Flickr getting into the act, will offer 12 photo filters with newly re-designed app for the Apple iPhone
With Instagram adding a new photo filter (Willow) the other day, and Twitter starting up 8 filters of its own, it almost seems natural to expect photo sharing app Flickr to add filters of its own. The 16 new filters are available on the Apple iPhone version of its app. The redesigned Flickr has some new features in addition to the filters. The app can now be accessed using other accounts including Facebook or Google. Photos can be shared to Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter or via email.

The app is free on the Apple App Store, but those using the Apple iPad need to be warned. There is no version released that is optimized for the Apple iPad, at least for now. The redesigned app has a easier sign-up and registration process and now offers full Groups capabilities.

The filters battle is now on between Instagram, Twitter and now Flickr (iPhone only).

I just can't understand it either?? In my opinion I see this as a fad that will quickly fade. I hate receiving pictures from instagram of cups of coffee or of the subway car with all types of filters added to try and make it look like a professional photographer took it when it is clearly obvious that it's over done filters on a phone . It has made apps that do these things fall out of favor with me. But I know everyone is not me so to each their own.

These 'app filters' are for amateurs..or kids.. but for casual shots and social networking, why not? Still best with Photoshop on a PC.
