Quick Tip: How to Create an Instagram Filter in Photoshop in 1 Minute!

Do you want to create an Instagram-like filter in Photoshop in on your laptop/desktop in less than a minute?  Howard Pinsky has just the quick guide for you.

Everybody is using filters these days. You can add them very easily using Adobe Lightroom but Photoshop works differently and doesn’t have the same built in filters that you can add in the same way. However this doesn’t mean that you can’t be creative in Photoshop and make your own filters – and Pinsky’s tutorial shows you how you can do that very simply in less than a minute using various Adjustment Layers and blending techniques. Oh yeah – the best part of the video comes at the end…

You can check out more of Pinsky’s videos on our Photoshop Channel here on LensVid as well as many more Photoshop video tutorials on LensVid’s Photoshop section.
