There are tons of third party apps that you can edit your phone images in before you upload them to Instagram. But, believe it or not, my favorite way to edit for Instagram is right in the Instagram App! In fact, I wish I could edit my other iPhone images using their sliders! 

Here is what I do to almost every iPhone image that I upload to Instagram:

  • Bump up the brightness 
  • Bring up the shadows
  • Bring down the highlights
  • Add contrast
  • Add sharpening

That's it! 

Here's a quick video to see it in action!
