I’m all about creating a cohesive Instagram feed and letting my photos tell a story even from a far. So today I’m sharing my 4 go-to apps that let me achieve the look im going for, every time!
UNUM – For organizing your feed before your upload
This is a great app if you want to plan out how your new Instagram photos are going to look with your existing feed. You can upload multiple pictures at a time and move them around to figure out what looks best. I use this every time I upload to make sure my colour story compliments my current feed.
Airbrush – Great for editing and enhancing your photos
I always brighten and sharpen my pictures in the Instagram app but I love using Airbrush for the ‘whitening’ and ‘brightening’ tools! The brightening tool really makes details pop, like the quilting on my purse, or the shine on my jewelry. It helps draw the eye to details that may have otherwise gone unnoticed.
Layout – Perfect for posting two pictures in one, or mirroring an image
I love using this app if my photo doesn’t fit in Instagram – theres nothing worse then a great photo being cut off by Instagrams weird sizing. I will usually put my photo in the Layout app and mirror it so it fits – or ill add two photos into one picture to show multiple angles.
Heres an example of what I’m talking about since its kind of hard to explain:
Canva – for adding words, and graphics
I use this app a ton for my blog and for making Pinterest graphics but it does come in handy for Instagram too. If you ever want to add text or graphics to one of your photos or even make a banner for your facebook or Twitter header, this app can help you do it. It has a ton of different layouts you can use for Instagram(and for so many other things) and is your BFF if you have a business on Instagram because it will help you create any kind of graphic you need (we’re hiring, sale! ect)
Here’s an example of a few graphics I’ve made:
I hope this post was helpful for anyone looking to step up their Instagram game, I use these apps everyday and find they provide me with everything I need to keep my Instagram just the way I like it! In other news, Peter and I are headed to Blue mountain tomorrow for a little Valentines day getaway. We booked at a hotel that has a full spa and gorgeous outdoor hot tubs that are built right into the rocks and landscape, its looks amazing!
