NEW YORK (AP) - The photo sharing app Instagram is adding editing tools that go beyond the vintage-looking filters that made it popular.
The Facebook-owned app says in a blog post that users will be able to adjust the brightness, contrast, saturation and other features of photos they take with their smartphones.
The new tools are available after downloading the newest version of Instagram, 6.0, on Android or Apple phones. The photo editing tools will appear under a wrench icon.
Instagram's older filters can enhance photos or add a certain hue to them. Other apps have more powerful editing tools to fix photos that have not available on the service.
Instagram has over 200 million users.
