9 Apps to Try This Weekend for Editing Photo & Video Content

Updated: Jan 16, 2022

Creating content for social media can be confusing and overwhelming. Fortunately, I've found a few apps that I reuse constantly to edit video and photos for social media. I'm going to break down a few for you to help make creating content A LOT easier!

#1 Instasize

This app is super helpful if your photo doesn't fit completely in an Instagram post. It also works really well when you're needing to add white space around the picture so that it fits better. For example, occasionally I'll find a great quote on Twitter and want to reshare that on my own page. If I take a screenshot and crop it, it won't be a perfect square, so I upload the screenshot to Instasize and I'm able to pinch the picture to make it smaller, and it automatically adds the white space around it. Example below:

*Bonus Tip: This is how people repost their own quotes from Twitter over on other social media platforms. Post a quote as yourself on your Twitter feed, then screenshot and upload to Instasize to further build your brand over on another social media platform!

#2 Lightroom

This has to be one of my all time favorites. I love creating a cohesive style with my Instagram posts and this app makes that possible. This app allows you to import professional editing presets. If you're wondering what a "preset" is, "A Lightroom preset is a configuration of settings, designed to achieve a certain look or style of your photo." Once you find the preset that you like best, you can upload that preset to lightroom, then copy the settings of the preset and then paste those settings on your own photos and BAM, you've got a professionally edited photo in the color scheme you love. Below is a preview of before adding a preset and after.
