INSTAGRAM TIPS | HOW TO CREATE THE PERFECT FEED

As most of you probably know, I’m a huge fan of Instagram. I love the fact that it is all about photos rather than text which makes it a very visual platform. It can be so satisfying to scroll through your feed and see all the beautiful pictures taken by the people you follow. However, it sometimes can be challenging to create an appealing feed on your own page. That’s why I’m going to share some of my tips on how to create your perfect feed yourself. Because sharing is caring, right?

1. CHOOSE A THEME FOR YOUR FEED

First and foremost, you of course need to choose what you want your feed to look like. For example, do you want a travel feed, black and white feed, border feed, filter feed or blue feed? I personally have chosen for a white and clean feed with some color accents. This is a really important step, because by deciding what you want it to look like, you can adapt your photos to it.

2. CHOOSE AN EDITING STYLE YOU LIKE AND STICK TO IT

Try different ways of editing your photos, and see what you like the best. It took me a while to figure out the style of editing that I’m using right now, so play around with it for a bit. Once you find a style that you really like, start using this style on all the photos you post. Of course, you can adapt it slightly depending on the picture. Sticking with the same style of editing really helps to bring your feed to the next level, because it makes it look coherent and very appealing to viewers.

3. PLAN OUT YOUR FEED

Don’t just post your photos in a random order, but try to imagine what photos will look good in which order. This can be hard to imagine in your head, but don’t worry I have the perfect solution for it! You can use the app ‘UNUM’ to upload your photos in a ‘private’ feed. It allows you to move around you photos so you can see what looks good together. This way you can plan your perfect feed and see what it will look like before you actually upload your photos on Instagram.

I hope these three tips are helpful! If you want to see what my Instagram page looks like, you can follow me here

    Good simple yet helpful tips, yet what do you mean by editing style, the filters, the font, the subject material? Or all three?

      Thank you! I’m glad it’s helpful! I basically mean the way you edit your photos. So for example the filter you use, the exposure, saturation, contrast etc. xx

    Great tips! I find it hard for me to stick to theme on my Instagram because sometimes I have great photos I want to share that just does not go with the theme. But it’s going much better now!

      Thank you! Yes, I have the same problem sometimes. Some photos just don’t fit my feed as good as others which is sad because I won’t be able to upload them. I’m glad it’s going better with your Instagram now and hopefully my tips are helpful! x
