Android phone comes with Instagram already set at advanced settings, which you don’t really need, so you should really turn those off. You can do this by going to menu and then profile and that’s where you can change the advanced settings to standard.
Your phone in conjunction with Instagram already has some great ways to take wonderful pictures without too much trouble. And if you want to change the settings back to advanced at any time you certainly can but if you are new to Instagram then you need to start with the standard settings. Below are some other ways that you can get the most out of your Android phone to take stunning photos for Instagram.
Using Instagram’s Features
Once you have taken your pictures you need to make sure they are ready to go onto Instagram by editing them. First, choose only the best photos, blurry or out of focus photos should ever be used even if you think the picture looks artsy. That’s a great way to waste an upload particularly when there are so many great editorial features already on Instagram. You can use filters to create light effects or make the entire photo have a sepia tone like you’d find on old time photographs. You can even add a border to frame the subject of the picture more.
There are many exposure settings already on Instagram and you can use them to take your pictures. Contrast is a very important setting because it separates the light and dark features of the photos. A higher contrast means more depth between the dark and the light areas of the picture. The actual exposure compensation adds more or less light to the photo and is good for making nighttime photos appear brighter without adding unwanted flash. The ISO feature is how long the shutter remains open and can be great for action photos when at the higher settings. Finally, you can play around with the white option to change the actual colors in the picture.
Adding a Personal Touch
You really want to add hashtags when you post your photos but whatever you do, don’t use too many or it will look too busy. You don’t really need more than three hashtags when posting a photo, perhaps your company name, what your product is and maybe one more. You want to be personable and you can’t do that by shoving your brand or your product down your followers’ throat with too many hashtags. Just be genuine and your followers will get your message and you can be assured of more likes on your photos.
The more you play with Instagram the easier and the better your photos will look which will get you the Instagram followers and likes that you need to promote yourself or your business on social media.
If you want to upload stunning photographs from Android phones to Instagram then you need to play around with the settings. You don’t need to have your Instagram on advanced settings, instead use your cameras default settings to get the shots that will get you the likes you need on your pictures. When you get it down to a science, then go ahead and change the settings back to advanced settings if you want to. The more you play with Instagram the easier and the better your photos will look which will get you the Instagram followers and likes that you need to promote yourself or your business on social media.
