Instagram started it; Facebook has it now and, of course, social micro-blogging service Twitter won't be left behind. Twitter has followed suit with it's own editing and filtering functionality update in version 5.2. Here is a list of changes and new features:
Create beautiful photos right within Twitter, with filters powered by Aviary.
- Apply one of eight different filters to instantly add a new look and feel to your photos
- Choose a filter by comparing all your options in a convenient grid view or by swiping through each version
- Make your photos pop with balanced light and colors by tapping the auto-enhance wand
- Crop and scale to frame the action the way you want
- We’ve also added many other improvements and fixes to this update.

Pixelmator, the app that we like to refer to as "Photoshop for the masses," has just updated with a big release this morning bringing powerful new features to the Mac app. Pixelmator 2.1 introduces iCloud sync, Mountain Lion service sharing (allowing one to send images directly to Facebook, iPhoto, Flickr, Aperture, and more,) as well as support for the Macbook Pro with Retina display.
Additionally, new photo effects allow you to quickly add filters (vintage, miniaturize, rain, snow, etc.) to your images, and the Effects Browser lets you preview them quickly and easily.
Last, the price of the app has been dramatically reduced, as Pixelmator is now selling for $14.99, way down from the $59.99 price tag. You can buy Pixelmator on the Mac App Store.
