So I’ve recently gotten a lot of requests concerning how I edit my Instagram photos, so I thought; Why not make a quick and easy guide for you guys. This guide will explain the way I edit the photograph, step-by-step. We’re going to use a cup of coffee as our example, since that’s a pretty common thing to post on Instagram.. right?
The first thing I always do is to access the photo in my iphone’s picture gallery, and press “edit” in the top right-hand corner.
With the picture ready for editing, i start off by enabling the “auto-editing” function. I then use the fade-filter.
In step three i adjust exposure and contrast in varying degrees according to the given picture. For instance, in picture 3, i have decreased the exposure and enhanced the contrast. Moreover, the glance-lighting is decreased, since I find that suitable for this picture.
We now move on to use the Instagram app itself. In here, I turn down the heat of the picture.
The Instagram app also has the functions of “structure” and “sharpness”. I have turned up both of these functions to enhance the sharpness and details of the photo.
So now you have an idea of how I edit mainstream pictures myself on Instagram. This stuff isn’t the most pro stuff out there, but I like to keep it simple.
