You no longer have to worry about perfecting the filter on your Instagram in one go. Now, you can save drafts of your photos before you post them. The photo-sharing app, which launched six years ago this October, just debuted a drafts feature, and you don’t need to update the app to activate it.

All you have to do is hit the back button once you’ve started editing your photo (say, a picture of your cat like the one below), and the app will prompt you to save a draft. The next time you go to post a photo, you’ll find your drafts just below the last photo in your library (say, a different photo of your cat) and above the rest of your library images. Like so:

For obsessive photo-editors who like to toggle back and forth between their filtered images and others in their library, it's a blessing to be able to press pause on whatever contrast or lighting tweaks have already been made. And now, you could even save different versions of the same image with a bunch of different filters and look at them side-by-side, just to be sure that Valencia really is your favorite.

More detailed instructions on how to save your drafts are here.
