Developed by Google, this precision photo-editing Instagram app works on both JPG and RAW files, making it a powerful tool for professional photographers. Beyond filtering your photos, you can perform serious photo-editing tasks like removing elements (or even people) from the photo, adjusting the geometry of buildings, and using curves to control the brightness of your image.
We all love Instagram. But, as an ecommerce store owner you know the importance of making your brand look professional. Take your Instagram stories to the next level with these video editing apps.

Hype Type is an animated text video app that allows users to animate text on top of video – a perfect combination for Instagram since some users watch videos without sound. While this app only features typography motion graphics, it does so better than most of the competition, making it a great staple in your Instagram toolbox. Hype Type is free on iOS and Android for the basic version; premium text styles and animations can be purchased in the app.
START CRUSHING YOUR INSTAGRAM STORIES! Why THIS matters
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.
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.
Iconosquare is an Instagram (and Facebook) analytics web app that lets users measure impressions, track follower demographics (location, language, and more), and learn about when their audience is online to boost visibility. It also tracks all the basics – comments, views, likes, etc. – to give a baseline for how each individual post performs. While its analytics capabilities are robust, it doesn’t integrate with Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ or other popular platforms. Iconosquare starts at $29 per month, but large agencies managing multiple client accounts should contact Iconosquare’s sales team for a custom quote.
