Let’s begin the tutorial.

Step 1: Adjust the basic panel

Instagram Lo-Fi filter basically increases contrast and darkens the photo. We’re going to do the same in Lightroom.

Adjust the below sliders

  • Shadow: -70
  • Whites: +75
  • Blacks: -60

This will add a nice looking high contrast look.

Time to increase the color

Adjust the below slider

  • Vibrance: +25

Here’s how the photo will look. Isn’t it looking beautiful?

Step 2: Change the hue

Instagram Lo-Fi filter changes the green color to slightly blue. So, guess what? We’re going to do the same in Lightroom.

Go to HSL/Colors panel. Make sure that the HSL is selected.

Adjust the below slider

  • Aqua: +55

This will change the green to blue color.
