So i’ve discovered two new apps which are compatible with Instagram, AKA my most resourceful and favorite platform to use.
I’m slightly addicted.
One is called PicLab and it makes your pictures look more professional by providing framed shapes and light effect and lush typography. My fave type is AMATIC.
So after you have fiddled with these fun filters and framing assets and so on and so forth, you can save it in your gallery and upload straight to your Instagram / Twitter / Facebook. It also does it directly – but I like to write my own tags so I save it to my gallery.
Another app I love is called FontCandy. It takes your pictures and masks over them with beautiful fonts in different colours. You can play with scale and ratios – its an ammeter photographers dream.
I have found that in our world so overloaded with social media and the need to market ourselves in the ‘right’ and ‘design led’ way, these two apps have definitely improved the professional appearance of my Instagram whilst making me addicted in the process.

I have included some hand drawn lettering too.
