My favourite apps for Instagram

These are my favourite apps and tools for Instagram that are my secret weapons when it comes to that famous previously-known-as-photo-sharing-app. These apps have allowed me to take my photo editing skills to the next level, create stylish stories, store and organise my photo, have a smart instagram bio & most recently edit videos for reels. I’ve used some of these for years, but I have a couple of new additions to my favourite list too!

Editing Apps for Instagram photos

Lightroom is my number one editing software. It’s the biggest and best and when I started using it completely transformed my photos & my love for photography. I have the photography Creative cloud plan, which includes Lightroom, Photoshop and a lot of other apps! If I would have to choose just one App for my instagram on this list, it would be Lightoom!

I’ve been also using VSCO for years, and think it’s a brilliant app. I’ve been using the free version, but I think they’ve changed it so that you can’t save images unless you are a paying member these days – but I might be wrong as have had mine for years.

A newer addition to my photo editing apps is Tezza. It has filters and fun effects and I often use both, mainly for my stories. I have the pro version and I do also quite like the editing tools in Tezza – and it also allows you to play with individual colours which is a must for me.

App for organising & planning content photos

I’m currently using Notion for planning my content, and I love it for other planning & staying organised too.

I also love Notes app, my whole life is stored inside that little app.

Story apps

My current favourite is Canva, it’s a great app for creating beautiful, branded stories that stand out from the crowd. Other one I use regularly is Unfold, sometimes Temply and Mojo.

Video editing apps

I use mainly Capcut, which is a great video editing software if you are after a simple-to-use desktop editor like me. You can start using it for free, and decide later if you want to upgrade to the Pro versions.

‘Special effects’ Apps for Instagram

Vimage for the cinemagraphic effects and Imgplay for creating stop motion videos.
