There are so many editing apps out there today, it’s hard to know exactly what works & which of their tools are the most useful. Today, I wanted to share a few of my favorite editing apps that I use on (an almost) daily basis for Instagram. Most of these I have learned about through other bloggers/social media influencers — I love seeing what works for those who create amazing content & what they use for that professional look. I use the apps in this particular order and depending on what needs to be tweaked in each photo (i.e. some may not require all of these apps).

1 . This editing app was on Desi Perkins “favorite apps” video and while she is a YouTuber, I decided to try this app out for myself. The possibilities are endless & reviewers say that it is as close to Photoshop as you can get on your phone. While most of her favorite features she uses for makeup photos, I like using it for mirroring images. I have yet to down the rabbit hole of it’s capabilities, but it looks really fun & wildly creative!
2 . While this app is may not surprise you (I feel like everyone uses this for selfies), it is still one of my go-tos. I use this most for the whitening tool to help bump up the brightness on my flatlay backgrounds.
3 . Peyton from “Love’n’Labels” talked about this app in her favorite apps post & I am obsessed! I mainly use this app for filters and her recommandation was the “Flashes of Delight” package. I too love this package and narrowed down my favorites — which are Valerie, Lite Bright & Evelyn. Though I use them with a light hand, it’s my favorite way to filter now.
4 . I use this app daily and it helps keep my Instagram nice & organized. Before posting a photo, I upload it to VSCO to see how it will look in the grid. You can also use filters and other editing tools, but I mainly use it for the layout aspect.
