How I edit my photos│UPDATED

How I edit my photos│UPDATED

Yup! I’ve decided to do an updated version of an old post today! I’ve had a few comments on my new editing ‘style’ and thought why not make a not talk about it! This may or may not be an interesting post for some but I still wanted to make it for the people that were wondering!

1. Export my photos to my phone!

Pretty self-explanatory but I just export photos from my camera, to my computer, to my phone.

2. Open the Snapseed (only sometimes) + VSCO app

I’ve created a ‘filter template’ which to be honest works for most photos. I obviously don’t leave them like that as each photo is different (some need more contrast, others less colour, etc..).

But here is the general template!


As I said in my last post, I’m not sure if this would be considered retro but I’m calling it that because it feels old, well, worn out.

3. Sometimes add a bit of extra grain

I, then, open the Afterlight app (pretty sure you can find it in every app store).

After finding my photo, I go to the film icon (film as in camera film, not a video) and select dust. Here you can find many different types of ‘dust’. I usually go for number 5, 6, 9 or 10. It gives a really cool effect as it looks like the photo was developed with a film.

And voilà!

I hope you enjoyed this post and for the people that were wondering, here you go! All my secrets revealed!😉

This isn’t the longest post either I have to admit but I’ve been really busy with life (yes, I know you’re wondering, I do actually have a social life!)

XOXO, Rosie

    Your photos look so gorgeous!! I have a problem with taking photos, in that i basicslly can’t, buy VSCO is a life saving app and I love all the filter ‘recipes’ you can find on pinterest! I’m hoping to get my instagram theme looking brighter and better come summer, so VSCO will be helpful!💜

    Your photos are wonderful. I personally use the MIX app, which is very similar to VSCO.

    Wonderful post! It’s always cool to see how people edit their pictures. I personally love using both VSCO and snapseed, it’s so cool that they’re free but also super helpful and versatile. xox

    Very nice.. I love using the saturation and fade a lot. I only use vsco. when I upload in instagram mostly, I just edit from their tools. This is pretty useful tho as I like the retro look of photos.
