How I Edit My Instagram Photos (White, Dreamy Theme)

How I edit my Instagram photos for a white and dreamy feel

Last year, I made a video showing you how I edit my Instagram photos to give them a white and washed out dreamy feel.  My methods have changed since then and I only use one single app to make all of my edits now.  Since a lot of you still ask me all the time how I create a consistent theme, I thought it was about time that I put together an updated video showing you how I achieve that in my editing techniques.

To start, I always share photos that already have a light coloured or white background. This helps immensely as it would be pretty tough to keep the theme going with a darker styled photo.  Photos with light backgrounds (like a light blue sky) can easily be transformed to look white or at the very least light grey.

  1. I had always thought people used photography “light boxes” to take beautiful bright white photos. Good to know that you can achieve this with an app!

  2. Loving your instagram theme! I have tried so many times to have a consistent theme but i find it extremely hard to make sure that every picture i take or want to take fits in with my theme! great video though 🙂

  3. I love this tutorial. This is how I use it on my Instagram feed. However, I like this app because it gives you more options. So I can’t wait to try it. Thanks for sharing.
