If you love pictures and photography, being on Instagram is an absolute must. It is probably the most common places to find amazing photography and good image feed. The difference when looked at with any other platform on social media is that you have everything driven from an image quality front on Instagram. This is why filters have the most value on a platform like this. You tend to see a plethora of ‘similar’ images with variations on filter specs and frankly, it is quite a hindrance to anyone on your feed.
So, how to choose filtering photos off Instagram feed? Is it possible to use multiple filters and then choose which one goes live? Yes, all of this is possible.
Here is a probably the best trick to upload only the perfect photo on Instagram.
While you can take an instant photo, edit it and put it up on Instagram, most of the times we use a filter on an existing or older photo before it goes live on our page. In either case, to use multiple filters – you have to switch your phone to ‘Airplane mode’.
Once this is done, open your Instagram page and click on the bottom left-hand side option to go to the recent pictures taken.
Then, locate the image you want to upload.
You will get a whole list of filter choices at the bottom – Mayfair, Amaro, Rise, Valencia, etc. Try out any filter and see the outcome – you can save this image to work on it later.
Once saved, you can open this too on your photo stream and add another filter to it and so on. The app would save an image of each completed filter and thus you would get a version each time saved. If you are using an iPhone, this is the easiest tip for using multiple filters on the same Instagram photo.
Now that you have got the perfect photo, you have to ensure that all three or four variants are not live on your page. So, before you switch off ‘Airplane mode’; go to the Instagram application and delete the images that you do not want to go live. Yes, the image would still be in your device memory and can be deleted later. After finalizing on the edited picture, switch your phone back to normal mode and upload. It is as simple as that!
This simple trick would help you get a lot more interaction on your Instagram account. Mainly because the filtered images would stand out like no other! Thus, you can apply multiple filters on same Instagram photo to get the desired result. Not everyone on the social media major uses this technique to apply different filters on a single photo. So, while your photo does look unique and definitely different – it is all done with a simple amount of detailing. The next time you decide to put a picture on your account, make it a little more unique with multiple filters.
