For the smartphone shutterbugs out there, Yahoo is rolling out some fresh hotness. The new Flickr app for iOS not only gives you a handful of sweet new filters, it also lets you customize the filters and make them all your own. And it features something the Flickr team calls a “Live Preview.”

In Live Preview mode, you can see the filter applied to whatever your camera’s pointed at before you press the shutter button. This way, you can decide which filter looks best before taking the photo.
