❝My Instagram editing secrets!❞ Uh.. Instagram... It's kind of a never ending story, isn't it? Everybody's talking about Instagram, it almost feels like it's the most important thing in the world, when it's really not. I highly recommend you reading this article where I was talking about the crazy Instagram game and why we should all take it not too seriously. This article today is for all those of you, who love Instagram because of it's creativity you can put into. For me personally, Instagram is the best place to be creative, to share what you love and to connect with others with same interests.
You might have heard about different ''Instagram themes'' haven't you? That's exactly what we are talking about. Well, kind of. If you take a look at my Instagram feed you probably notice right away that I have a recognizable theme going on and today I'm telling you all my secrets how I edit my Instagram pictures. It's basically all about the different Apps and the idea behind it. If you have an idea in mind, how you want your pictures to look like, it's not that difficult to come to an result you love.
How I edit my Instagram pictures
The first thing I do when editing my Instagram pictures is Facetune. I use it on almost every single picture because it has this really nice whitening tool which is basically the only thing I use it for (beside hiding a pimple sometimes, lol). If there's any white space in my picture I use the whitening tool to make the white even more crisp. You really see a difference if you look at the before and after. Especially for flatlay's it's the best thing to do first! Oh, and if you're as much into ''hair goals'' pictures as I am, you can also select the details tool and make your hair more defined.
After whitening the picture in Facetune I go to Afterlight for brightness, contrast, shadow and to sharpen the picture. Since the iPhone 6 has a really good camera I don't need to sharpen it too much, but a little bit.

Now this is where my ''theme'' happens. You might have noticed that all my pictures have this rosy/pink tint- which is what I do in this App. Simply go to ''tint'' and put it at 25-30. I usually never go over 30, otherwise it would be a little too pink.
This is my all time favorite App- I've been using it for years and years. It just gives the whole picture this more luxurious touch, if you know what I mean. I always use the set PFX Film and then the filter PFX10x. You can also put the filter strength down a little bit, depends on the lighting in your picture.
