2020 life seems to be surrounded by is social media don’t you think? And what do we post to these social media platforms? Photos! I never understood how people posted such aesthetically pleasing images onto their twitter accounts or Instagram stories, so I did some investigating of my own. I now use so many different apps to edit my photos for social media. In this post I’ll be sharing my top 3 photo editing apps, and showing you what they do! Lets get started…
Photoshop is the longest standing photo editing app on my phone. The main reason why I love it is because its free. There are in app purchases to gain access to premium features but i just use the free plan. I mainly use photoshop to brighten my photos, especially pictures I take that have white backgrounds. The brightening and whitening tool really help to make the white look so seamless.
The Photoshop app has a lot to offer, with collage options, lighting overlays and the ability to crop and adjust photos.
VSCO is another free app that I use for filters. I really love the M5 filter and use it a lot on my instagram photos. There is a paid section which allows you access to even more filters and editing software if you want to pay for it. A lot of these apps provide free trials which is great, so you can try it out before you commit to subscribing. VSCO allows you to do the general editing options such as adjusting the brightness, contrast and cropping.
Have you ever seen some people’s Instagram stories and they look like amazing collages? Well they probably used Unfold. Unfold is a new app I have recently started using and is the only app I pay monthly for, mainly because it gives you access to more templates than the free plan does. It’s only around £2 a month, which to me isn’t bad at all. I tend to create Instagram story posts with the app to attract my followers to view my new blog posts. If you don’t want to pay to use it, the free option has some great templates for you to use too.
Unfold is a new favourite and probably my favourite app out of the 3. It’s great for collaging your photographs and making cool and interesting Instagram story style photos.
DO YOU USE ANY APPS TO EDIT YOUR PHOTOS? IF SO, WHICH ONES DO YOU USE?
I always thought professional looking content was so hard to achieve, but with the help of these apps its made is so easy and accessible. All of these great tools are just a few taps away on your phone.
If any of you download please let me know! I’d love to help in any way I can 🙂
See you in the next one!
