Almost every day I get asked which apps I use to edit my Instagram stories so I thought a full post on this topic would be helpful. Instagram stories have become more than just a raw sneak peak into our everyday lives and more of another way to show our creative side. Apps come in handy when we’re trying to express ourselves digitally and there are a few that I’m constantly using. Whether it’s to showcase a new post that I’ve put up or simply share a review of a product, these apps provide multiple ways to share this with my audience.
My aesthetic is very much minimal, neutral and refined so the apps that I use check off all these boxes, but they also have more edgy and bold options too! Below are my top three apps for editing IG stories.
This is the OG editing app for stories (IMO) and almost everybody knows of this one now. They have multiple styles of stories that you can choose from, from look-alike Polaroids to digital search bars, there’s something for everyone.
What I really love about this app is that you can customize the font, size and colour of text and background. It makes it super easy to personalize what you post.
I recently started using this app and I love it because of the huge variety of templates it has. Most of the StoryLuxe templates look like film reels, Polaroids and other camera-like images but there are also other options like floral backgrounds, neon and plain black and white designs. This app also allows you to choose from a story size downloadable image or an IG size image so you can use this for IG posts as well!
This is another app that I only recently started using but I love it because there are more unique story templates available. My favourite one is the “Adele” template package, however it wasn’t free (just a heads up in case you want it as well). A lot of the template packages on here cost something (less than $5) but come with 10-14 different templates. If you’re looking for more unique templates then this app is definitely a great option, just be prepared to spend a little coin!
If you have any favourite editing apps for IG Stories I would love to hear them! Comment below with your faves 🙂 I hope this post was helpful for those of you searching for good editing apps!
