In an age where posting on social media seems to be the only proof that things are happening in your life, making your photos as presentable as possible has inevitably become top priority. While we're all about the live, don't document motto, it's important to recognise just how important visuals are for engaging with your viewers, attracting new customers, and evoke the personality of your brand! While finding a unique style is all you, where here to share some tools to help you build a creative visual platform, and make your breakfast look even yummier.
This doesn’t come as a surprise. VSCO is simply hands-down the most user-friendly photo editing App our there, and the most modern in terms of the aesthetic of its filters. The free filters that come with the app are great, but the possibilities are truly endless with the countless others you can purchase. Price: Free with In-App Purchases
Another one of our go-tos for photo editing, Afterlight is great in offering a number of other features that VSCO doesn’t have, such as light leaks or double exposure. Price: US$0.99 with In-App Purchases
Another one that most are familiar with, Repost App (as the name suggests) shares Instagram photos from other accounts on your own. It’s a great way to engage with customers by sharing their photos, all with a couple swipes. Price: Free with In-App Purchases
While there are countless of great collage-making Apps out there, none beats the simplicity of Layout by Instagram. Price: Free
Another App by Instagram, Boomerang makes your videos into a lopped GIF. You can get pretty creative with this to sometimes hilarious results. Price: Free
Flipagram is a video maker, where you can incorporate images, clips, and music to creatively share your media. We love using this for event recaps to combine all the photos in a fun way. Price: Free with In-App Purchases
