lately i've been getting more and more questions on how i edit my pictures on instagram. i love it! i've never really understood why some people decide to not share how they edit their pictures or give each other tips, (trust me, they're on there.) but i love coming to instagram for inspiration and seeing other beautiful images. anyways! since the post i did about my favorite apps was a couple of months ago, i decided to show you guys a little 2-step photo editing "trick" on how i edit my pictures on my phone every day. yay!
first things first, these are the apps you will need:
camera+ ($0.99) is going to be how you brighten your image in one click. befunkyfx (free!) is going to be how you get that nice vintage filter. vsco cam ($0.99) is what i always use for black and white.
use camera+ to do a single click brightening effect. i prefer the "night" effect, even if it's an image that was taken outdoors. it may seem a little bright when you do it, but the next step will help balance everything out.
open up befunkyfx and apply the "vintage 1" filter. i usually set it at about 50%, sometimes a little under. play around and obviously do it at whatever percentage you feel is best.
and voila! that's it. save it to your camera roll and you're done. now some of you may understand why i feel so silly giving a tutorial on this! it really is just a super easy 2-step process. :)
now, if you'd like to make it black and white just swap out befunkyfx with vsco cam in the second step and choose one of their black and white settings. the end result will look something like this:
if you want to see other images that i've used this on, feel free to browse my instagram. it's what i've been using for the past month or two. have a great monday!
