Say goodbye to chopping down photos into enforced squares.

The app that uses algorithms to tweak your photos into artistic masterpieces, Prisma, spent the six months since it debuted in June applying its filters to videos and Facebook Live in early November. Though the social titan soon shut down the latter, the app continues to release features. The latest: A location-based GeoFeed and ditching the square image format, adding a free aspect ratio to your converted photos.

Content shared to the Feed is only shown to nearby users, but the more "likes" it gets, the farther out from the user it'll be shown. This larger range carries over to the next post a user shares. In addition to the freeform ratio, photo resolution has doubled -- important for making particularly crisp artistic shots.
