Currently listening to Anne Marie – Alarm.
If there is one question I get asked the most as regards blogging it has to be the ‘how do you edit your pictures?‘ question. I’ve written a post before on how I do that here but as you might already know people are sometimes too reluctant to read and would rather just ask me over a direct message. I really try to reply all questions and comments but it gets really tiring answering the same questions all over again after even taking out time to write a detailed description here. Anyway I’ve decided to share this post again to refresh the memory of the awesome people that read the previous one and to enlighten the new readers that missed it.I used to use a lot of apps as when I started blogging last year the face of my phone camera which I use to take my flatlays was broken so I did a lot of editing to fix the photo quality but since I replaced my phone (I got another iPhone 5s instead of upgrading because I think iPhone 6 camera sucks) I barely need a lot of editing anymore so here are the apps I use now :
VSCO CAM : I use this app to add filters to my photos and sharpen it. I like vsco filters because the look really natural after being applied especially how you can play with the intensity of the filters. Also when I comes to sharpening photos, this is one app I trust to make my photos sharper without making it grainy or making it look overly edited.
FACETUNE : This is the wonder app. I’m currently on the ‘white themed’ Instagram feed wagon and this app has been helpful in making the background in my photos whiter and more white. I play around with other options in this app like the ‘details’ option to make certain details in my photo pop and so on.
Here is how the process goes :
* First I take an almost perfect flatlay (If it’s not perfect keep snapping away).
The key to having a good photo isn’t really in the editing but in taking the actual image that is going to be edited, so on this note look forward to my tips on taking the perfect flatlay soon on this space. You can also refer to my previous How I Edit My Photos post as that contains details on useful apps you just might be needing.
PS : I’m not answering anymore questions on how I edit my photos after today, y’all ask me new questions.
Till next time… xoxo.
