Adobe makes a second appearance on our list with Photoshop Express, a mobile-friendly, scaled-down version of their popular photo editing software, Photoshop. This iOS and Android app lets you edit photos, add text, play with image colours, watermark images, and create collages all in one place. Users also report it being easy to use if you’re already familiar with Adobe’s products. However, there’s a downside for non-Adobe users. The app is free, but to access premium features, you have to have a paid Adobe account and login. Even so, its free features are worth a download.
Later is a scheduling platform created specifically for Instagram that comes with a whole suite of extra features. Not only can you schedule posts, but you can collect user-generated content, track hashtags, create shoppable posts, and analyse your performance. The app is also an official Instagram partner and uses their API to import photos, making it a highly secure option for companies concerned with the security of their social accounts. However, Later is not an automated tool; since it’s a web-based app (and because Instagram only allows users to post via the mobile app), later sends you a notification when it’s time to post, at which point users have to take the post live themselves. It’s an extra step that might be worth it to take advantage of the rest of their features. Later is free for individuals, but can cost up to $49 per month for large companies.
VSCO is an iOS and Android photo editing app designed for creatives, by creatives. Its features are similar to the other apps on this list – editing, filtering, frames, and more – but VSCO’s biggest differentiator is its minimal interface. If you’re a junkie for a clean, crisp, easy-to-use app, VSCO might be for you. However, a few users have reported technical glitches with uploading and sharing photos. Luckily, you can try out VSCO free for 7 days, giving you a chance to experience it for yourself. After that, VSCO is $19.99 per year.
If you shoot for Instagram using a GoPro camera, the GoPro app will make your life much easier. While capturing footage, you can use your photo to adjust the video or time-lapse settings and get a clear preview of your shot. Once your video is recorded, you can do your editing right in the GoPro app, from trimming and combining clips to adding slow motion to using filters and stickers. The app will also compile the best moments from your recent footage (selected by an algorithm) into QuikStories that you can share directly to Instagram.
Having been named both “Best New App” and “App of the Day” by Apple, A Color Story offers filters and presets designed by professional photographers and influencers. There are also some advanced editing tools, and you can create and save custom filters to develop a unique brand look. Grid planning tools help you ensure your entire Instagram grid is unified and cohesive.
Combine your photos with Adobe’s layouts and fonts to create creative graphics perfect for sharing on Instagram. If you’re lacking photos of your own, you can also select from thousands of free images directly within this Instagram app. You can also create graphics that incorporate no photos at all for an eye-catching way to share text-based posts on a visual social network.
Despite the fact that Instagram has become one of the most popular social media outlets (alongside platforms like Facebook and superseding others like Snapchat or Twitter), it didn’t get there based on the quality of its video creation experience. In fact, the platform reached its popularity initially by completely ignoring video options: instead, it focused on easy-to-use phone photography that offered a lot of filters, editing and posting options. This allowed people to post nice-looking photos from their smartphones more quickly and easily than ever before, and is why the platform became so successful.

Instagram only supported 1:1 images and videos and automatically cropped if it doesn’t fit. This didn’t quite work for long and they introduced a portrait mode with a 4:5 aspect ratio for pictures and videos. Youcut lets you crop videos for Instagram in both square and portrait mode but also has a few more crop sizes for Youtube, TikTok(previously Musical.ly), and various cinema ratios.

Buffer is a free social media scheduling app that integrates with Instagram and a number of other popular social platforms. This app lets you automatically post single images, and sends reminders so you can manually post videos and multiple image-posts. As an added bonus, the app automatically identifies which of your posts perform well so you can optimise your feed. The biggest downside to Buffer is its price point. While it’s free for individuals, the app costs up to $399 per month for large brands who want to manage several accounts and users. Buffer is available as a web, iOS and Android app.
