To stand out on Instagram, you need more than just a great camera on the Galaxy S20. You need to think like a professional photographer, which means two things: using manual mode and editing your photos. Only with the latter is what you imagine to be true.
The difference between great photos and amazing images is editing. Take the time to fix colors, adjust lighting, modify shadows, and be the difference of thousands of likes. The problem is most of us, don’t major in photography. But thanks to a leader in this industry, Adobe, you don’t have to do it.
1. Install Adobe Lightroom Mobile
Adobe Lightroom is a login application for fast photo editing on a PC, and now mobile users can enjoy the same software. You can install Adobe Lightroom Mobile from Play Store or Galaxy Store. Although the latter says it’s “for Samsung,” there are no real differences between the two applications.
2. Upload a Photo
Now, take photos in “Pro mode” in the camera application and save photos in RAW. Open Lightroom Mobile and enter or create an account. At the top of the page, select the plus button to upload photos. Select the image labeled “RAW” in the upper right corner to upload.
3. Edit Your Photos in Seconds
At the top of the page (in the same area as the “Add photo” button) will be a new section called “Recently added” with the photo you just uploaded. Select your picture to open it in the editor.
At the bottom of the page is a toolbar with all the different options for editing photos. Here, select “Automatic.” Lightroom Mobile will edit images for you, saving your time and knowledge. Depending on the quality of the photo, the changes can be day and night.
4. Continue to play around
You can pat your back and call it a day here. However, to take your photos further, help yourself and make your own adjustments. Use “Auto” as a base and move the slider to get the look you want exactly.
There are five customization categories for free users: Light, Color, Effect, Detail, and Optics. Select each category to find a slider array where you can make real time changes to your photos. This might be amazing, but once you get used to it, you will take your photos to the next level.
