I’m back! I took an unplanned hiatus after school started, due to family issues, appointments, rest and the obvious… school. It actually isn’t as bad as I thought it would be, and I find myself almost… enjoying it? I’m sure if you quoted me a week from now I’d deny I ever said that, but for now, it’s nice. But, you’ve all been missed desperately, and I’m so happy to be getting back to regular posting. Since I’ve been Instagramming like a mad woman, here’s a little something to tide you over until the next outfit post- my favourite photo editing apps.
A Beautiful Mess: The best for quirky captions, doodles and filters. It really makes your photos stand out, and you can personalise them a little bit more. Not for everyone’s tastes (a little cutesy) but one of my favourites. $0.99 in the App Store.
VSCOcam: Beautiful, old-school filters and the best black-and-whites. The filters add a more “I’m-a-serious-photographer” effect to your photos. You can also tweak things like lighting, colours and exposure, plus it’s free. Free in the App Store.
Dubble: Dubble is a recent discovery and the latest addiction. Upload your photos- of anything you like, really- and watch them be fused with someone else’s using double exposure. Basically, your photo is randomly combined with somebody else’s, and the result can range from beautiful to downright hilarious. I like that you don’t know what to expect, and you can get some really gorgeous results. Free in the App Store.
Afterlight: My go-to for general editing and tweaking. Loads of different filters that you can fade/adjust to your liking, plus light leaks, borders, cropping, fun shapes and basic editing. I would say almost every single one of my photos is edited with Afterlight in some way. I’d definitely recommend it as a starting point. $0.99 in the App Store.
Layer, use multiple apps and have fun with it! I hope these tips help spice up your Instagram a little bit. Something about these little square snaps make me so happy, and editing them is one of my favourite past times. Speaking of Instagram, thank you for the amazing response to my latest photo. You’re all beautiful souls. xo
