So first and foremost, I edit all of my photos with Adobe Lightroom Classic CC. I pay $10 a month for th Classic CC so I can edit on my laptop and with the app on my phone. But there is a free version that you can get on your phone so you don’t have to pay monthly! This is a pretty intense editor and you can change almost anything you want in a picture. There is a learning curve with Lightroom but once you get the hang of it you’ll be fine! I will link it HERE!
LET’S TALK PRESETS

- Slightly lower temperature
I really hope this was helpful for you! I think the video is the best way to see how everything works. So sorry for my sick voice, the little kiddos are getting me sick, yuck! Anywho, please DM me with any questions you may have, I am 100% here to help. Lightroom can be very difficult to navigate at first. Youtube is a great resource with thousands of editing tips! Good luck my loves! Stay warm!!!
