Instagram is the most important app we have on our phones these days. If it’s not on the “gram”, it didn’t happen. Right? We have put together a list of our favorite apps to use not just in editing our photos, but to make Instagram a bit more fun! Here are our go-to apps to keep that grid looking like the perfect mosaic of our best self.

PS: also check out the best photo editing apps and how to use them here.

SNAPSEED

This Google app is the one we use the most. If you are to download only one of these apps, this is the one to get to make your photos look more professional. We use it to get rid of shadows on flat lays, spot-treat flawed areas of the photo, and create the cleanest image without having to bust out Photoshop.

VSCO CAM

VSCO Cam comes with a wide array of filters, many which are free. This is the only app we use for filters as it has some of the cleanest options that won’t send us back to ur 2012 Valencia filter days.

RETOUCH

Have a photobomber in your background? Make them disappear, amongst other things, with a simple highlight.

3D EFFECT

For something more exciting than a filter, get this app and tap into the new trend of 3D filters laid over your images. And thats not the only filter this app has, with blurred lines and other psychedelic enhancements available to spice up your feed.

BOOMERANG

Boomerangs are still a thing, and quite frankly, we don’t think people use them enough. They capture much more essence than a photo, with movement and expressiveness that photos cannot bring to life. Now built into the Instagram app as part of their Instagram Story feature, you don’t have to necessarily download the app. Just remember, if you want to post a Boomerang, it will be cropped (why this hasn’t been fixed yet boggles our minds). Next time you take a boomerang, step back a foot or two to ensure a full portrait-size #boom.
