I’m back with a newwwwwwwwwwww post! Today I’m going to share with you all my favourite photo editing app!

I personally like my photos to be very ‘indie’ like this: click here.

1. Afterlight 

I initially tried it by downloading my friend’s paid version in my phone, and I bought it only when I grew to be soooooooooooooooooooooooooo addictive/ reliant with the app. You can adjust the clarity, brightness, contrast, saturation, exposure, (least used: highlights, shadows, fade, highlight tone, mid tone, shadow tone, temperature, grain, sharpen), vignette. I actually bought the ‘wander’ filters and no regrets. I probably spend quite a bit on this app but really worth it. Now you know my secret heh.

Favourite filters:

From wander: glen, mesa, rainier, loch, isle. 

From seasons: elm. 

From guest: russ, horine, idaho, nico. 

From original: relic, atlas, hollow, lume. 

2. VSCOcam 

I downloaded this app way before it was even popular. But decided that it was too limited ‘choices’ of filters, so I switch to Afterlight (and besides I didn’t upgrade my iOS so ya lo, cannot update also.) I’m waiting to change my phone so probably would give VSCOcam another try. Heh. But in terms of adjustment wise it’s a bit not as awesome as Afterlight (LOL, afterall it’s paid app what do you think?) and the photo size is limited eh (cannot go for 16:9).

My favourite filters are: F2 P5, T1 (+7), HB1, HB2, LV1, A6.

3. iPhone filters.

I usually take my photos either in Fade or Chrome. Then I import it to either Afterlight or VSCOcam, *voila* then up it goes to Instagram.

My instagram photos are either taken by my iPhone 5C, or Nikon P510 or Panasonic DMC-XS1. I am seriously considering getting a sony RX100iii (but it’s like close to 1K), and my cameras are still working fine omg! I now bring my panasonic out on weekends because I realize it takes really good photo at night even though it’s small (lol at my Nikon *points at it and say shame on you*)

LOL can’t really tell the differences here but it is quite obvious when seen on screen.

So yup, here’s how i edit my instagram photo!
