Instagram today unveiled three new filters, as well as the ability to use emojis in hashtags.

In a blog post, the Facebook-owned photo and video sharing service said it is introducing Lark, Reyes, and Juno, “a family of modern, subtle filters that brighten and enhance your photos in refined, beautiful ways.”

Instagram last introduced filters — five, to be exact — in December, although it put out a set of “color tools” earlier this month. The company also said that it plans on releasing more filters on a regular basis going forward. As for the ones released today:

Lark desaturates reds while punching up blues and greens to bring your landscapes to life. Reyes brings a dusty, vintage look to your moments. And finally, Juno tints cool tones green while making warm tones pop and whites glow for vibrant photos of people.

In addition to the new filters, which brings the total available to users to 23, Instagram also said it now enables using emoji in hashtags. “With emoji hashtags,” Instagram wrote, “you can discover even more by adding them to your own photos and videos, searching them on the Explore page, and tapping on them when you see them in captions.”

Twitter, of course, has recently started letting users add Star Wars emojis via hashtags.
