Here’s a great way to edit & brighten your Instagram photos
I know this may seem silly to some, but to others who are growing a business through Instagram may like for it too look a little prettier. Even if you just want your Instagram to look clean doing this edit to some photos may help.
Whether you have taken a photo on a professional camera or just your normal mobile phone, most times the photo may come out looking dull & dark. (PS. This is not making any changes to you in the photo, just to the darkness in the photo) it’ll literally be making the photo look more perkier and brighter.
As there many photo editing apps you can download, I have settled on using ‘Snapseed’ click here, to check it out at the app store. It is available on both apple & android, woohoo!!!
I’ll be doing a step by step process kind of thing! Very basic, let’s start!
Open Snapseed, and choose the photo in which you want to brighten & define.
Press the little pencil in the bottom corner, and press tune image. In tune image, I only use:
- Brightness – which I up quite a little (whatever tickles your fancy)
- Highlights – I also do the same as above
- Shadows – which I bring down a little
Next, if you find a particular section of your photo may be a little darker than the other parts, you can choose the selective tool (which is in your little pencil bar) choose the area, and pinch with both fingers to really choose the area and you can brighten it here and define it.
Lastly, I structure & sharpen my photos. In the pencil editing menu choose the ‘define’ option which you can both sharpen & structure your picture. I do not use much of this, but it’s nice to use it sometimes to really define your picture.
Before & After
Filter for photos:
I do not necessarily use filter but if you want to add a filter to your photo, I would suggest VSCO Cam, click here to check it out in the app store. Once again this is a great app for filters, which you can adjust and play around with, also available on apple & android.
Lots of love,
