It’s not a mere coincidence that bloggers happen to have a lot of followers on Instagram. Other than the fact that they’re all so obviously social media-savvy, these ladies take the extra mile to curate their feed and make sure that each and every snap uploaded is double-tap worthy.
When it comes to editing IG photos, we can all learn a thing or two from them. That said, make sure to jot down notes and score tips from your favorite bloggers below!
"I usually use VSCO for filtering, Snapseed for spot tweaking (brightness, saturation, etc.), and Retouch for cloning unwanted things from the background.” - Melissa Gatchalian (@sartorialpanda)
“[I use] BeautyPlus for selfies, VSCO for everything in general! I like the Q series very much, particularly Q8 and Q10.”- Tricia Gosingtian (@tgosingtian)
"When it comes to editing my photos, I stick to Snapseed, and most of the time, I try to lay off the filters. I also usually go for a more vibrant looking set of photos but I occasionally like them to be on the dark side as well. But that all depends on where I am and other things since I like making sure my feed is somehow 'curated' whenever I post.” - Patricia Prieto (@patriciaprieto)
"I like my photos to have good, balanced lighting and to look a bit saturated. I usually process my travel and outfit photos using Snapseed. I adjust the brightness, contrast, and saturation through the Selective tool. If needed, I also adjust the ambiance through Tune Image, and then I edit the sharpness up to 20 percent. After that, I use Twitter's filter Breeze but only about 20 to 50 percent of it. My flatlays are all edited using Photoshop because that is where I can easily adjust the lighting and the color of the background, and I can add some graphics as well. Using the Instagram app, I add sharpness, brightness, and contrast, if necessary.” - Trice Nagusara (@tricenagusara)
“I always edit through VSCO app because it has awesome presets that I can play around with. Amongst their presets, I love the aesthetic series the most because it gives a classic analog film vibe to my photos. As of the moment, my favorites are A4 or A6 to filter my photos.” - Rhea Bue (@iamthedoll)
"I'm all for colors when it comes to my feed. I mainly use Snapseed and sometimes I use VSCO. My favorite filters would be C7 or S3.” - Lissa Kahayon (@lissakahayon)
"I mainly use two apps to edit my Instagram photos. First, I adjust the brightness and structure using Snapseed then add filters using VSCO. I only choose from five filters depending on the photo, which are 04, A6, J2, HB2, and SE3. For polaroid effects, I use Afterlight. I prefer posting photos with the colors of nature.” - Kat Valdez (@kattvaldez)
"I use Snapseed and VSCO. Usually, for VSCO, I use the A5 filter." - Camille Co (@itscamilleco)
