    Thanks for the tutorial! In pic tap go did you have to pay for the bright side and airy filters you use or did the come with the app!? Love you feed ?

    Hey Jilly!

    Are all of your photos consistent in sizing and if so, how/what do you use for the borders to align perfectly xo

    I always use the square option on my phone for taking photos then I add the white border in FaceTune!! xo

    Downloaded both a year ago when you mentioned them in an InstaStory and they’ve been so useful.
    Thanks the tutorial!

    Great vlog! Thanks for sharing 🙂 I would love to download the Pic Tap Go app (I have an android phone) but can’t find it in the play store. Is it an apple only app? Thanks!

  19. Jillian Harris

    June 29th, 2018 at 9:23 am

    Hi Lindsey! Darn!!! It looks like it’s only available for iOS!! XO

  20. Crissy

    June 29th, 2018 at 4:58 pm

    Were the expose and lighter filter in facetune part of the VIP package? Thanks!

  21. Jillian Harris

    July 18th, 2018 at 4:10 pm

    Select the filters option within the app (bottom right-hand corner), then click lighting, then select lighter or expose from here!! XO

  22. Pauline

    June 30th, 2018 at 9:32 pm

    Thank you so much for this very informative tutorial! I loved it! I still have a few questions about using Facetune to edit something other than faces ( like you did in the video) and was trying to find an instructional video that isn’t about editing face shots. Any suggestions? Or is there some how -to info when you download the app (which I haven’t done yet)?

  23. Jillian Harris

    July 18th, 2018 at 4:07 pm

    They actually do have a little built-in tutorial when you download the app!! And then from there you just have to play around with it to get the hang of it!! XO

  24. Pauline

    June 30th, 2018 at 9:42 pm

    Plus from what I hear PicTapGo for Android is going to launch in August. Becky Higgins, another Instagrammer, mentioned it in one of her Instagram stories this week. And there was a PicTapGo Instagram story up a couple of days ago saying the same but it seems to have expired -or I don’t know how to find it.

  25. Jillian Harris

    July 3rd, 2018 at 8:16 am

    That’s great to hear!!! Thanks for letting us know Pauline!!

  26. Michelle

    July 1st, 2018 at 6:05 am

    If you print a photo, will the filters view stay in place? Sorry I am old school and still love printing my photos!
    And thank you for all the tips and tricks from fashion to family!

  27. Jillian Harris

    July 3rd, 2018 at 8:15 am

    Yes!!! They will!! XOXO

  28. Lise

    I loved this so much, Jillian! Thank you!

  29. Lindsay

    July 20th, 2018 at 3:21 am

    Did expose and lighter come with Facetune or did you have to buy more filters?

  30. Jillian Harris

    July 20th, 2018 at 9:22 am

    Yes they do!! You can find them under the “Filters” icon on the bottom right-hand side!!

  31. Steph

    August 1st, 2018 at 1:26 pm

    Where is your case from?!

  32. Alexandra

    August 5th, 2018 at 4:54 am

    I love this video, so helpful! I just deleted Facetune last week but decided to re-download it after seeing this. Unfortunately I think it’s a newer version than yours because I can’t find the expose and lighter filters! Do you need to buy the vip filters to access them? Thank you!

  33. Jillian Harris

    August 7th, 2018 at 10:17 am

    If you scroll to the right you will find them under “Filters” … XOXO

    Thank you thank you thank you for sharing this tutorial!! I have always been a big fan of everyone in Team Jillys feed and have been so curious how to make my pictures light and bright will still being colorful. I feel like I’m finally able to edit my pictures the way I’ve wanted to!

    P.s. if you ever need another McKenzie to join your team… let me know! 🙂

    September 7th, 2018 at 12:36 pm

    Loved the video, downloading the apps now! I had a quick question, I know this post is focused on posting on Instagram but have you ever tried printing the photos afterwards? Do they print as nicely as they post??

    Thanks a bunch!

    Thank you so much! You changed my life. I have been looking for the right filter for a very long time. This is it! Thanks!! Happy Holiday!!!
