4 Best Editing Apps to Use for Instagram Photos

Today’s post is getting into the nitty gritty of my Instagram page. I’ll be talking about the 4 best editing apps to use for Instagram photos, and what techniques I use to create a more cohesive feed. Instagram has definitely become the Beyonce of social media, in my opinion. It’s usually the first look at a brand/influencer before deciding whether to visit that business/person’s website.

1) Those that have a monochromatic feel to it with very minimal color, usually sticking to black and white

2) The ultra colorful ones that have a pop of bright color that is perfectly contrasted and highlighted. In some way, all the colors come together to make the feed bright and airy (i.e. Color Me Courtney)

3) The feeds that play off neutral colors such as white, gray, & tan. This is how my feed is. If you couldn’t tell, blush is another color I consider a “neutral”. The blush color is consistent through my feed. Although not in every pic, it still remains one of the main colors of my brand.ifit 101 instagramifit 101 instagram

If you’re just starting to create a more cohesive feed, it takes time. You definitely do not want to bombard your followers with 20,000 pics a day just to get that perfect feed but uploading at least twice a day will slowly start to bring about the results you’re looking for. For me, because my feed works with the aforementioned colors, I try my absolute hardest to stick to that palette when posting.

Let me be real, sometimes it’s frustrating Lol. Having to constantly make sure that your feed is looking just right and all, but these are the 4 apps I use consistently:

Some other apps I find myself using (but not as consistent as the four above) are:

VSCO: This app has a wide range of filters for you to use at your disposable. There are free and paid filter bundles. It’s quite easy to use as well. Sort of like Snapseed.

Collageable: I use this very rarely, because I rarely (if ever) put collages on my feed, but I like to have it there just in case!

AfterPhoto: This app allows you to write text on your pictures. It’s the very basic version to Canva.

ColorStory: If you plan to infuse your feed with color galore, I suggest you get this app! It will make the colors POP in your photos. There are free and paid filter bundles, just like VSCO. But they have a very wide range so you are sure to find one that fits your fancy.

If you’re aiming for a specific color palette type of feed, chose a color that you know you won’t get tired of. I know I won’t get tired of blush, so it shall remain on my feed. I do incorporate other neutral colors onto the page but I make sure that the photo either has blush elements in in, or is next to a photo that has blush elements. A test that I do is hold my phone about 2 feet from my face. For some reason this helps me to gage what my feed actually looks like from afar. If it’s pleasing to your eyes, then you’re well on your way to creating that cohesive feed!

I hope that this post helps some of you who ever wondered about some of ins and outs of my IG page. It’s definitely not rocket science and I’m sure you probably have these apps already. But it’s just utilizing them efficiently and location, location, location! If you like “tech-y” post like these, please let me know and I will try and put more content out like this!
