instagram, in terms of sharing options, has come a long way from its early days. Users could only upload images via the app when it debuted in 2010 and apply filters without any new editing functionality.

You will pick the photo or video tab when you press the middle Instagram sharing tab to let the app know if you want to upload a shot or take a video. Using the Library to pick something you've saved if you don't want to capture it in the app.

Instagram has 40 filters that can be added to videos and images. Some extra options for photo editing allow you to straighten the image, change stuff like brightness and warmth, and color overlay. For videos, you can disable audio, pick a cover photo, and trim videos if you are using the iOS app. Or, to make 15-second video clips, try Instagram Reels.

You're taken to a tab where you can fill out a caption, tag other users to it, tag it to a geographical venue, and concurrently upload it to the other social networks after you apply an extra filter and make some edits.

Your followers will access it and engage with it in their feeds until it is released. By clicking the three dots at the end, you will delete a post or edit the post information after you publish it.

Tap one so that it's gray and set to Off, if you don't want your photo posted on some single social network.
