Instagram filters are one of the most used features on the platform. While photo filters have been around for a while, Instagram took photo and video filters to a whole different level by listening to the community and adding the effects people wanted the most.
With over 40 filters available on the Instagram app, rifling through all the options to find your favorite filter can be hard and time-consuming, especially if you use your favorite filters all the time.
That said, there is a way to rearrange the filters and have your favorite ones in front. That way, you can instantly find the filters you need for your photos and reduce the time it takes for you to edit your photos, videos, stories, and reels.
Finding the Filters on Instagram
To access all the filters available on Instagram, you have first to choose or take a photo, video, reel, or story you want to post. Once you reach the editing phase, Instagram will present you with all editing possibilities, including the Instagram filters.
Now that you know where to find Instagram filters, let’s take a look at the simple process you have to follow to rearrange them.
How to Rearrange the Order of IG Filters for Posts
Rearranging the order of your Instagram filters when posting an image is surprisingly easy. First, you need to go ahead and follow the process of uploading a photo until you reach the editing phase.
When the different choices for filters pop up, all you have to do is tap and hold the filter you want to move forward and drag toward the front. You can do that for all of the filters you want to move forward, which will effectively push back the ones that are currently occupying the first few slots.
Alternatively, you can also go to the settings icon of the app and look for the list of filters. From there, you can simply tap and hold the filters again to rearrange them.
While shifting around your filters might seem complicated, it’s actually not that hard at all. All you need to do is find the filters you want to move forward, hold your finger on them, and drag them toward the front.
Once they are settled in their new position, Instagram will automatically save them there, meaning the next time you upload a photo, video, reel, or story, your favorite filters will be right at the front.
