After our round-up of the Instagram apps for photos to make you a #picoftheday sensation, now we’re looking at how to make your videos on Instagram equally memorable – for free! No amateur filmmaking required, either – some of these apps combine stills to make something more dynamic than a plain old pic. It’s got summer holiday bragging written all over it.
Making a super slick slideshow in seconds. With seamless UX and mood groups with features and filters paired together, Replay will transform stills into a video by panning or zooming over the image. Et voila, check out some BTS B-roll from our Isle of Wight shoot.
The vintage feature is less premium, but still a very quick and easy way to capture a mood.
Layout on steroids, this app lets you combine your own videos and photos, alongside YouTube clips and GIFs. It’s very straightforward to use, with fully adjustable shape combinations, framing and timings. Check out our little example from our shoot with Liz Earle and Laurel.
Could pass as a plain old collage app, but you’d really be missing the point.
Become the puppeteer with this app that literally lets you put words in someone’s mouth. Using different layering, you can let everyone in the pic have their turn, and distort the pitch of their voice for extra lols.
That’s all, folks – but it’s mighty fun.
Making videos into short GIF-like clips, which are then mirrored, collaged, made into a puzzle or put in reverse, like this BTS shot with Accessorize. Some of the whizziest effects are truly sick, in the sense that they make you feel slightly nauseous. Music from your library can also be added for extra personalisation.
You can also add stickers and text, but quite frankly, there’s probably enough going on.
