1. Introduction: Hi, my name is an amateur photographer. In this course, I'm going to teach you how to create amazing and creative Instagram posts that just your mobile phone. So without wasting any time, let's get started. 2. Before we get started: Before we get started, I need you guys to download these apps. We're going to use them throughout this course. All these apps are free and are available on both the Play Store and the Apple Store. 3. How to create Seamless Instagram Carousel: In this video, I'm going to show you how to make seamless Instagram curves when using Adobe Spark Post. First, open the app and click on this blue plus icon. Then select Solid Color. Not choose any color you want in your background. I'm going to choose white. And then click Next. Now, we need to choose our canvas size. And for that, we first have to decide how many swipes we want in our post. That if we want three or four or five, it's up to you. Let's say we want to make a post with three swipes. So I'm going to click on Custom. Now we need to choose the width and height of our canvas. The width will always be a multiple of 1080. For example, if we want to create a post with two swipes, then it will be two times 1080. But we are creating a post with three slaves, then it will be three times 70, which is three to 400. And the height will always be 1350 for Instagram post. Now we have created our canvas. Let's start making our color. First. I'm going to clear our Canvas by deleting the tics and removing the logo. Now I'm going to add some images in our Canvas. Click on this AG and select images. Choose the images you want in your college. Once you have selected your images, click on the advert and now you have two options, either to manually arrange the images on the canvas or select a random layout for your collage. For now, I'm going to choose collage option, and it will automatically creates a collage for me. Now, we can adjust our colors by clicking on the layout option. Here we have different layouts for our colleges. Select the one you like. You can adjust the borders and the size of the images. And you can also change the order of the images by dragging it from its place to the place you want. Once you're satisfied with your layout, then click on this button and save it in your device. Now we need to cut this coolers in three columns to make this seamless catalysis. And for that, I'm going to use an app called Panorama crop. Once you have opened the app, select the new swipeable post option, and select the Cola's that we have created. Now you can see these numbers at the bottom. Selected number of swipes you want in a post. So we want three swipes in our post. So I'm going to select three. Now I'm going to click on this option. Here. We need to select the aspect ratio of our post. So I'm going to drag it all the way to the right. This is the first of five aspect ratio that we used for Instagram posts. Just zoom argue post once to make it fit on the screen. And there you go. Click on the tonight. Who's going to look on Instagram? There is another way to create this collage manual. It takes more time, but it will give you a lot of freedom to adjust your images. How ever you want, like this one. And this correlates, I have adjusted the images the way I want without using any layout. It's up to you whether you want to adjust your images manually or let the app chooser layout for you. 4. How to use Lens Distortions App: This video, I'm going to teach you how to add different elements like sunlight and snowfall and lens flare in your photos using an amazing app called lens distortion. So let's get started. Let's first learn how to add fake snowfall in your photos. So first, open the app, board, the image you want to edit. Now, it has so many options to add. You can add fake sunlight, you can add snowfall, you can add fog, you can add shimmer, you can luminary. You can add three. Again. We need to add snowfall. So let's go. Here we have two options, classic snowfall and snow. So choose the one you like. I'm going to choose this one. This one. Yeah. Once you have selected your filter, that back on that again, and it will open the adjustment panel. From here, you can adjust the brightness, contrast, opacity, saturation, color, etc, of your filter. Was, I'm going to adjust the brightness of the filter. Then I'm going to use the erase mask dual subject. Now you can add more features on your image. If you want, just tap on the plus icon and let's add some more snow. This one is again dab on the filter, adjusted J. And that's it. Once you satisfied with your edits, save the image. And let's take another example. I'm going to add fake sunlight. So light volume, I choose the type of sunlight you want to add. I'm going to select this one. Now. Click on the Filter. Again. Adjust your light source using your fingers. Yeah, I think it's fine. I'm going to change the color of light. Going to decrease the saturation and just increase the brightness. That's it. Before and after. It's easy, isn't it? Now, next, axial fixed sunlight in this image. Select the folder you like. I'm going to select this one. Now, adjust the sunlight. Yeah, this looks perfect. But it's too saturated. I'm going to bring down the saturation is fine. Let's also add a lens flare in this file. Before and after. Amazing. Let's save it. 5. Creating Double exposure Images using Snapseed: In this video, I'm going to teach you how to create double exposure images like this and this. And also, I'm going to teach you how to add fixed us an image using Snapseed. So let's get started. We're going to use the double exposure feature of Snapseed to create these images. There are the ways to win double exposure images like Pixar or Photoshop. But I think this is the easiest way to make double exposure quizzes. And also it's very fast. Let's see how to add music player in your image. It's very easy. Opens body file or any music player app that has background. Then do the song you want to add a photo, take a screenshot of that. Then import that image in Snapseed, this image. And just bring the shadow all the way to whiteness a 100 to make it totally dark. Then save it. Now in both the image in which you want to add the MRC layer and click on double exposure. At the musically we just edited, scale it down, release it very worn, and just change the blending mode to light it. And adjust it to make sure it looks totally blended into your image. And that's it. Now let's see how to add stars and comment in the image. First downloaded image of the star that has black background. Diet, it will blend perfectly. We do image. Now. Open the image in which you want to add the stars and select double exposure. Not important, the image. Scale it down, place it where you want, and just seeing the blending mode to lighten. And there you go. You can also add more stars if you want. By using the same technique, just import the image with black background and change the blending mode to lighten it simple is entered.
