Instagram is a great platform for sharing photos, whether you’re a photographer, business, or just like to have fun and share your life. I’m a heavy Instagram user, but I don’t typically use the filters. I often see topics floating around the Internet regarding how to get some of the filters in Lightroom, so I thought I would give it a try.

Valencia is a is a pretty basic filter effect. It gives your photo a cool vintage feel without making any drastic changes. The main tool I use to re-create this filter was the tone curve. The other settings are fairly general because Instagram’s filters are designed to work with a wide variety of photo types. With that being said, you’ll probably need to check the basic settings and fine-tune them to match your particular photo.
