    I have Android phones and I use “Square InstaPic” app to upload pics to IG after editing with other apps.

    I am loving Phonto right now. You can easily edit photos, add text and create fun backgrounds. It is almost like having a free Photoshop that you can take anywhere with your phone. It is my go-to!

    Definitely love the app VSCO! It lets me edit everything exactly how I want to. Unfortunately, my iPhone is somewhere floating in a portapotty… so I have sadly switched to Android haha but having ALL the editing apps definitely helps with Android quality haha

      Hey VSCO sister! It is my favorite. Sorry about your phone but glad you’re making due in the meantime!

    Oooh love these tips. I just came over to an IPhone from a Galaxy so I get to discover the magic of IG photography on a new level all over again. There’s DEF a difference between android and iPhone in terms of photography and IG. I’ve tried VSCO and Afterlight, but my fav non IG photo app is Snapseed. I absolutely love it. Also I just discovered AColorStory app and I having fun with that as well. I agree 100% with you about natural light. Also I find as a viewer and blogger the most pleasing feeds have images that are really consistent with the same edits. Generally the brightness, highlights, contrast, and shadows are pretty much the same in all the photos. It tells a story of sorts. I also love
