I'm a teenager. I am also a photographer! So, obviously, pictures play a big role in my life. I edit all of my professional images on my computer. But, I am surely not going to do that for every iPhone photo I want to post on Instagram. Don’t get me wrong -- I LOVE Instagram. It's my favorite social media platform. But, if I'm being honest, I am not a fan of Instagram filters for my Insta posts. They are just too heavy and bold, and they do not follow my style.
I was to the point where I would not even put a filter on the images, because the Insta filters didn’t follow my style. So, I decided to search for an app that would allow me to edit with my style on my phone, and I discovered VSCO. It's a photo editing app that allows you to put a film preset (basically a filter that looks like film) on your photos. VSCO really allows you to let your creative juices flow! If you haven’t checked out VSCO, I highly recommend you do. The best part about it… it’s free! They also have their own social media platform within their app, but you can choose to just use it for photo editing!
Here are a few of my pictures I edited using VSCO:
