1. Afterlight [ download ]
I love that this app has an a lot of different filters and you can crop your photos in the app as well. It’s always the first app I use when editing.
2. A Beautiful Mess [ download ]
This is the app I always go to when I add texts or when I want to scale/add white bars to my photos. This app also has doodles, borders, and phrases you can add on top to your photos as well.
3. PicFrame [ download ]
While the ‘A Beautiful Mess’ has an area for multiple photos. I prefer PicFrame better. You can also change the size of the finished image size from an instagram square to rectangles and add videos too.
4. PicPlayPost [ download ]
I downloaded this app before PicFrame had the feature to add videos. However, this app is still the one I go to for videos/gifs. It’s the one I use to upload gifs to instagram. Like THIS one.
5. Followers + [ download ]
This is a straight forward app I really only use for my @gabrielaelenadesigns Instagram account. I use it to see the amount of followers and unfollowers I receive and to keep track of stats such as “likes per photo”.
6. Repost [ download ]
I don’t use this app very often, but to share photos from other instagram users this is the app to use. Especially for when people have giveaways or you’d like to also include all of their caption from the photo you’re uploading.
