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.

Create the gifs of your dreams with GIPHY Cam, an app that lets you capture and embellish gifs to your heart’s content. Simply record a gif, add effects (moustaches, googly eyes, and other oddball add-ons available) and export your gif for social media sharing. The downside to this app is its functionality is limited to gifs only, but GIPHY Cam is like a specialty ramen restaurant – you know it’s good because it’s the only thing they do. GIPHY Cam is available for free on iOS and Android.
InShot is an iOS- and Android-friendly video editor that lets you add music, effects, voice overs, emojis, and text to your videos. You can also play with video speed, merge multiple videos together, and cut, split and trim videos. The app is perfect for editing videos for Instagram posts, IGVT and Stories, as well as videos for other platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. The baseline app is free, and in-app purchases are available for users to buy special effects and premium features. However, a few users have experienced technical glitches and frustrations when adding text and other features to their videos, so consider trying the free version before paying for extra features.
You can’t beat Canva’s all-inclusive set of features. Whether you’re looking to edit photos, leverage their huge collection of stock photography, or create an infographic that will pop off the screen, you can do it all on this platform. Most of that functionality is available for free on all devices (including desktop), which is why it ranks #1 on our list of photo editing apps for Instagram.
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.
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.
Freemake is a free video converter that can modify and convert videos, extract audio from video clips, and embed videos to websites. Simple and fast, Freemake can be used to convert video clips to be played on various mobile devices and gadgets. The software can convert videos between more than 500 video file formats and supports multiple audio and image file formats for creating slideshows and video clips.
Biteable’s simple interface helps you get to work right away even if you have little or no video editing experience. There’s no need to download or install anything on to your computer and it is free to use, though you can pay to remove the small watermarks from your videos. There are many templates available, and a wealth of stock footage on offer if you need it.
