How to edit your Instagram photos and the best apps to do it

The key to capture the attention of the majority of the users in Instagram, being this a social media based on visual elements, is an eye-catching and quality photo.

However, you don’t need to be a professional photographer for that. Today we leave you some tips on how to edit your photos like a pro.

In the first place, you should have a quality photo. The light is a very important part of the process, therefore you should favour the natural light. Take a few photos with the right size for the app, in a way that it doesn’t stay too small. You will also want to adjust the angle of the photo.

Having taken the photo, we get to the respective edition. You should adjust the exposure (light), contrast (distinction between the dark and light), saturation (vivacity of the colors), etc. making it clear. Make sure that you don’t exaggerate and you adjust the photo in a way to highlight its best qualities.

If you wish, you can opt for the use of filters. Instagram provides filters to suit all moods and tastes, adaptable to your image. Choose your favorite and use it in all of your posts, in order to create a fixed and uniformed style on your feed.

To do it, you can use Instagram’s options, or a separate application. Between the best applications to edit your Instagram photos you can find the following:

  • VSCO - used a lot by professionals, with a variety of filters in the free option and even a camera which helps you to take the perfect picture;
  • A Color Story - an intuitive application which focus more on the whites and the colors of your image;
  • Adobe Photoshop Express - with diverse functionalities besides the edition of an image, that include red eye reduction, stickers, text, collages, etc;
  • Adobe Photoshop Lightroom - distinguishes itself for the possibility of management of colors and strong dominance of the light, besides allowing you to take pictures in HDR (High Dynamic Range).

After the edition of your image, you are ready for the last step: the publication. Instagram allows you to publish more than one photo at the same time, so you don’t have to worry if you are indecisive. If it isn’t the best time to publish it, you can always save the post in the drafts and make it later.

The important thing to stand out in the middle of so many amazing photos is to keep original and creative. Make sure to keep your photos with the best quality possible, to bring out the best of them and to capture the attention of your followers.
