How I Edit My Blog Photos

by - Saturday, March 16, 2019

Everyone has a different process for editing their blog photos. They have different equipment and different styles, and mine is definitely going to be different from your favorite blogger.

I take all my blog photos on a phone (for now it's the iPhone XS), and I only use two apps to edit my photos: Snapseed and VSCO.

Snapseed: 
After snapping my photo, I open it on Snapseed first. I used to open it in VSCO first, but realized that it would be easier to use Snapseed first since I can basically brighten and edit it first, and then I could slap my filter over. In Snapseed, I mainly use the brighten, warmth, and rotating tools, but occasionally I use the "heal blemish" tool to get rid of anything unsightly. I usually turn down the warmth because my photos can turn out rather warm-toned especially on sunny days, and the brighten tool is quite handy if it's cloudy or raining outside and there's little natural light.

VSCO:
After editing my photo in Snapseed, I'll open it up again in VSCO Cam. I've been using VSCO Cam for a few years and I love it, and I pay for the full membership, which is $20 per year. I like to switch between filters often to see how it affects my photography, which is why I bought the full version, but for my blog and Instagram photos now, I prefer to use A6, but I have used HB2 in the past. I also up the exposure, contrast, and saturation a little (mostly by 1) and I make it cooler a little bit (-0.5), and that's pretty much it.
