Today I thought I'd share with you guys some quick and easy ways to edit your iPhone photos to make them look nicer. For so many of us, Instagram is our little scrapbook where we store our photo memories and even go as far as to make books out of our Instagram photos using sources like Chat Books, etc. Since these images are special, we may as well make them look as nice as we can! You don't have to have a nice camera to have nice photos. Plenty of Instagram users that have thousands of followers use iPhone photography for their entire feed. So much about what makes a photo look great is the way you edit it. I'm no expert but I know a thing or two so I thought I'd share some tips and tricks with you guys on editing your phone photos.
The first thing you want to do is get a photo editing app on your phone. I use Snapseed but there are plenty of other great apps. I never use the Instagram filters simply because I like for my photos to have a clean and natural look but that's just a personal preference. The editing tools on Instagram make my photos look grainy so I stay away from those as well. Occasionally I'll use the vignette feature to make my edges a little darker if I feel like it needs it but otherwise I don't even mess with the tools. Snapseed has a lot of great editing tools and here's some examples of before and after photos that I've taken with my phone then edited in Snapseed.
All of that editing talk may seem a little overwhelming but once you start playing around with it you'll pick it up quickly. These tips are just basics and a great place to start. Snapseed has really cool tutorial videos within the app that you can watch and learn different techniques. They're very short videos and worth watching to learn how to make the most out of your photos! I hope you found this helpful! When it doubt, make your photo just a little bit brighter and it will (probably almost always) automatically look better.
