Instagram is bringing a beam of light to users’ images.

The Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network announced its newest face filter for photos for Instagram Stories or sharing via Instagram Direct.

Instagram said in a blog post that face filters work with Boomerang, Rewind and its other camera formats and creative tools, adding, “Today, you’ll see a new face filter that lets you brighten up the moment by placing a beam of light on your selfie or the world around you—even if the sun isn’t shining. Tap the light to change between the vertical and horizontal orientation or tap anywhere on the screen to move it.”

Users need version 10.21 and higher of the Instagram application for iOS or Android to use face filters.
