The App that will Change your Instagram Life

For the past few months, I've been trying to step up my Instagram game. Not in an over the top way, but every so subtly. So what does that mean? First, I've made a conscious effort to only post pictures of quality. I also have vowed to take my time to edit them so that they follow my aesthetic (who knew I needed one of those?). If a picture gets onto my feed, and I don't like the way it looks, I delete it. If I didn't do anything Instagram worthy that day, I don't post anything. It's that simple.

It took me a while to realize that having an Instagram aesthetic was almost as important as having a beautiful blog design. Posting pictures that represent you and your brand (I still laugh at myself for even thinking that I am a brand, but let's roll with it), is an integral part of forming your online identity and for showing strategic partners that you're serious about your blog as a business. 

But you know all of that. What you don't know is the app that is going to change your Instagram feed forever. Ready for this? Stop what you're doing and download Photoshop Express. This free app is a teeny tiny, easy to use Photoshop for your phone. You can do a lot of little photo edits right from your device, but the number one thing that has freshened my account is brightening my images. Let's look at an example. Last week, I posted about my current favorite beauty products the other day. 

Here's the before:

And the after:

See how much brighter the image is? Two taps of my finger and that happened, y'all. So much prettier, so much brighter, so much better! Do you have any Instagram success secrets? Share them with me in the comments!
