When it comes to making videos for social media, unless something extraordinary happens in the video, unedited videos never seem to have the same ‘umph’ as edited ones. And it’s the same with pictures. Just a few seconds of editing on your phone can make a picture that much better before you post it. There are a lot of editing apps for both photos and videos, but these ones really stand out.
When it comes to image editing, you can hardly have a conversation without an Adobe product coming up. We’ve even turned ‘Photoshop’ into a verb. Lightroom is a mobile editor with features that are unbelievable for mobile. You can edit all the normal things like contrast, exposure, and highlights easily. There are also presets that you can just select and apply to your images. The app doesn’t take too long to get used to, and the edits you can make will turn your feed into everyone’s envy.
Canva is not an image editor, it’s a graphic design tool. It really comes in handy when want to get creative with your Instagram stories or even make some fun stills to edit into a video that you’re making. If you post a lot of videos, Canva is also perfect for making video thumbnails.
