How to Organize Your Instagram Filters

hide the ones you use least & find some hid­den gems

Love Cool Instagram Filters & Want to Find Them Faster?

Move one or two filters quickly— Tap & Hold

When post­ing a pho­to in the Insta­gram app, tap and hold on the fil­ter pre­view image and you can drag to move it around (put your most used ones first!) or you can get rid of ones you rarely use by drag­ging them up to the ‘Drag to Hide’ area.

Manage a bunch of filters faster— Manage Filters

The oth­er way to keep things tidy fast is when you are in the fil­ter view for a post, scroll all the way to the end of your fil­ters to the ‘Man­age Fil­ters’ gear icon… tap on that and you can move things around quick­ly, hide the ones you don’t use, etc. Thanks Hoot­suite for this tip.

Bonus… Extra hidden filters!

Did you know you have more fil­ters in Insta­gram than you nor­mal­ly see??! When in the ‘man­age’ area, you can turn on extra hid­den fil­ters and play with them to see if they’ll be your new favorites.

Which Instagram filters do you love mosts?

I’m par­tial to B/W and ones that add a pop or color/contrast.
My tops are: Inkwell. Claren­don, Juno & Lo-Fi. I keep some like Lark & Ves­per around for a dark­er shot that I want peo­ple to see the details bet­ter.

I Love the quick, extra pop of col­or and con­trast from adding the Claren­don fil­ter to an image.
