Are you one of those Instagram users who can never decide on a filter? Do you spend an hour trying to find the right light balance and contrast to make your selfies look like professional glamour shots?

Now you’re in luck, because the photo sharing app will soon allow users to save their work mid-post, then return to it later. Instagram began testing the Drafts feature with select users in August, according to Mashable.

When you hit the back button while editing or adding a filter to a post, Instagram will ask you if you want to save it as a draft. Tap “Save Draft” and you can return to the image in a Drafts library the next time you open the app. You can also opt to delete a draft if you later decide you don’t want to post the photo or start over with a new edit.

The Facebook-owned social app is constantly tweaking features to better compete with Snapchat. In the past few months it added pinch and zoom, rolled out Instagram Stories, and removed its Maps feature.
