Whenever a new update comes up on Instagram, one of the first things that people talk about is how many filters have been added to the palate.

Instagram filters are a great way to make your pictures look fantastic, but one often-overlooked capability on the platform is the ability to customize your pictures in very specific ways.

By hopping from Filters to the Tools tab on Instagram, you have the option to adjust the picture with greater control. The sliding scale on each effect allows you to apply only as much of it as you desire. You also have the option to add a filter to the picture after applying your edits.

Here are the options available to users who want to achieve a more unique look under the Tools category.
