Three new filters and emoji support come to Instagram via latest update

[dropcaps]Filters are the heart of what makes Instagram so popular to use. Sure, the fact that you can share your photos in seconds for the world to see plays a great part in the Instagram experience, but it’s the fact that you can make your picture come to life with filters that truly makes it a winning app.[/dropcaps]

Instagram appears to agree with our sentiments, as they have released three new filter for all to use. Lark, Reyes, and Juno are now available for download via an update to the app and with them come some new interesting ways to modify your pictures. Instagram says they are “…modern, subtle filters that brighten and enhance your photos in
refined, beautiful ways”, and after using them ourselves, we can’t honestly disagree. After snagging the updates from the Play Store, we got to work by taking some pictures of our sounding area. The Lark filter made images appear much brighter than they would otherwise, but it did to without making the images look washed out and dull. The Reyes filter had a similar effect of making images appear

After snagging the updates from the Play Store, we got to work by taking some pictures of our sounding area. The Lark filter made images appear much brighter than they would otherwise, but it did to without making the images look washed out and dull. The Reyes filter had a similar effect of making images appear brighter but in a more vintage way. The filter made our pictures appear as if they had been taken in an old, sunny day, western setting. The final filter is Juno which took a step in the opposite direction that its two siblings and made images a bit darker, though not in an overpowering way.

All three filters are a welcome addition to the already sizable selection that Instagram has to offer and we highly recommend you go and try the new ones our for yourself. For as the old adage goes, pictures speak a thousand words, and we can do no justice to describe how these filters will affect your future images.

One final notable feature that is also included in this update is emoji support for hashtags. Instagram has taken into account how popular emojis have become over the past several years and they wish to integrate them more into the Instagram experience. You will now be able to include them in your hashtags, search for them in the explore page, and be able to tap on them in captions.

Overall, this is a great update for the image sharing app as it comes with some very neat new features. So, what are you waiting for? Head on over to the Play Store and start Instagramming!
