Today I will tell you how to convert a normal photo into a Instagram Photo or giving a Instagram look to a normal photo using Picasa, First i think I will use Photoshop but normal people don’t know how to use Photoshop or don’t have this software. But you can easily get Picasa free from the Internet.
If you don’t know using Picasa then don’t worry just follow my steps , but before we will go to convert a normal photo into a Instagram photo or give a Instagram look to your normal photo please keep in mind these points.
11. Chose a photo which is related to your life.
2. Photo quality should be nice.
33. Don’t take a close snap photo like close snap of a flower or something.
44. A photo must be in JPEG format , you can change the format by opening it in Paint then save as diff format.
5. Use Google to see the actual Instagram photo for reference.
So now we will start how to convert a normal photo into Instagram photo or give a Instagram look to your normal photo-
Step 1: Open Picasa and click on the file then select “Add file to Picasa”
Step 2:Now select crop and chose a CD cover or square option and crop the photo as you want
Step 3:You can also edit your photo by adding color or contrast etc.
Step 4:Now chose 4th edit tab and chose “1960′s” option like this
Step 5: Untick the “Rounded Corners” option and chose the fade option as you like , you can apply this effect many times to give more food
Step 6:Now you have to put borders , so chose last edit tab then select “Border” option
Step 7:In this option keep zero “Inner thickness” and “Caption height’ and keep a decent “corner radius” and “outer thickness” like this pic
Step 8: Now your Instagram is ready , share it with your friend to make yourself cool
Tip: you can go to this site befunky.com and chose effects option then select “Vintage color” to give your Instagram rich look if you don’t want to use 1960′s effect in step 4.
