Advanced Editing Tools on Instagram

After a wonderful family visit and lots of photo opportunities with my granddaughters, I'm back to blogging. A lot has happened this past week on the mobile photography front. One of the first things I wanted to review were the new Instagram advanced editing tools. This could be one of the best updates to Instagram ever because now you may not have to use another app to get your photos just right! There are ten new editing tools. You also now have the ability to adjust the strength of the Instagram filters - just double-tap to adjust.

Here's a step-by-step progression of an image edited entirely with Instagram.

  1. Good demo, thanks Geri. What screen size are you editing on? I ask because sharpness judgements are related to image.

  2. Thanks Peter - I am editing on my iPad. Does it look overly sharpened to you?

  3. It looks fine on my iPad. I'm just thinking about those times when we want to exhibit at large print sizes, which is why I always keep a copy of the edited image immediately before sharpening, which is the last stage in my workflow. That way I can "dilute to taste" for any specific display or print size at any time.

  4. That's a great idea - I also think using an app like Actual Pixels would probably help as well.
