Twitter Adds Instagram-Like Photo Filters

Last Monday, Twitter added photo filters so that users can now edit and refine photos through the mobile photo-editing firm Aviary.

The announcement from Twitter came just after Instagram pulled the popular Twitter Cards support from its app. With the support gone, Instagram images uploaded to Twitter showed up as links instead of actual photos. Despite the timing of the deal, former CEO and co-founder of Aviary, Avi Muchnick, claimed it was all coincidental and that they Aviary had been actively working with Twitter for months.


Aviary Photo Filters and Features

Here are few of the new Aviary photo features:

  • Filters. 8 different filters ranging from black and white to vintage to change the look and feel of your photos
  • Bird’s Eye View. See how each filter would affect your photos in a single grid view, making it easier to choose which filter to use on your photo.
  • Frame the action. Crop and pinch to zoom in on the photo
  • Auto-enhance. Balance light and colors by using the wand feature.

Aviary has 25 million active monthly users and partners with 2,500 applications such as Flickr, Yahoo, Mail, Imgur, Twitpic and Shopify. Aviary announced today that over the weekend 2 million people installed the app.
