Instagram has made it possible for creative individuals to showcase their work in the form of Instagram posts and videos, through a global shareable platform. An average of 95 million photos and videos are uploaded in Instagram each day, and that’s a clear look on how influential the app has become in the social media and online realm.

Editing photos could be done in the app, and while its feature upgrades cater to all kinds of creative approaches, some users might still want to have more editing options. Here are simple ways to create more engaging and unique content for your Instagram that will in turn help you grow your following and maintain a more consistent, aesthetic appeal.

Create Similar Themes And Add Lighting Using Photo Filters

Instagram has a decent selection of available filters, but it could, at times, be very limiting. Downloading an editing app that specializes in photo filters is a good solution to expand your choices, and Instasize is the best filters option in the market.

The filters have a wide range of artistic touches: from light and luminous, to dark and edgy. You can adjust the intensity of the shadows, hue, saturation, contrast, and even tweak the grains and vignette to create visually appealing Instagram posts.

By selecting similar tinted filters, you can create a theme for your profile that looks like each photo was well-curated. Your Instagram posts will definitely look like they came from a professional photo editor.
