Instagram | My Favourite Photo Editing Apps



Hi Lovelies! I thought I would do a little post about how I edit my Instagram photos, this is not a 'my Instagram is fabulous so heres how I get it that way', it's more of a I really like the Apps I use so if you're looking for some new Apps to try out, this is a post for you my dears.

I am now fully obsessed with Instagram and kind of naughtily neglect Twitter, but it has taken me a while to get the stage of developing some kind of 'theme' for my feed and BOIII was it stressful. I still have days where I post something that fucks it all up, but you know life goes on (kind of, I do have a mini meltdown for 5 seconds). Anyhuuuu lets talk about my three fave apps to get my photos Insta Ready.



ColorStory

What I want to know, is what the hell I did before I found this app!?? I tried VSCO and didn't really like it that much, and this kind of has a similar vibe in the way that you can purchase different filter packages so I don't know why I didn't gel with VSCO. You can forget Valencia that shit is old news girl, get yourself this app and enjoy hundreds of gorgeous filters. My favourite packages are Airy, for which I use Snowcone on ALL of my flat lay photos (it makes them bright, white and all pinterest worthy) and I also like Blush as that has some perfect filters for my selfies.  You can also do all of your other standard editing like cropping and messing with the exposure.

Snapseed

I haven't been using this as much recently, but regardless it's still a great App. You can use a selective tool to brighten tiny sections of your photo whilst keeping the rest as it is, which is soo handy! I use this to make sure my photos don't have any shadows or little dark patches without having to brighten the whole photo too much and ending up with a bad quality photo. I found this so helpful through the dark winter months when there wasn't a lot of natural light to work with!

Diptic

Last but not least I use this App to add a border round all of my photos. I've gone for the standard square photo look with my feed, so this adds a thin white border around all of my photos which I think has really pulled my Instagram together. You can also use this app to create collages as they have tons of frames to work with!

What are you favourite apps?

  5. I love A Color Story, I still use VSCO a lot but my feed has a little more of that vibe. I love the 04 filter and use it a lot, but for some reason I've been enjoying a sort of dusty fade lately, must be these in between seasons. (see here : https://www.instagram.com/quiet_nosferatu/ ) but I have found myself doing a lot of editing with A Color Story. I love those bright whites and color pops. The Lightbright filter is my absolute FAVE. I haven't tried snapseed but I hear it is great. I didn't know you could so selectively edit with it. And aas far as diptic, it sounds nice. I use pic sticth but I'm going to check out your collage builder app. Thanks for the tips.
