Using Lightroom Presets for Editing Beautiful Instagram Photos: Part 1

If you are searching for a way to create impressive Instagram photos for your feed, why not consider editing them with Lightroom?! The latter is an efficient tool for improving the quality and look of an image. Besides, it doesn’t matter whether you are a beginner or already a professional, with the help of this application you can achieve that cohesive Instagram aesthetic you strive for.

Today InstaBF, one of the most popular and trustworthy Instagram and IGTV providers, is going to talk about Lightroom presets and how you can edit photos from both your smartphone and your PC.

 

 

Why Choose Lightroom

 

Instagram is, in fact, a huge platform with thousands of brands, influencers, amateur and professional photographers, all of which are pitching for space in the Instagram feed. And we can’t deny that nearly all photos we see on this social network are of A+ quality. So, if you want to stand out in such a harsh competition, think about claiming your place through strong Instagram imagery. It’s recommended to use Adobe Lightroom for this purpose as it features countless ways of manipulating your images. It will drastically improve the quality of your images, as well as help you develop your own style.

 

 

Lightroom Presets

Lightroom presets are unique photo editing tools that can be applied only with one click. They will drastically speed up your workflow and give that professional look to your images you can see on Instagram. With the help of these filters, you get even more control over every image and can adjust pretty much anything in it, up to changing the hue or saturation of every color. 

 

 

Choosing the Right Format

 

It’s important to take into consideration if you’re going to take photos in JPEG or RAW before purchasing any Lightroom preset. If you are shooting with an iPhone, JPEG images are what it shoots. DSLP cameras, meanwhile, take RAW images. Lightroom has presets designed for RAW and JPEG files separately, and if you use the wrong presets, it can’t guarantee the results you expect. Hence, be very cautious about this.

 

 

Desktop vs Mobile App

The mobile and desktop versions of Lightroom are different. RAW images can be edited only with the desktop version – Adobe Lightroom CC. This is a paid program and to download it, you must sign up for an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription for $10 per month. It’s especially convenient for professional photographers or those Instagrammers, who schedule their feed in advance with a PC scheduling program.

Lightroom CC Mobile, meanwhile, is a free-of-charge application convenient to those who love the convenience of editing on the go. It’s applicable to both Android and iOS devices.
