How I Edit Photos

I've been looking for a good why to edit my photos. (because I plan on taking more this summer!) I don't want to get Photoshop yet because #highschoollife, but I think editing my photos would definitely help my blog! So I remember the website "picnik" aka throwback to middle school when ALL our photos were edited, and I remembered that it shut down, but they had a link to Google Photos. 

I. Am. Obsessed. The first time I used Google Photos was like a year ago, and I didn't really like it, but now I understand it. It's fabulous. I've spent the past week editing photos, and I thought I'd share with y'all how I do it. :)

Go to photos.google.com and upload pictures. You'll have to go find them in the album afterwards. I picked a picture of my friend Mac from our last day of newspaper together!


Click on the photo you want to edit, and then click edit. There will be a side bar that looks like this. 

First I will tune the image. It gives the photo more brightness and color. (Or less!)

The next thing I do is go to "center focus." My personal favorite is the Old Lens option. It slightly blurs the edges, and I love the effect it gives. 

For other effects, my personal favorite is "vintage." On this photo of Mac I used "Ella." 

Here are other photos I've edited
