Do you struggle with editing Instagram photos? In this post I’m showing you how I edit Instagram photos on my phone with the free app by Google called Snapseed. Editing lettering photos for Instagram or Etsy product photos used to be such a headache! But it doesn’t have to be!
Every Instagram account or Etsy shop has their own personality and style. My style is to have bright white backgrounds with my lettering being the pop of color. It’s really pretty, but it’s not easy to get the bright whites while not washing out any of the color. That’s why Snapseed is amazing! It helps you do just that!
It’s best to photograph your art in natural light like next to a window, but you don’t want direct sunlight otherwise it will wash out your colors or make everything yellow. If you don’t have a nice window, in my video below, I will show you the lights that I use. You can download Snapseed here:
Here is the video tutorial to show you exactly how I edit Instagram photos on my phone in Snapseed. I’m showing you with a lettering photo that has a lot of colors. At the end of the video you can see the before and after contrast of watercolor photos and lettering photos.
