Create Instagram’s X-Pro Effect in Photoshop | TrickyPhotoshop

Hello guys I am Vaibhav and in this tutorial you are going to show you “how to create Instagram’s X-Pro effect using Photoshop”. Last time I discussed about Instagram Valencia Effect which is a recommended tutorial if you are a Instagram lover. Well I have spent couple of hours to find a perfect match for the X-Pro effect and found one which gives looks 99% same as X-Pro effect. For this tutorial I am going to create lots of adjustment layer and after that I will add some filters to achieve desired output.
