How I Edit My Instagram Photos

To be completely honest I'm horrible at instagramming (is that a word haha)! I always struggle to take the perfect instagram photo and edit it to perfection. At times though, I'm proud of my posts. My cousin the other day was asking me how I edit my instagram photos because she said they look so nice! These are my tips to editing an instagram photos. I'd love to give you tips on preparing the actual shot but to be totally honest I'm so bad at that! Anyways, here's how I edit my instagram photos! Be sure to follow along on instagram @sprinklesofkate!

The Apps
I use two key apps to edit my instagram photos. My first favorite app is Snapseed! This is honestly the best app for editing dark photos because it lets you brighten them super easily. I also like to crop my photos in this feature. Another favorite app is the classic Vscocam. The F2 filter is a top pick of mine.

The Shot
Shooting an instagram can sometimes be stressful because it's difficult to get the perfect shot. Shoot in square mode because it prevents you from having to crop things out later. Try to make things look as pretty as possible and have natural lighting!

Here's a little before and after of some pictures. Look at what a difference brightening the photo made!

  3. I super love these tips! I'm always guilt of not shooting in square mode and then having to crop stuff out (yikes!). I'll also have to give Snapseed a try, I've never heard of it. You should also check out Afterlight -- it's awesome!

  6. Love your sharing! This APP is really nice, but I think you can use a more professional editing tool. This is website about Discount and Promo Codes for Photo Editor Software. I guess you may be interested in it.
