5 Apps to Edit Your Instagram Photos

5 Apps to Edit Your Instagram Photos

Instagram is becoming more and more a crucial components of my social media strategy for my lifestyle and beauty blog, Like, Wutever. I’ve started to increase my postings and I’ve also started to pay a great deal of attention to the quality of photos I upload. As such, friends and co-workers are always asking me about the filters and photo apps that I use for my Instagram.

Here are the apps I use and those I consider to be the best 5 apps to edit your Instagram photos!


Perhaps it is accurate to say that VSCO cam holds the premium position by way of photo editing apps. The community continues to grow its’ user base daily and the hashtag #vscocam has been used more than 99 million times. Its super easy to use and does all the hard work for you. My personal favourite is the T1 filter, but there are many others to choose from.


This app has an incredibly important feature which allows you to edit parts of the photo that require colour correction, instead of changing the entire photo. It is incredibly effective for iphoneography enthusiasts, and best of all its free!

CAMERA+ – $1.99

If you’re serious about using your iPhone or other smart phone device as a camera replacement, be sure to download the camera+ app. This app lets you do things with your camera that aren’t possible with the built-in software. Inside the app you can control the ISO, shutter speed, white balance and more.

MEXTURES – $1.99

Mextures is your go-to for colour popping, fun filters and dramatic effects to your photos. Created by Merek Davis, this app is a small price to pay for great photos in your Instagram feed.


If you’re taking lots of landscape photos or photos that look better in horizontal or vertical instead of the 1:1 Instagram square, this app is your friend. It will allow you to keep the dimensions of your photo while placing a white (or other) background for the remainder of the square.
