There are probably many reasons why you want to have an active and lively Instagram account. If you are a blogger or a writer, having a lot of organic Instagram followers means promoting your new posts gets easier. The same can be said for when you are a professional or an enthusiast of a particular hobby; many of your followers are eagerly waiting for your next valuable post and the visuals you share.
To really get your Instagram account going, great visuals is the key. You can maintain higher user engagement and attract many more followers when you post beautiful photos and Instagram videos that viewers like. The tools we are about to discuss in this article will help you spice up your Instagram posts and take them to the next level.
VSCO and Lightroom
The two editing apps I use the most on my phone are VSCO and Lightroom, and both of them are great tools to use if you want to take your Instagram photos to the next level. VSCO is more practical to use in a way, but that doesn’t mean you cannot do incredible things with this app.
If you do use VSCO regularly, I highly recommend subscribing to the premium version of the app. Not only will you get tons of filters to play with, you also get the ability to apply the same filters you use in your photos to videos.
For maximum flexibility and more controls, Adobe Lightroom for iOS or Android is the app to use. Lightroom is a professional photo editing app used by many photographers. It is incredible how Adobe has managed to cram the tools from the desktop version of Lightroom into this mobile app.
Speaking of tools from Adobe, another must-have app, if you are seriously into Instagram, is Adobe Spark. This is a relatively new app, but it’s a valuable one nonetheless. Adobe Spark is available for free. You can use the app with your Adobe CC subscription too.
Spark is designed to make creating great visuals easy. You can produce anything from posters to Instagram Stories posts in just a few taps with this app. There is also a built-in collage maker for when you need to combine multiple photos into an appealing post.
What I like the most about Adobe Spark is the many templates, design elements, and tools available within the app. You even get custom fonts!
One of the ways you can make your Instagram account more appealing to viewers is by being consistent. Take a look at popular Instagrammers and you will find a degree of consistency in the way they stylize their posts.
You too can make your feed look more uniform yet unique with the help of Preview. As the name of the app suggests, Preview lets you preview your Instagram posts in a grid before you post them on Instagram. The app takes the guesswork out of creating a consistent feed in Instagram.
With these tools, there is no reason why you cannot create a stunning Instagram feed and wow the audience. These are the tools you should use if you really want to spice up your Instagram posts.
