Instagram presets are in high demand these days. Apps like VSCO and Snapseed are handy to quickly put a nice filter on your picture. But if you really want to up your game, you quickly find out Adobe Lightroom is the way to go. And then the struggle starts: how to work this program? Of course the ‘simple’ features are clear, but what is a curve? And how do you get that fabulous IG-look? Let us tell you how we edit our pictures, both on the mobile phone (free!) app of Lightroom and the desktop version of Adobe Lightroom. Here is our Instagram preset Lightroom tutorial!

This dogsitting picture is edited with ‘just’ the free mobile app of Lightroom! In the tutorial, I walk you through all of the steps.

As I started out working with Lightroom, I had no idea of half of all the functions. So after two years of random clicking and editing I finally decided to watch some Youtube-tutorials. My mind was blown and my pictures started looking way better! I’m still learning, but I love to share my current techniques with you. This editing is for everyone and you can make your own presets! One important thing to keep in mind, I will walk you through the steps, but eventually you have to play around and find your own style! Without further ado, let me show you what this tutorial will teach you.
