4 Easy Instagram Edits That Will Change Everything • Little Gold Pixel

Do you ever look at your photos in Instagram and wish they were better?

I love all the photo editing apps on my phone, oh yes I do, because there are so many cool things you can do in each and every one.

BUT … what if I told you that you could make your photos look pro in 4 steps … without stepping a foot outside Instagram?

These are very simple but very powerful edits. The kind we use in magazines to make photos stand out stronger than before.

Ready?

4 Easy Instagram Edits

First, bring in your photo. You’ll notice it’s probably a little on the dark side, maybe yellow if your lighting conditions weren’t great. Perhaps you live in a light dungeon (raises hand).

  1. Brightness
    Bring it up as bright as you want it, without blowing it out. For this example, I went up to 60.
  2. Structure
    Go up to around 15-20. You want to see some of the details start popping.
  3. Sharpen
    Anywhere up to 20. Never more.
  4. Lux (it’s that sunshine-looking symbol in the middle directly underneath the photo above)
    Just a little nudge, up to 10.
