How to edit photos in Lightroom for Instagram?

Why should I edit photos in Lightroom?

When most people were starting out on Instagram it was mostly an app for sharing personal photos with your friends. But today Instagram is a platform where a countless number of brands, influencers and bloggers make millions of dollars every month. The quality of photos we’ve come to expect on Instagram is very high and if you want your blog or business to succeed on Instagram, you need to make sure that the photos you’re posting look gorgeous. Lightroom is one of the best tools for editing your photos and making them look professional. It’s full of useful features and very user-friendly, and if you’re a complete beginner, you can use Lightroom presets to edit your photos quickly.

What are Lightroom presets?

Lightroom presets are essentially filters that allow you to quickly and easily make any photo look beautiful even if you are new to this program. The only difference between filters and presets is that you can adjust almost all the parameters in presets, essentially customizing the preset for yourself if you want. Plus, Lightroom presets come in packs, so you don’t need to choose the same preset for all the photos, but you can use different presets from the same pack and still get a beautifully cohesive profile.

How to edit Instagram photos with Lightroom presets?

Before you go ahead and buy Lightroom presets, you need to decide on the format that you will use when shooting your photos. If you’re shooting your photos on a smartphone, they will be saved in a JPEG format, so you need to choose presets that have been designed specifically for this file type. If you’re shooting photos using a DSLR camera, they will usually be saved in a RAW file format. This format preserves a lot more information about the photo, which is why photographers prefer it to JPEG, but if you want, you can set up your camera to use the JPEG format. Again, if you’re using the RAW format, you need to find presets designed for RAW files.

Next, decide whether you will be editing your photos on a smartphone or on your computer. If you’re using a smartphone, the Lightroom app is free to download and use, but you can only edit JPEG photos. If you’re using a desktop version, you have to pay about 10 dollars a month for the subscription but you will be able to edit RAW photos.

Once you’ve downloaded the Lightroom CC mobile app to your phone, go and head find and download a preset. It will usually be in a form or an image, the image might look weird, but it’s totally normal! To download the preset, you first need to download it to your computer, unpack the zip folder and send the preset itself to your phone using email, airdrop or other methods. After that install the preset in Lightroom by opening the app, tapping the Add New Photo button to open your camera roll and choosing the preset photo. Then, tap the three-dot icon on the screen and choose Copy Image Settings. Then open the All Photos folder and find your image that you want to apply the preset to. Tap the three-dot icon and press Paste Image Settings. Done! You can further adjust different settings on the photo if you want to leave it as is.
