Digital Natives Demo: Instagram Editing Apps

Instagram. It’s all about viewing life through rose-tinted glasses with tinted filters to match. If Mayfair with a touch of soft focus and a pinch of vignetting simply isn’t doing it for you anymore, then you’re probably in need of an Insta-extension. The two Instagram have launched themselves so far are dreamy and link with effortless ease to the main app. Hyperlapse makes time-lapse videos with ‘in-house stabilisation’. Layout makes beautiful collages without any clip art comedy frames. But they haven’t got all corners covered yet – so which other editing apps might be worth a cheeky download?

BREAD AND BUTTER:

Adds an affirmation or caption with fun and unusual fonts. For £0.79 you can upgrade and rub out text, creating a cool pop out effect, especially for action photos.

Creates a spot of texture with coloured lens flares.

InstaSize

BREAD AND BUTTER:

Makes portrait or landscape shots fit in the Instagram square framing.

BIT ON THE SIDE:

A little overbearing for this particular shot, but there are heaps of backgrounds to choose from with plenty of glittery goodness.

VSCO Cam

BREAD AND BUTTER:

It’s a photographer’s secret weapon with nuanced filters and features such as grain and fade.

BIT ON THE SIDE:

Pretty snappy for taking photos too with advanced camera controls.
