This morning, the FX Photo Studio 4.0 update hit the App Store. This update adds plenty of new features to this excellent iPhone photo app, including new filters, masking, and new file sharing options.

We’ve reviewed the previous version of FX Photo Studio here. It’s a great, all-around filter app with enough goodies and usability for every level of iPhoneographer.

The update has a lot of great details. FX Photo Studio 4.0 now includes 194 high quality effects and filters. You can now choose to import images with a square crop for easy Instagram posting. And with Instagram’s new API’s, you can now upload your processed images directly to Instagram from within the app.

Once you link the app to your Facebook account, importing images from your Facebook photo albums (and images you are tagged in) is as easy and seamless as importing from your photo library. This is a very social photo-sharing aware update of this powerhouse app.

FX Photo Studio is still old iPhone friendly and will run on any iPhone or iPod Touch.
