How I edit my Instagram photos


Editing my Instagram photos is something that I really enjoy because I love brightening photos, etc... I've stuck with my whole Instagram theme of bright photos for a while and I love it. How I edit my photos is quite simple as I only use one app and do like five things. To edit I use the Photoshop app, I find it so easy to use and it doesn't take me that long to edit. 


The first thing I do is crop or straighten any photos if I need to.


First of all I turn up the Exposure, normally to around 50, depending on how bright or dark the photo is! I love making my photos bright.


I then turn up the Contrast to around 40-50. 


Next is Highlights, I turn that up to around 24!


After that I go to Clarity. This makes some things stand out. I usually turn this up to around 25-30, depending on the lighting of the photo because I find that it can sometimes make my photos a bit darker.


Lastly I sharpen my photos. I don't sharpen them massively, I usually have it under 10!


And that's how I edit my Instagram photos. I then put my photos into VSCO cam, not to edit them, but to see if they look ok next to my other photos before I upload them.



Do you have an Instagram theme? What's your favourite app to edit photos on?

  4. I try to make sure that all the photos look good together but sometimes I completely fail! I always use VSCO Cam to edit my photos and I think it's amazing that you can actually see how they would look on instagram! :) x
