Let’s teach you how to polish your images on my favorite phone editing app. See the video below.
I recommend the app Snapspeed, it’s free and available on both Apple and Android.
Download Snapspeed from the Google or Apple
Snapseed Portrait Editing Video
1) Once your image is open in Snapspeed, click tools in the bottom right or filters and start tweaking.
2) Crop the image first…for Insta square or 5/4. Try and crop out anything that detracts from the story. Click the checkmark.
3) Next click on Tools then Details.
Slide up and down to see options in this menu. Slide right or left to increase or decrease the amount.
Sharpening – I turn up sharpening rather high and see how it affects the image.
Structure – This really makes your landscapes pop (not good for skin – make it look rough)
4) Tool then Tune Image
Adjust brightness, contrast, saturation, ambience, highlights, shadows and warmth. I typically mess with all of these.
This allows you to edit a section of the photo at a time. Click the plus to set the size of your adjustment area. Then slide up and down for options.
6) Play around and have fun. When you are satisfied click done and it saves a new version of this photo.
