Instagram PRO secrets: No need for Photoshop

Instagram went through a major change this year. It got a complete brand makeover that left many people hating the new look. Previously, it had a vintage Polaroid camera inspired logo, and now it has changed to a vivid minimal logo. In my opinion, this change was necessary for its ever-changing prospects in digital imaging. Instagram is not just about creating nostalgic filmcamera-esque images anymore. It’s evolved into a sophisticated photo editing and sharing tool that’s not only simple, but easy to use.



Now, aside from the ever-popular filters, you can also edit your image precisely on your phone like you would in Photoshop or Lightroom. It truly makes the perfect combo for the lazy photographer: instant access to editing tools with the opportunity to showcase work instantly.

I’m going to share with you some pro Instagram editing secrets to help you get the most out of your smartphone camera clicks! No need to upload your images and edit them on Photoshop anymore.

Instagram has the editing tools option right beside the filter option:

DSLR VS Iphone

Smartphone cameras VS Entry level DSLRs

Are smartphones and DSLRs even comparable?

Can this smartphone be better than your DSLR?

Time to time, I get hit by the pro DSLR bug, and that really makes me ignore the potential of what’s already accessible to me. I have a smartphone with a 16 MP camera but can it compare to a DSLR?Smartphones, like I have said before, are being developed with phenomenal camera features. Majority of smart phones now offer more than eight megapixel CMOS sensor, which is amazing since the professional DSLRs from 9 years ago averaged to about 12 MP.

The line between DSLR and smartphones is continuously being blurred due to the ability to shoot RAW and change shutter speeds in some phones. Also, Instagram has contributed to a new breed of photographers, the iPhoneographers. iPhoneographers exclusively shoot with the smartphone, iPhone. This has led to the increase of mobile photography accessories like lenses and lighting systems.
