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 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 Instagram photos
I’m currently using mainly trello for planning my content, but considering swapping it a more specific app. I’m currently trialling a couple and will update this post once I find the best one!
I also love Notes app, my whole life is stored inside that little app.
My current favourite is Canva, it’s a great app for creating beautiful, branded stories that stand out from the crowd. Download this beautiful set of 25 instagram story templates- ready to use as they are or you can customise all the colours, fonts, images, and text to match your business branding and aesthetics within Canva.
Video editing apps
I use mainly Premier Rush, which is a great video editing software if you are after simple editor like me. You can start using it for free, and I’m really happy with it, it’s simple enough and I can export videos easily for any format I do also use Filmm, Vixer and CapCut apps for my videos.
‘Special effects’ Apps for Instagram
As mentioned in the video I use a couple of different ones for various purposes, Canva for collages and adding any text. Vimage for the cinemagraphic effects and Imgplay for creating stop motion videos.
I hope you found this useful and new apps to use!
