Good Morning all! It’s a new week and it’s the last week full week of October! Can anyone else believe it? I seriously feel like the month had just started. I still have so much more I want to do and I seriously feel like I have no time! Anyone else feeling my pain? Today’s post will be something that was voted yes on Instagram by so many of you! I’m talking about 3 Photo Apps that I use to Edit my Instagram Photos.
For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about then I’ll show you the two photos I also shared to those on my Instagram above. I took a poll and got so many “yes” so here I am today to share my three favorite editing apps. Let’s jump right into it!
So I’m sure so many of you have heard this one by now but VSCO is one of my favorite editing apps! I know there is a love hate relationship with it but really focusing on the different settings to fit your aesthetic is key. I used to not really use VSCO because I thought there was always too much going on and didn’t really get into the editing portion of it. Now that I’ve been able to play around and really focus on one or two settings as my settings I’ve never turned back!
My two favorite filters are Clean S3 and Hypebeast HB2. Depending on the original photo if there are a lot of colors or it’s more muted I will adjust using one of these two filters. I also go ahead and edit exposure, tint, sharpen, and contrast in this app. I’ve shared the two different settings in the photo above for those who don’t use VSCO.
Another amazing photo editing app is Snapseed. This one also has different “looks” if you want to use the different filters they have. I don’t ever really use the filters I just go straight into the tools. They offer so many great and different tools but my favorite one is details and brush. I know I said I use the sharpen tool in VSCO but not going to lie sometimes it doesn’t exactly give me what I want. The one on Snapseed is nice because it grows very slowly and isn’t rounded at all so you can get those great details to really pop!
My other favorite tool is the brush tool especially the exposure tool. I like having a bright feed and by bright I don’t mean colorful I mean just sharp, bright photos. This tool helps me achieve that even more than they would be because yes most editing apps have a way to brighten photos. The difference between this tool and others is that you can brighten certain parts of the photo. Sometimes the entire photo doesn’t need to be brighten but maybe your shirt could be a bit whiter or brighter because of a shadow. I use this tool in almost EVERY photo!
The last photo editing app I want to talk about is Facetune. This has been my app for such a long time and by my app I mean I can’t live without it! I’ve had this on my phone for quite some time because it’s a perfect on the go app. So, if you saw in the photo above I completely took out the boy walking behind me. Well this app made that possible.
The main tool I use in this app is the patch tool. Now to use this tool you will need some time and patience maybe even a lot. The ending product could be amazing if you truly take the time. Once you hit on the patch tool, you can tap anywhere on the photo. You will see two circles come up, one with a small line in it and one without it. The one with the line in is where you will more or less be copying from and the one without it is where you will copying to. You can see in the picture I hid the boys shoe with grass. The last result was pretty much the boy being hidden by pumpkins in the same patch, grass, and dirt.
The last tool I use on this app once I’m done using the patch tool is the smooth tool. You can see there are two different options smooth and smoother. I usually just use smooth and kind of tap around the area where I just used the patch tool so it doesn’t look to choppy. This really is the best finishing factor.
I hope this was helpful for your guys and if you need any help or have any questions with anything let me know!
