Everyone has an Instagram account these days, right? Are you still struggling with producing a cohesive account? A lot of people have these struggles and I use to as well. That was until I did a little research and found these four amazing apps on your phone that will help you edit your photos.
A Color Story: Before A Color Story came out, I use to use Lightroom and several other apps for each photo. Now I don’t have to look any further than this glorious app! You can download the app for free and choose to purchase the additional packages. I suggest you “splurge” and spend the $3.99 for all of the upgrades. You won’t regret it. It will help transform your photos.
Facetune: This app is $1.99 but completely worth it! A lot of people use this app to photoshop photos of themselves. And, by all means, if that’s what you want to use it for, go ahead. However, I think the best attributes of this app is the ability to whiten a photo and accentuate details.
Retouch: This can be used to get rid of unwanted reflections, objects, etc. As you can see above, I used this app to get rid of the reflection of my arm in the glass window! It will take a while to get use to the app, but once you do, it can be a life saver. Especially if you are traveling, and in a hurry, and unable to stop to take a perfect photo.
Scheduling: I use an app called UNUM. It helps you to schedule your photos so that they are aesthetically pleasing. You can also write out the caption and edit the photos with the app itself. You are supposed to be able to publish with the app as well, however, I haven’t had any luck with that feature, so far, which is a bit disappointing. Overall though, just being able to schedule out my posts to be cohesive is enough for me.
You can use Later to help you keep up with your scheduled calendar. Go over to IconoSquare and find out your optimization scheduling times. Then, upload all photos to Later, schedule for the appropriate times, and you can even write out your captions here as well. Later is not able to publish the photo for you, however, it will send you a reminder to for when it’s time to publish. Just click the publish now button and it will upload the photo to your IG account for you.
Update: IconoSquare is now a paid feature. You can use apps called Planoly and UMUN on your phone to research optimal publishing times.
I use an app called TFL Pro; it stores your hashtags for you! A lot of people advise typing up your hashtags and saving them in your notes. However, I prefer to use this app. Why? Because it not only allows you to make unlimited custom hashtags sets, but it also lets you search for popular hashtags based on relativity. You can get a free version or pay 99 cents for the pro version. P.S. I purchased the pro version because you can only make one custom hashtag set with the free version.
Tell me what apps you use to edit your photos on your phone! Also, don’t forget to follow along on my adventures through my IG account!
