I’m a visual person so naturally my favorite social media channel is Instagram. As a social media manager I’ve picked up a few tricks of the trade when it comes to capturing and editing photos and videos for Instgram so I have compiled a few of my favorite apps. P.S. – All of these are free!


Hyperlapse is a relatively new video app that creates time-lapse videos that are shareable to Facebook and Instagram. No video editing skills necessary. Click here to watch this video.


Camera and photo editing app that is user friendly and makes editing a snap.

Other photo editing apps I like to use: Snapseed and Filterstorm


Free collage maker that is formatted to fit Instagram.


Add text to a photo and share. There are several fonts to choose from and colors for free.


Make any photo the right size for Instagram.

Happy snapping!
