Why You Should Be Editing With Lightroom for Your Instagram
There’s no denying that the quality of photography we see on Instagram today is incredibile high. The best way to claim your place on the gram these days is by having a strong feed that stands out from the crowd! First step is to create a cohesive feed that looks clean and professional. If you’re looking to find or create a unique style, or theme for your feed, using presets that you like will really help in creating that cohesive Instagram look.
What are Lightroom Presets?
Lightroom presets are one-click photo editing tools that can speed up your workflow and give your Instagram photos a professional look. Lightroom “presets” are like photo filters. The difference between Lightroom filters and other filters from Instagram and other apps is that with Lightroom Presets you have more control over them and you can adjust pretty much every detail in your images, such as exposure, shadows, whites, colors, vibrance, sharpness and more. Lightroom presets can completely change the look of your photos and can give a specific style to your photos with just one click.
Choosing Your Preset – Buy Lightroom Presets
Many Lightroom presets are offered in “packs” or collections, so you can choose from a selection of filters for each of your photos while still maintaining a cohesive look on your Instagram feed. For example: there are lots of Lightroom Presets to choose from in our shop HERE.
Tip: Stay with one preset, and change sometimes the basic settings to get the best results. So when it comes to selecting your presets, try to be consistent with the preset you use for all your Instagram images. If you start swapping and changing presets with different tones or from different creators, you’re going to struggle to get that cohesive look.
