VLOG- Step by Step Tutorial: How I Edit my Phone Photos

I love my phone and snapping photos with it!
It only takes a few steps with my favorite photo editing apps to tweak
them and make them photos I want to print, frame and enjoy!


I’ve shared my favorite photo apps before, But I thought
it would be helpful if I did a step by step video tutorial on how I
like to use each app to edit my photos!
Favorite Apps- Snapseed and Afterlight.
If I want to add text- A Beautiful Mess.
If I want to make a grouping of photos- PicFrame
I have a dslr camera and love it…
but sometimes, with life so busy, it’s easier to snap some
shots with my phone for blog posts and then edit them on my phone.
With some simple edits they look great!
Sometimes the photos don’t need much editing…
while others need a few more steps to make them just right.
Try out the apps and mess around with the different
options to find your favorite edits!
My video tutorial below, will share a few of my favorite
features in Snapseed and Afterlight!

Hope these tips are helpful for you. If you don’t have time to
watch the video now.. PIN IT and watch it later! :)
You’ll be happy to have these tricks on hand to make your
phone photos bright, crisp and pretty!

    Thanks for the post! I just recently started my own blog whatsgreatwithkate.blogspot.com and really want to make my pictures look nicer since I cannot afford a fancy camera yet. I just downloaded these apps and i’m excited to start using them to edit my iphone pics! I am hoping to someday be as big as you in blog world! If you ever have any free time (doubtful with your 3 adorable kids), take a look and let me know what you think. I would really appreciate it.

    You rock! Love your posts.

    Natalie, thank you so much for taking time to do this vlog! It wasn’t in our budget to do professional pictures this year. You just helped my Christmas card pictures go from OK to looking like they were done professionally!! Thank you again!

    This design is incredible! You obviously know how to
    keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start
    my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than
    that, how you presented it. Too cool!
