VSCO Cam, the widely popular free image editing utility, has just updated to version 3.0—and with the new version comes a decidedly more social bent. Among a suite of other updates, now you can follow other photographers on the VSCO Grid network, giving you the option to keep up with what photographer you like are doing, and without the need to double-post everything to Instagram.

If you haven't tried VSCO Cam before, this makes an excellent time to jump on board. It's a free app, with a host of powerful editing tools, and a built-in set of filters. While good in their own right, you can expand on them by paying extra for additional filters to tweak your images even further.

Unfortunately, the 3.0 version of the software is iPhone only for now—but so far, VSCO has been quick to update the Android version of the software, so hopefully it won't take too long before that version gets the extra functionality, too.

Here's the official list of changes, but the one thing we were really hoping for that hasn't landed yet is the ability to share to multiple image services simultaneously, rather than having to select one at a time. Maybe the next version!

- VSCO Grid natively integrated into VSCO Cam - Search and follow other VSCO photographers - View the curated VSCO Grid, a collection of amazing images - New Level & Tilt in Camera ensures your photos are always straight - Order Presets alphabetically with one click - Image Detail supports Pinch to Zoom - Improved Crop Tool for a smoother, more accurate experience - iPhone 4 now displays Preset preview thumbnails - Updated UI/UX - Improved Share functionality - iPhone 4s responsiveness greatly improved - Accuracy adjustments to Temperature Tool - Updated location and privacy settings - Various bug fixes and performance enhancements
