Ready to spice up the bajillions of photos stored on your phone?
Rapid fire tips to edit and uplevel the thousands of photos just sitting on your phone (copies and copies of the same photos, people), so clear ‘em out, choose your favorites and open your favorite editing app (even Instagram) to work on these changes.
Your personal preferences and style will determine where you are on the scale of those edits, but make it how you want to see it! For example, I love a little grain, dark shadows, warmer tones, but photographer friends of mine love everything smooth, bright and white. It’s up to you! I would suggest playing with each slider and just see what it does to the photo and what you gravitate toward.
My favorite iPhone apps are listed below if you’re interested in looking them up, but like I said Instagram has editing software and dang, so does your phone. Learn your style and start doing something with the piles of images stocked up on your albums.
-VSCO (I start with one of their presets and tweak from there)
-Afterlight (I use this for resizing and black and white images)
-Instagram (usually use the structure tool to add texture or the tilt shift if I want to blur something)
-ColorStory (I used to use it for brightening whites)
-Lightroom (Haven’t used it, but photog friends swear by it)
That’s all folks, if something in here is helpful, tag me when you post on Facebook or Instagram and I would love to see!
