The raw BRITE photometry is affected by the presence of many outliers and instrumental effects. We present and discuss possible ways to correct the photometry for instrumental effects. Special attention is paid to the procedure of decorrelation which enables removal of most of the instrumental effects and considerably improves the quality of the final photometry.
