10 Best Instagram Filters & Effects


So if you aren’t wanting to use the filters and effects within the Instagram app, you might not know where else to look. We suggest the YouCam Perfect app, which, among other things, has a load of free effects you can take advantage of, and that you can customize to your liking. Let’s talk about the ten best filters and effects for you to use on your Instagram content!


1. Paris Filter

The best part of all is that you can adjust the intensity of the filter with YouCam Perfect. In the Instagram app, you can only apply or remove it. To find this effect, tap Photo Edit then Effects. Then tap the Store icon, and within the Premium Effects section, you’ll see the Paris Filter Pack.
