Gadget insurance brand recommends filters as compared to photo style

Shutterbugs know about Instagram filters. For everyone else, gadget insurance brand, Protect Your Bubble, has a list of the best Instagram filters.  Each one has a different effect and use, so play around with them to find the perfect match to the perfect shot.

  1. TOASTER – High exposure and corner vignettes make this one a popular choice.
    Ideal uses – Nights out on the town, picnics and backyard summertime BBQ shots.
  2. INKWELL – Before color, pictures were always in black and white.  Expert developers could really set the blacks and whites in deep contrast, something Inkwell does automatically.
    Ideal uses – Classical and old school shots or hide bad lighting with the Normal setting.
  3. KELVIN – Look through old photo albums and find the older pictures with grainy borders, scratches and a thick border.  That is Kelvin.
    Ideal uses – Anytime a retro look is appropriate.
  4. RISE – Looking for a glow and soft lighting?  Look no further than Rise.
    Ideal uses – Close up shots of people, particularly children and babies.
  5. HUDSON – A colder look and feel brings out an icy look with a slight tint.
    Ideal uses – Outside shots of buildings and monuments especially.
  6. SUTRO – Almost a black and white, but more smoky with deep purples and browns.
    Ideal uses – Halloween and anytime there is a need for something with a dark edge.
  7. XPRO II – Want to make colors stand out and look deep?  Try this one.
    Ideal uses – Any deep colors, both inside and out depending on the subject.
  8. LO-FI – Colors and shadows together make for strong images.
    Ideal uses – Shots of people and food, particularly while on vacation in exotic locales.
  9. BRANNAN – Greyish tint for dark shots and metallic appearances.
    Ideal uses – Shots with strong shadows and night pictures with low light.
  10. AMARO - Adds light to the image and moves the focus to the center.
    Ideal uses - Outside shots with low sunlight.
