HOW I EDIT MY INSTAGRAM PICTURES

Hey there guys! Today I’m back with another blog post about blogging, this is starting to be a bit inception-esque, but anyways, I’ve noticed that those posts have been really popular with you so I thought that today I’d share my tips on editing your Instagram pictures for a cohesive aesthetic/look and feel.

¡Hola! Hoy estoy de vuelta con otro post sobre cosas de bloggers, he notado que esos posts son bastante populares, así que hoy pensé en compartirles mis tips para editar fotos de Instagram para un look cohesivo.

1. FIND YOUR COLOR PALETTE & STICK TO IT

This will help you create a theme, find out what you color palette is with this awesome site called ColorKuler, I apparently don’t like color on mine lol. But seriously I pick my pictures so they’re mostly black, white, gray scale, blues. No matter how cool I think a picture is, if it doesn’t go with my theme, I won’t post it.

El tener una misma paleta de color te ayuda a crear un tema, para encontrar cuál es la tendencia de color en tu cuenta usa éste increíble sitio llamado ColorKuler, aparentemente a mi no me gustan los colores. Pero ya en serio, yo intento apegarme a fotos que tienen blanco, negro, una escala de grises, azules. Sin importar qué tan cool crea que es una foto, si no va con mi tema, no la comparto.

2. THINK IN ADVANCE

Always think of how the picture you’re uploading next will look besides the previous one and the following one.

Siempre piensa cómo se verá la foto que sigas junto a la anterior y la siguiente.

2. EDIT AWAY

Before I edit with Instagram I always use this app called Snapseed, which is really awesome and I know a lot of bloggers and instagrammers use, now to achieve that cohesive look, besides picking similar colored and themed pictures, I stick to modifying the same values, I always try to give it a negative contrast value and add brightness to my pictures, I also try to go low on the saturation, but it’s all really up to you and your aesthetic preferences. I like that Snapseed lets you not only modify these values but also has a lot of other editing tools that help you achieve pretty cool results, I suggest you experiment with those to see what you like and what you don’t.

Antes de editar mis fotos con Instagram siempre uso ésta aplicación llamada Snapseed, está padrísima, sé que muchos bloggers e instagrammers la usan, para lograr ese look cohesivo, necesitas no sólo elegir con cuidado las imágenes en una misma paleta de color, sino también siempre intentar modificar los mismos valores al editar, yo siempre intento reducir el contraste, añadir brillo y bajar la saturación de color en mis fotos, pero todo depende de ti y tus preferencias estéticas. Lo que me gusta de Snapseed es que no sólo sirve para modificar éstos valores básicos, también te permite usar otras herramientas de edición para obtener resultados muy padres, te sugiero experimentes con ellas para ver qué te gusta y qué no.

Once I’m done with Snapseed I save the picture to my phone and then pull it up on Instagram, where I also use the editor but not as much, cause I already edited the values on Snapseed, and that’s pretty much it. Once you get the idea of what’s the aesthetic you’re going for and you get the hang of it it’ll get easier to get the same look and feel on all your pictures. Not as complicated as you’d think. How about you? What are your tips and tricks? Do share!!

Ya que terminé con Snapseed guardo la imagen en mi teléfono y luego la abro desde Instagram, ahí también uso el editor un poco(no los filtros predeterminados), porque ya la edite previamente, y eso es básicamente todo. Ya que tengas una idea de cuál es la estética que buscas y le agarres la onda, te será muy sencillo tener el mismo efecto en todas tus fotos. No es tan complicado. ¿Cuáles son tus trucos?

  1. I LOVE this post Daniela! I love how you listen to your followers and actually write about what they (me) would love to read! I’ll definately try your tips, as I’m trying to make my instagramfeed (coppersnoemi) more matching. I started using VSCO because I didn’t exactly know how to work with Snapseed. Thereby, you can see your instafeed in advance using VSCO to see if your pictures match or not. I’d first like to try some themes and see how they look and fit me, before posting all my pictures on instagram. Working on it… Thanks anyway for this post! A big thanks
