Instagram this month / how I edit my pictures

Sweden / Swedish Adventures
Instagram is by far my favorite app. Most of the time I try to make a conscious effort to not live behind a lens. To live in the moment but sometimes I do get a little snappy. I am not a photographer but I like editing my pictures even though sometimes it will take me an age to select an image and fiddle with it, it is a calming hobby.

How I edit my Instagram pictures

I thought I would share my very uncompliated ‘editing’ skills, I don’t use anything fancy to edit my images – I just don’t see the point. However, I know my photoshop, from A Beautiful Mess, Brushstroke and VSCOcam apps. The latter trumping every other image editing app I’ve ever used.

The F2 filter on my VSCOcam is my go-to when editing images, then with a little bit of cropping resizing, messing with some lighting, sharpening this and that, wa-la!

All of these images are from my recent trips away to Norway and Sweden. Hence my absence, it has been busy around these ends but hopefully things will start to get back on track.


  • These are some beautiful pictures! I LOVE Drottningholm 🙂

    • I loved Drottningholm too! I’ve been there a couple of times on different occasions. It’s such a beautiful to visit and explore. Have you been there?

      • I have, but it was ages ago 🙂 My Grandpa lived in Skåne, so I spent my summers in the South of Sweden growing up 🙂 Love the Swedish countryside!

        • It is an incredibly beautiful place!

  • gorgeous photos! Lucky to be enjoying travel!

    • Thank you! I wish I was able to travel more but it is something I will look to do more of in the future! Have you done any travelling?

      • Yeah I know what you mean. I’ve done a bit of traveling, but nowhere crazy in the past few years. I just have not had the money to do it, unfortunately, but I hope to travel early next year!

  • Love the photos!!!

    • Thank you! No fancy editing just some good lighting and some great apps! 🙂
