There’s no secret that I edit my pictures on social media, and honestly there’s no secret that everyone else does it too! I mean let’s be real here, editing your pictures doesn’t mean that you’re changing the size of your nose or making your butt look bigger……. (However, if that’s what YOU want to do, do you boo! To each her own)…… But as for me, I’m just changing the lighting of my background, maybe removing a light switch, smoothing out a random pimple, and just trying to make my IG feed look aesthetically pleasing.
All of the content creators, bloggers, fashionistas, foodies, or whatever someone would like to be known for… edits their pictures. And we all can appreciate that in some way. So I decided to put together a list of my top 4 favorite apps that I use for editing pictures!
First up, Photoshop Fix! — This is step one in my editing process. I use this app to smooth out any unwanted bumps/pimples or wrinkles. After using the smoothing option, I use healing. That’s how I’m able to remove a light switch, a cord, or anything else that I don’t want to be seen in my pictures.
Step 2: VSCO — This is probably my favorite app out of all the apps that I use. This is how I create my “vibe”, my aesthetic….. this is my “preset” app. And I only put preset in quotations because although I use a specific preset, I still change some of the settings to really make it my own.
Step 3: Facetune — I only use this app for one purpose…. to whiten the background of my pictures. (I’m pretty sure I can do that with the first two apps, but I just prefer this one). Lol
And for my final step: I use UNUM — UNUM is a planning app that allows you to see your IG feed in a grid format. This way you’re able to plan when/where/how you want to upload your posts.
I’ve found that all of these apps have been very helpful in creating the kind of content that I enjoy sharing. And I hope that you can find them to be helpful as well. Happy Editing!
