Big news for Instagram today, as the photo-centric social network is adding new filters and a new hashtag feature.
First up, Instagram is launching three new photo filters call Lark, Reyes, and Juno. Instagram says that the Lark filter will desaturate reds and boost the blues and greens in your photos, while Reyes will add a “dusty, vintage look” to your shots. Finally, Juno will add a green tint to coll colors while “making warm tones pop and whites glow,” which Instagram suggests will be good for portraits.
The other new feature being added to Instagram today is support for emojis in hashtags. Emojis have exploded in popularity lately, with many folks communicating only in emojis on a regular basis. It’s no surprise to see Instagram respond to this popularity by baking support for emojis into hashtags, and I bet that it’s going to be a popular feature.
