This tutorial shows  how to make Instagram ready images for Facebook’s go-to flagship, social media image promotion app.

When working on the photo manipulation of my images I often also add a cloned version of the strongest images with punchier settings, that I can use on my own Instagram feed.

With befores, adjustments, and afters these step-by-steps show how I used Adobe Lightroom to make the images punchy enough to stand out on Instagram.
