Ever wondered what apps other people use for their social media posts? Ever noticed the
photos in a feed and thought to yourself, "how do they create that?"
We know we have, but through hundreds of photo designs, we've come up with our personal fave's. Not just to use as a stand-alone app, but we use many apps to piggy back on one another to create the perfect look we're going for.
It's not easy to say one is our favorite over another. The reason being is that each app provides a certain feature we need or gives a certain look we're going for.
Here's our top 3 favorite apps and why:
We love Photofy due to how robust it is. It's a free app with upgraded Pro feature for those with a business need more premium features, branding gallery and multiple users. But the free version is plenty for most people as it doesn't skimp on it's freebies.
It gives access to amazing backgrounds, predesigned artwork, customizing art features, text, frames, stickers, you name it. We love the Pro features of easy access to our many logos we use for our programs.
💖 #GlamGirlBoss Tip: For any brand (including yourself), pay the money to remove their watermark so that your brand stands.
We love Typorama because #1, it's FUN, (but watch your time...it can be easy to lose track of it playing with it) #2, it's a TIME SAVER, yes...it's a conundrum. Choose from a variety of backgrounds provided or use your own. Type in your words or use the "Random Quote" feature. No matter what you choose, just hit the different Text Style and watch your text transform.
Typorama is a free app and although not as robust as Photofy, it makes easy work for those who possibly consider themselves creatively challenged or just short on time. From filters, to overlays, shadowing, gradients, and 3D texts features, this is one of our consistent go-to apps.
💖 #GlamGirlBoss Tip: Utilize the Watermark feature by keeping a transparent PNG logo on your phone...OR save it and open it in Photofy to add your logo there.
We love this free app, and stays put in our arsenal because let's face it, a girl isn't ALWAYS
ready for her close-up, yet is growing a business and a brand and wants to eliminate zero excuses for showing up to her audience. Insert the no-excuses app, Instabeauty.
Apply filters to soften lines or help with lightening up photos with poor lighting. No makeup on? No problem! Easily apply makeup to a bare face or enhance what you have. We're not trying to fake anyone out, but we don't necessarily want breakouts to ruin a good photo opp either.
💖 #GlamGirlBoss Tip: We believe in putting our best foot forward. Being real yes, but also representing our brand and remembering that we are the brand...YOU are your brand. So be true to who you are, but make sure you are connecting the dots of yourself and your branding image.
This only covers a few of our apps and why we love them, and we're not restricted to using only phone apps, but websites as well to help us create branding, photos, eBooks, logos and more.
