You Need PhotoDirector if You Use Instagram
You know those flawless Instagram photos you love? The ones with perfect lighting and bright colors that look like they were taken by a professional? The gorgeous landscapes with inspiring words like “you can do it” on them? The cat memes? You can create them, too.
How? Simple: You need PhotoDirector if you use Instagram and want to post only perfectly Instagram-worthy images. PhotoDirector is the app that will help you turn your cell phone pics into professional-looking photograph, hilarious memes, or works of art from your unique vision.
What is PhotoDirector?
PhotoDirector is a comprehensive photo editing app for iPhone and Android. It has the features of a professional software like PhotoShop and the fun of collage and picture frame apps. You can adjust white balance and RGB color panels as easily as you can add a Christmas-themed frame to a photo of your dog in the snow. You can even remove unwanted objects and people from photos with PhotoDirector – so say good-bye to photobombers!
The app is free to download and very user-friendly. You only need an extra minute or two to use this app to edit your photos instead of editing them in Instagram. That time is well worth it because the feature options from PhotoDirector are far superior to Instagram. (I dare say it’s almost as good as Photoshop.)
Why Do You Need PhotoDirector if You Use Instagram?
These days, you can’t get away with grainy, dark photos on Instagram. Everyone is a photographer. You’re not special because you took a photo of your feet in the sand or your fancy dinner. (You’re especially not unique for photographing your cat.) It takes more than that now. One really awful photo is enough for someone to unfollow you in this competitive social media climate.
You’ve got to be a good photographer if you want likes and followers. You have to care about white balance, brightness, contrast, and blur. PhotoDirector can help you with all of these things and more. It’s simple enough for people who just use Instagram for fun and powerful enough for people using Instagram to promote a business.
A solid photo editing software like PhotoDirector also helps you create a cohesive look or theme for your Instagram profile. If you are using your Instagram profile to attract new customers to your business it has to look well-executed. Instagram expert Chalene Johnson says, “We follow accounts now not because it looks like they have an interesting life, but because their account provides us a theme, a specific topic or subject matter of which we are interested in getting great ideas or value.” High quality photos bound by a specific theme, color scheme, or aesthetic give the first impression you want to give: that you are thoughtful and provide great value to followers.
How Do You Use PhotoDirector?
PhotoDirector is free to download for iPhone and Android. When you open it up for the first time, you’ll have the option to go through a tutorial to learn how to use it. I always want to skip these things, but the PhotoDirector one is actually very useful. It shows you just the basics and you can click past it anytime.
It’s as simple to use as the editing tools in Instagram, just with much more flexibility!
Import a photo from your camera roll or take a photo and start editing right away.
Tool categories are available as a scroll bar at the bottom of the screen. Scroll from left to right, from “Basic Edit” to “Scene.” In between, you’ll find tools like Removal, Effects, Skin Tool, and Frame. Tap any of these words to start using the tools.
Many tools have a sub-menu that pops up above the scroll bars. Under Basic Edit, for example, you may Crop or Rotate the photo. Effects works similarly as a huge menu of filters pops onto the screen. Removal, conversely, leads to just one tool that you start using without navigating through a second menu.
If you find Instagram intuitive, you’ll find PhotoDirector intuitive. But if you do need a little help, you can find PhotoDirector Mobile tutorials online from Cyberlink.
What Are Some Of The Most Fun Features In PhotoDirector?
Once you get beyond the standard editing tools of crop, rotate and adjust white balance there is a whole world of fun to be had with PhotoDirector.
Add faux drips of paint, brilliant lens flares, cracks and scratches, and grungy, worn style to your pics with overlays. You can even add in Light Leak to make it look like you took your pics on an old school film camera. The best part is, you can use as many overlays per photo as you’d like. Mix up layer upon layer to create really cool, one of a kind images!
Express yourself on thought bubbles, Post-Its or just text on your photos. You could give thoughts to your dog with a bubble above his head or publicly shame your spouse into taking out the trash with a Post-It on your photo. The options are endless, for example, inspirational quotes on beautiful backgrounds are crazy popular on Instagram so you can make those in PhotoDirector thanks to Text Bubble.
Bring the focus to one part of a photo with the Blur Tool. If you want to make all your friends jealous you could put your Mai Tai with its little tropical umbrella in focus and blur out the beach beyond. If you’re promoting your pet sitting business, you could put a cute puppy face in focus and blur out the chaos of toys, leashes, and chewed up shoes that come with unruly pups.
PhotoDirector is ridiculously easy to use and makes your smartphone photographs look like professional imagery. To attract likes and followers on Instagram these days, you need photos that look polished and professional. So, you need PhotoDirector if you use Instagram. And remember, it’s free! So what are you waiting for?
