Instagram is ingrained in your daily life: you capture everything from that seriously-perfect selfie to those special everyday moments, like what you had for lunch today. But the real question is, “what filter should I apply to create the best effect and make the most awesome prints?”
Instagram filters are perfect for adding your own artistic touch to your photographs. Each filter has a special quality and finish, but in the heat of the moment (aka, right before posting that photo), you might be confused on which filter to choose.
Here are our top three favorite Instagram filters:
Inkwell – This black and white filter is perfect for giving your photographs a vintage vibe. On paper, you’ll notice a much stronger contrast between light and dark, making the details of your photograph even more clear and vibrant.
Valencia – This filter increases the exposure of an image and adds a warm tonal quality, resulting in a faded appearance. Backlit screens can actually lighten the colors of your printed image, so you can expect the colors to be more prominent when you print photos with this filter.
Hudson – This filter is great for outdoor shots, as it increases the depth of shadows and adds a cool tint. With the heightened contrast of paper printing, a photograph filtered with Hudson will look very modern and icy.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with your photos! Fun tip: you can even create collages of the same photo with multiple filters. Print Instagram photos as 4×4 prints at any Walgreens today!
