Hey, this is Scott of Photography Banzai. Today we’re gonna
go through the full process of looking through some old photos. Re-editing them and
uploading them to Instagram. I have that chronological account have been going
through my old photos. I’m up to 2013, so still a ways to go. But it’s pretty fun.
Let’s get started! Here is a Acdsee Photo Studio Ultimate 2019… The first tab is the management tab.
That’s where you can basically look through thumbnails, and things
of that nature. Pick the folder… Went to a sushi restaurant or basically Japanese
styled restaurant. Took some photos of everyone’s food. Wrote up a little
article. So with the Instagram post it’ll be focused on that. With the text I’m
gonna write up a description. I usually put the date the photos were taken. I put
the camera, and the lens. I don’t put any specifics like aperture and all that.
it’s not super important for what I’m doing. I go into the View tab and decide
which photos I want to potentially edit. And I’ll tag them with a color. Or I
could also use the rating, but in a lot of my old photos I had used to the
rating and I don’t want to mess with that. So it use just basically “yellow” as
the potential photos that I want to edit. When I’m looking at these photos and
trying to decide if the main subject will fit within a square, and also have
some interest on the sides or whatever based on what type of framing I would
like with that specific photo. So some of these photos are a little too close.
Once I have a selection of photos that I potentially want to use in the post, I
will edit one single photo. Crop it at the 1:1 ratio. Just basic crop right in
the center, and I’ll just the settings as I like. Usually a little contrast. Some
de-haze. All the basic controls for that develop tab. I’ll add and adjust things. I
will definitely add some noise reduction and also some sharpness. After that I
will paste that setting to the rest of the photos. That way I have just a good
starting place for all of them with that crop so I don’t have to do multiple
things over and over again. From there I go back to develop with all the photos,
and I adjust the crop for each one… Deciding if it will work or if it won’t work. Because the framing is the most important thing
for me. If it doesn’t work I will remove the tag and not use that photo. From that
point I might re-edit the photos a little bit. Adjusting contrast and
things as second time. If that’s fine I’ll go into the edit tab. From there I
add some extra pop to the photos. These controls seem to give me a little bit
more of what I want in the end, so I use light EQ and also the auto levels a lot
of the time. There are some other ones that I’ll use, but those two seem to work
really well to give me that final image that I’m looking for. With the auto
levels I usually use just the contrast. Because the one with the colors doesn’t
seem to work too well a lot of the time. It adds a really green tinge quite often, so
usually just you contrast on that. But in general it works really well to give me
that extra pop to the photos. Once I feel that the image is where I wanted to be I
can export it to my specific profile for Instagram. It’s set up with PNG format.
24-bit so you don’t lose anything with a compression. 1080 by 1080… I think you can
do a little bit larger and potentially get a better result on Instagram, but
from my research 1080 by 1080 is good enough. I go through each one using
that specific profile to export that PNG. With Instagram you’re basically limited
to using your phone to upload photos. That add some complexity to this whole
process. it’s very strange that they decided to do that. They don’t care too
much about desktop even though they’ve been slowly adding a few little features
here and there to it. So I need to get the photos onto my phone to upload it to
Instagram. In that case there are two ways that I know of doing it. One is
connecting your phone to the computer. In this case Windows 10. I just connected
and adjust Android to act as a storage device. And in that case I can easily
just drag the images over to the phone itself. Another option is using some type
of online service to push the images too and then you can pull them to your phone
through the internet. I use that a lot as well… Google Drive, whatever works for you.
And I also put my notes I wrote up on Google Drive..
Google Docs.. to pull into my phone that I can just paste into Instagram. So I don’t
have to try to type things out on the phone, that would be a big hassle. I save
all of my notes in case I want to do this process again in the future with
some other service. Changing the crop. Changing the focus of that gallery, but
it’s good to keep that stuff. Back it up. Of course it’s on Instagram itself, but
that would be a hassle to deal with. So I have some online documents that I just
paste all those notes into. One thing to take note of with your phone. At least
this is what I do. I set the brightness to 50% and I keep it consistent. I also
make sure that I don’t have the comfort view feature on because it adds a very
strong yellow tinge to the screen of the phone itself. I use that a lot, but in
this case I want that off. Once we’re in Instagram you want to upload your photos.
Decide which one you want as the cover. From there you can hit that little icon
that shows two squares. And that’ll get you into the mode where you can have
multiple photos. And then I can click next.. or hit next.. on the screen and
potentially add some type of filter. I do add the filters quite often, but I don’t
go full-bore on them like full 100%. I adjust things as needed. The reason that
I do this a lot of the time is to give all of the images in the set a
consistent feel to them. Of course you can do that on the computer if you
prefer that, but I’m trying to fit the whole vibe of
this service. The feel of that style of presentation. So that’s my main goal is
just to have them a similar feel as a full self-contained set. I’ll check them
out and make sure that they all fit well with the given filter and adjust things
percentage-wise to see if it works out. From there I’ll go next and paste in all
the notes that I had into Instagram itself. So at that point upload
and we’re done with that specific set. That was a look at the
full process of picking photos, editing, and uploading to the Instagram account.
Pretty fun process. Nice project! Hope you enjoyed the video.
