Yahoo today released a new update of its Flickr app for iOS. The update brings a host of new features such as filters and more camera tools, it also removes the paywall on some features that were previously only available to pro users. The app now allows users to apply filters before they actually take a photo. They can apply the filters to the live camera feed. Several new filters have also been added, users can also customize them if they want.
The new camera tool in Flickr iOS update include grids, focus lock, pinch to zoom and enhanced ability to manage exposure points. The paywall has been dropped on several pro features such as photo enhancing, cropping, adjusting color and tonal levels, sharpening and vignettes. As of now only the iOS app has been updated, the new features are yet to be added to Flickr’s Android app. There’s no saying when that will happen. Filters have become incredibly popular, particularly since Instagram became a massive hit. Most photography apps offer a unique set to users, Flickr upping its filter game is evidence that Yahoo wants it photo-sharing service to keep up with the times. Flickr for iOS is available as a free download from iTunes App Store.
