What are Instagram Effects

Before going into the heart of this tutorial, it seems only right to explain to you first what are the effects on Instagram. As I already mentioned in the introduction of the article, Instagram effects are facial filters that can be applied when creating a new story, in order to use the camera of your device in a nice and original way, both to record video than to take pictures.

The effects available on Instagram – developed both by third parties and directly by the famous photographic social network – are many and saving the ones you want to use more frequently can be a very practical solution, to always have them at your fingertips.

For this reason, Instagram has integrated an ad hoc function that offers the possibility of saving the effects that are considered most useful: using them is a real child’s play, as it is enough to call up the screen relating to the creation of a new story, locate the effect of your interest and press the appropriate button that allows you to save it.
