Google+ has introduced a range of photo filters that users can apply to images.

In a move that's making Instagram-like effects available to social-networking photographers, Google+ now has 25 new photo filters to change the look and feel of photos. It was always a race to see which site would roll them out first — with Facebook also planning to release a similar feature.

The filters are extensive and include effects like Daguerreotype, green fade and black-and-white, as well as film simulations such as Reala 400 and Polaroid. You can even layer the effects on top of one another and adjust the intensity with a slider. Find the filters in the edit tab of the photo lightbox in Google+, then click the Creative Kit.
