Hi everyone! I am so excited to share with you my process on how I edit photos using Lightroom both for my blog and social media accounts, specifically Instagram. Curating your feed is one of the things you can do to your IG account to build your brand and attract more followers and eventually generate engagement.
So how do you create your own preset using Lightroom? Read more below and I got something for you at the bottom of the page.
I use iPhone XR and A6000 mostly for my blog and Instagram Photos as well as for producing video content. It’s a mid-range mirrorless camera in terms of price and one of the best mirrorless out there for its price range.
Sure, having a DSLR or mirrorless cam can level up the quality of your photo. But here’s the thing, no matter how high-end your camera is, it still boils down to how the photo is taken; what angle, lighting and etc. So having the right gadget is, of course, a big plus but achieving that outstanding photo and video doesn’t only rely on it.

I have one on my desktop for my blog and on my phone and I use one preset now to make my brand more consistent. What I love about LR is that you can make a preset on your computer and then transfer/sync it to your mobile device which makes it so easy to use and helps with consistency on your blog and IG feed.
Switching from VSCO to LR is one of the best decisions I did because everything is convenient and I can still make adjustments and achieve the color and feel that I am aiming for.
1. I made my own using the desktop version then exported it as a DNG file
2. Save it to your Dropbox (Desktop)
3. Open the Dropbox app on your phone
4. Export it to LR mobile
VOILA! You have your edited photo in just 4 easy steps.
