I am a legal drama enthusiast (I think being a lawyer was a missed profession in life) and occasionally things come my way that gives me a chance to help someone, for nothing or to give it a professional and Latin term, "pro bono". A few months ago I was approached by someone about writing their LinkedIn profile to help them look for a job after being made redundant.
I'll be honest, I should have had professional photos taken back when I incorporated my business, but well, budgets were tight - being a service lead business, I didn't need a lot of financial investment, so my cash pool was pretty dry. 12 months in as my business was starting to boom, I began to be asked for my "headshot", and all I had was a (really nice) holiday photo, that didn't exactly scream "professional"!
The second best-kept secret to better Instagram posts is edit, edit, edit! (Number one is to learn how to take a better photo).
I have pretty much every editing app on my iPhone, and I dread to think as to how much I have spent over the years on apps in an attempt to improve my 'gram or achieve a particular aesthetic.
In this post, I am going to share my current "go-to" apps to improve your Instagram images and use one photo as an example as to how I have improved it using three of the apps.
