Hey everyone, happy Friday! I hope you’ve all had a good week. I have been enjoying my last couple of days of summer before I head back to the books. Back to school means, more outfit posts and back to school outfit ideas coming very soon! Get excited.
So for today’s post, I am showing you how I edit my Instagram pictures. I don’t do much but I definitely have a few apps and steps that I use on every picture.
Camera – Most of my photos are taken on my iPhone 7 plus. The quality of the 7 plus camera is great so I take advantage of that as much as I can. Sometimes I shoot with photographers and they do the editing so I wont edit professional pictures at all.
Apps – I usually take my photo into Snapseed first. In snapseed I use the White Balance tool. This tool allows you to add or take away temperature. Depending on the picture I will add a little or take some away. I like my feed to be bright but, warm toned. After using the White Balance tool, I use the Brush tool to either add or take away saturation to a certain area of the picture. I like that this tool allows you to add certain things to specific parts of your picture. So if my legs look a little dull I can just use this too to add a little saturation to just legs and not the entire picture. I also use snapseed to get rid of things in the background of my photo. If there is a cigarette on the ground or a coffee cup I use the Healing tool to get rid of it.
The next app I use is VSCO. After saving my photo from snapseed I take it into VSCO and add a filter. I use the filter A6 on every photo and I usually bring it down to about 5-5.5. After I add the filter I turn the exposure up a little depending on the picture. I like to keep it around 1. I also bring the contrast down to about 0.5. Sometimes I will add a little bit of saturation but it depends on the picture. If the picture is a little dull I will add some if the picture is vibrant I will take some away. Like I said before I like to keep my photos bright but very warm toned.
That is all I do to edit my pictures, like I said I don’t do too much but these steps definitely make a huge difference. The last app I use is called UNUM this app is great for making sure your photos flow with one another. You can move photos around to see what would look best with your theme or to see if a picture matches your theme.
Hope this was helpful! Leave your Instagram handles in the comments I would love to check them out! 🙂
