Photo editing
The key to compelling and engaging content that boosts your brand? Good photos! While things like angles, composition and a quality camera (these days, most iPhones do the trick!) definitely play into this, editing apps like A Color Story, VSCO, Lightroom add that extra oomph to your images. Filters, color adjustments and Lightroom presets can also help your content keep a cohesive and professional look. For Instagram Stories, apps like Unfold and OVER are great for giving your posts a clean, high-quality aesthetic.
