Tired of your go-to Instagram filters? Meet Lark, Reyes, and Juno, Instagram’s newest additions to your creative toolbox.

The new filters are inspired by outdoor adventures, the company said Monday. Lark is designed for landscapes shots, emphasizing blues and greens while desaturating reds. Juno punches up warm tones and whites, perfect for people shots, while Reyes adds a “dusty, vintage look” to your outdoor images.

After the popular photo-sharing network added five filters last December, the ensuing excitement from the Instagram community was so great that the company plans to regular roll out new filters. Two of those five additions, Ludwig and Crema, have become Instagram’s most-used filters. (I can already tell Reyes is going to be a personal favorite.)

Monday’s update also includes a slightly different look for hearts and comments, plus the ability to use emoji hashtags. That’s right: Instagram now recognizes hashtagged emoji. I’m not sure how useful filtering photos by the winky-face emoji will be, but go nuts.
