Instagram’s new filters: Which is your fave?

Fat Mum Slim /

So while you were singing carols and eating eggnog {do people actually drink that?} Instagram quietly gave birth to some new filters.

Merry Christmas to you, indeed.

They also added in a little bit more functionality too. And because Instagram is my favourite social media platform and because I’m a geek through and through, I thought I’d share a little bit about the update.

Again, Merry Christmas.

First, I’d like to introduce you to the new members of the filter family… Slumber, Crema, Ludwig, Aden and Perpetua. Mother and children are all doing well.


That’s a lot of filters going on, right?

But even better news. If you’ve got a favourite child filter, and let’s not all pretend here we know it’s not Kelvin, you can remove the filters you don’t want to show {they won’t be deleted permanently} and you can shuffle the order so you can show your favourite, and most used filters first.

To remove filters, or reshuffle the order, just scroll along in the filter section until you see the ‘manage’ clog. Click it. And then you can hold down the filter you want to move for a second and then move it. Or just remove the tick from the filters you want to hide.


Which is your favourite?

  • I get so excited when there are new filters haha. Can’t wait to give them a spin ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I’m so glad I saw this post. I didn’t realize I had an update that needed to be downloaded. To think, I’ve been missing out! I love that you can re-organize or hide the filters you don’t really like!!

    I love me some new filters but I love the Little Moments ones more. I love Instagram to bits but when it comes to filters they could learn a lot from Little Moments! Shuffling filters is a thing! Who knew?! (Thankfully, you did, otherwise I would have been in the dark until infinity and beyond!)

  • Big ol’ fan of crema so far. Hooray!

  • I like them all! Slumber and Aden in particular – gives the pics a little bit of a summery feel ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Ooh I use to get so excited by a new filter, now I don’t remember the last time I actually used one.

    I know what you’re thinking…..what’s the point huh!

    Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family Chantelle. xx

    Ha! I left a comment on FB about kelvin and then read your blog post! Great minds!
    I do love Valencia normally but to be honest I love and use pic tap go app filters more!

  • I love a new filter and these ones are so exciting, I have to keep swapping around and then usually end up with Amaro anyway. Good tip on hiding the ones we never use *cough* Kelvin *cough

    Love filters…… im was so excited when I updated insta and found them. Love insta โ™กโ™ก who knew you could move and hide them…. awesome. Off to play …. have a great day ๐Ÿ˜€

  • I didn’t know about being able to change the order, that makes it so much more convenient! Valencia is definitely my number 1!

  • I love the Aden filter, and thanks for that extra tip I didn’t realise you could change the order ! x

  • I really love the Toaster filter and I use it on every post. Out of the new ones, I’d have to say that I love Perpetua!

    I definitely love ‘Aden’ makes up most of my instagram feed’s filters. I use varying amounts of that filter and then different edits on lighting, etc. But I like to keep my photos relatively natural in appearance. Love your blog as ever Chantelle . – Can’t wait til the first of June when I’m going to be taking part in the photo a day challenge on instagram – @zanderwestt

  • I’m all over Crema or Aden.
