Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Process photos with the manual tools, part of Learning Instagram.
- [Voiceover] Even though Instagram's filters…can quickly give your photos a different look,…sometimes none of them give you…exactly the look you're going for.…That's when you can turn to the manual adjustment tools…to make additional changes.…Let's start by selecting another photo.…I'll go back to my library.…And let's go with this shot of this street in New York.…I'm gonna frame it up a little bit.…And I'll tap Next.…Alright, so again, we could just start selecting filters,…but I want a little more control over this image.…
Now, one thing you can try right off the bat…is the Lux tool.…It's this sun button here in the middle.…The Lux tool is just this single slider…which allows you to adjust the contrast and saturation…of the photo, and that can help bring out details…that weren't as visible in the image.…Going to the left decreases the contrast,…and going to the right increases the saturation.…Just play around with the slider…until you're happy with the appearance.…And I'll tap the check button to accept this change.…
