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.

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.

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.
