I hope you all are doing well! If you follow me on Twitter then you may hear me "freak out" from time to time on my Instagram theme. I know having the "perfect" Instagram theme is a major first world problem, but it is such a fun way to display all of your photos in an aesthetically pleasing way. Today I wanted to share some of my favorite apps I use to edit my photos and put together my Instagram theme.
P.S. If you haven't yet, be sure to follow me on Instagram for daily outfit inspiration, food photos and random ramblings on Insta Stories!
I'm sure many of you have heard of VSCO CAM, but for those of you who haven't it's a photo editing app that offers a variety of different filters. VSCO CAM is my favorite app to edit my photos on and I love the variety of filters they offer. I use this app to edit all of my Instagram photos and it use to be how I pre planned my feed (I'll get to that later on in the post!). My two favorites are HB1 and A5. I typically alternate between the two to help create a cohesive feed.
Snapseed is also a great photo editing app. I don't use this app for all of my photos mainly because it is more time consuming in my opinion and home girl doesn't have time for that. This app is great if you want to touch up specific areas in a photo with their brush feature. For example, let's say half of your photo is well lit and the other is darker, you can go into the app and select specific areas you wish to brighten up. This also can work for if you want to add or take away saturation in certain areas as well.
I'm pretty sure Airbrush is the Android version of FaceTune. From my understanding they do work pretty much the same. Airbrush is originally made for "photoshop esk" editing meaning taking pimples off of your face, making you look slimmer, whitening your teeth, etc. But in all reality I just use the whitening featuring on this app to whiten areas in my photo to make them brighter. No body changing editing here, I promise!
I mainly use this app when I take flatlay photos to help bright up the background more and make it more cohesive with my Instagram feed. I love a good flatlay and if you want to know all of my secrets for a good flatlay check out this post!
UNUM is a newly favorite app and I LOVE it! This app is great for preplanning your Instagram feed and the best part is that you can easily drag and move photos around to rearrange them. The app links up with your Instagram account so you are able to see which photos you have already posted. I previously was using VSCO CAM to preplan my feed, but ever since they had their new update, it has made it a little bit more difficult to see what my feed would actually look like.
And that's it! Those are some of my favorite apps as of late to edit my Instagram photos. What apps do you use for your Instagram feed? Let me know in the comments down below! I hope you all have a wonderful day and as always, thank you for reading!
