Behind the Bookstagram #2: How I Edit My Pictures

Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!

In the second instalment in my “Behind the Bookstagram” mini-series, I will be showing you how I edit my bookstagram pictures! I don’t do much to them, but what I do changes how they look quite a bit! If you missed the first instalment in this series (where I show you what types of pictures I take), click here.

The first thing I do after taking my pictures is change the angle of the picture via the photos app scale. My Instagram thrives off of clean lines and even pictures, therefore I try to keep the photo as straight as possible. This step usually takes me quite a bit of time, as I am only changing the angle of the picture slightly.


After I do that, I will upload the picture onto VSCO. VSCO is a photo editing app, in which you can change the dimensions of a photo and add filters, while also being able to adjust the brightness and other settings. Currently, every picture that I post uses the HB1 filter. After I apply the filter, I occasionally play around with the strongness of the filter, or brightness and shadows.

That is how I edit my bookstagram photos! Don’t forget to follow my Instagram (@ReadingReadingReading)!

Good Night Book Owls!
