Snapseed is one of the best free photo editing apps for both iPhones and Androids, which is the reason it’s one of the most popular apps to use before uploading to Instagram. If you need one app to edit your photos with ease, Snapseed is it. Snapseed is highly popular due to its simplicity with most functions requiring just a swipe up and down or left and right to edit the photo.
6 Tools To Enhance Your Creativity On Instagram – VSCO
If there is one app that most Instagram influencers rave about, it’s VSCO. Yes, you can use this app to edit your photos manually, but most people go to it because it has the best filters for Instagram, including some of the best filters for nature and the outdoors. Although the free filters are pretty limited, many people dish out the extra cash to buy their additional presets individually or as a bundle.

Most professional photographers use Adobe products to edit their photos before posting on any social media platform. Adobe also offers easy-to-use editing apps for phones such as the Photoshop Express for quick edits. In this app, users can edit photos from their phone library, Creative Cloud or Lightroom CC Library. With functions like the magic wand, the app will edit your photos with one touch.
6 Tools To Enhance Your Creativity On Instagram – Adobe Lightroom
If there is one application that is a must-have for Instagram photographers, that is Adobe Lightroom. Most big Instagrammers use Adobe Lightroom to edit their photos on their computers, but the same application is available on the phone. Adobe Lightroom is an all-inclusive application that allows users to edit anything from basic edits such as “Exposure” and “Contrast” to advanced editing like “Tone Curve”, “Split Toning”, “Dehaze” and “Lens Correction”. This application is more advanced than most, but it also gives users the freedom to modify pretty much everything on their photos without having to use another application ever again.
