Instagram image apps are essential to spruce up the pictures on your grid. After all, what’s the point of posting pics of your astounding work if the images aren’t up to snuff? To combat this, we have five Instagram apps to help attract followers by creating picture-perfect posts.
Snapseed is a fantastic image editing app that focuses on using brushes, textures, lighting effects and more! The app has plenty of features to jazz up your images, from controlling the brightness, saturation and sharpening all the way through to lens blurring, white balancing and erasing. You can then export your image to Instagram or into more filter-based apps like the one featured below.
VSCO is the perfect Instagram image app for both pictures and video. Packaged with both free and paid-for filters on subscription, VSCO enables you to fine-tune areas such as fades, skin tones, exposure, sharpens, clarity and plenty more. Free filters such as the vibrant C1 are great to give your pics more colour, whereas the desaturated M5 filter is great for portraits. Meanwhile, paid for filters such as A4 and A6 provide a rich brightness that are great for indoor areas such as your salon.
With Instagram heading ever more towards video, it’s vital to grab an app that helps with imagery in vids. Videoshop does just that, making sure hair and makeup pops by blurring backgrounds, masking areas and whitening areas hidden in shadow. It even comes with features to slow down the video, add music and fit the playback in a 15-second Insta Story, making it ideal to fit into other Story hacks.
