One of my favorite features in VSCO Cam is the slider that allows you to control the intensity of each filter. Fellow photo-editing app Aviary has just introduced similar functionality to its iOS app, giving mobile photographers greater control over the look and feel of their images.

To unlock the new granular control, users will need to open a photo and select the Effects option from the toolbar, followed by an analog-inspired filter of their choice. By tapping the filter icon once more, an intensity slider will appear at the bottom of the screen. The slider runs from 0 to 100 percent and hitting the tick icon in the bottom right-hand corner will apply the changes.

The Android app is yet to receive this new feature, but we suspect it won’t be too long before Aviary brings it across to Google’s hugely popular mobile OS.
