Instagram is the place we go to for our travel inspiration these dayS. 

We've discovered so many new and wonderful places when planning trips away thanks to the app, places we never would have dreamed or known existed. 

Travel bloggers have been a huge part of the travel industry for the past few years, with their perfectly lit, turquoise sea shots swaying the accommodation decisions of millions of travellers. 

However, while Instagram is known for its glorious photography and stunning travel shots, there is key part of the Insta image we often forget about – editing. 

One travel blogger, known as The Ginger Wanderlust, has been letting her followers in on the tricks of the travel blogging trade with her dramatic before-and-after travel shots. 

Ellie Green, the brain behind the blog, has been showcasing her personal editing tricks on her Instagram. 

Sharing the same image twice, one edited to blogger standard and one which has never felt the touch of the brightening tool, Ellie has transparently educated her following on how to edit their own images, and revealed how things actually look in the process. 

While the reality of her images is still stunning, it's amazing to see the difference a bit of editing can do. 

In Ellie's reveals, the water is always beautifully turquoise, the sandy pearly white, and the sunsets blossoming with streaks of pink and purple. 

Her snaps manage to showcase the beauty of her surroundings, while reminding us that Instagram can differ quite a bit from reality when it comes to travel locations.

 We are major Instagram addicts at SHEmazing HQ, so when we stumbled upon this major hack, we were pretty impressed. 

The photo-sharing app has quite a few delightful filters you can add over images to jazz them up a little, but sometimes the line-up can feel a tad stale.

Little did we know, but there are actually 40 filters to choose from on the app, but some of them are hiding.

When you edit an image, scroll to the very end where you'll find an application called Manage. 

Once you click in, you'll see a scroll page featuring all the usual filters (some of which will be greyed out if you followed our other Instagram hack…)

However if you scroll down, it will soon become clear that there are a whole host of other filters that haven't been activated. 

All you have to do it tap and activate the ones you want to try out, and with 18 secret ones to choose from, your Insta page is about to get a major refresh. 

And voila, when you click back out of Manage, there will be a brand new line-up of filters in the Insta-assembly line with your old favourites.

The amount of new choices is pretty amazing, whether you want to brighten up a landscape image or salvage a selfie, there are now so many ways to do it. 

The 'what filter?' question is about to get tougher…
