Building my social media over the past two years has been a tedious process. You have to interact, follow, unfollow when necessary, post relevant photos to your brand, and so much more. One of the greatest things you can do for your Instagram is to download the following apps, get to know them, and use them to take the quality of your photos to the next level! (I do things a little bit differently for my blog, so we are going to focus on making swoon-worthy Instagram photos!)
Apps you need:
- VSCO Cam: Every single photo I post to Instagram gets a once-over in VSCO. I’ve found that VSCO delivers the highest quality of photo.
- Rhonna Designs: Any time I add embellishments or wording to a picture on my Instagram, it’s through Rhonna. I’ve purchased most of the fonts and all the embellishments, totally worth it.
- Instasize: I don’t post a lot of collages, but when I need to, I exclusively use Instasize. It’s super easy and makes clean collages. (I used this app to make all the pictures in this post so I won’t be giving examples!) Also, some people are a fan of the white borders for Instagram photos and this is a great app for that. DO NOT use this app to add a filter to your picture. It will distort it.
When it comes to taking pictures for IG, I either use my iPhone or Canon Rebel (promoting one of my blog posts or a shop product are times I may use the Canon). Like I said, every photo gets a once-over in VSCO. Here are some examples of photos I’ve posted to my Instagram that have high engagements (likes & comments):
