Grow your Instagram with these phone apps.
Let’s talk Instagram! I love Instagram – as you probably can tell. I love photography and Instagram is a great place to showcase your personal aesthetics. I have eight go to apps that I use for my Instagram that I thought I would share if you are looking to elevate your IG game.
Afterlight has a variety of filters that are super cute! I do not use this app as much anymore but I use to only use Afterlight for editing my photos. I would recommend you check it out.
If I were to recommend one app that does it all, VSCO would be it. VSCO is my newest obsession. I love the filters and their editing functions. They present clean and natural filters that are super on trend.
Unfold is a new app for me. I like it for trendy frames. Some of the features do cost money. I would check it out if you are looking to mix up the look of your feed.
This app has been a total game changer. You can plan your posts and see what your grid will look like before you post to Instagram.
Snapseed is my go to for editing. If you are looking to brighten, crop, adjust or change the lightening of a photo, Snapseed is easy to use and proves great results. There are also some features for fixing imperfections like a mini-Photoshop on your phone.
- Lightroom Adobe
I do not use Lightroom as much now that I have Snapseed, but for any white balancing, this app is highly effective in creating that dreamy white you desire. I used this app a lot when I primarily shot food pics.
This is such a fun app! For a fun trendy look, use this app to take some photos! The filter is quite purple.
Canva, my one true love. Canva will change your life if you need templates for Instagram or social media content. To create beautiful collages or word content, check out Canva. All you do is place the photos and words you want on a complete template provided by Canva. You can pay to upgrade to have more of a selection of templates.
I am looking forward to seeing your Instagram posts! Comment below your IG handle so I can check out your work. I am always looking for new inspiration with my photos. If you have any apps you cannot live without, let me know what they are below.
