Favorite Photo Editing Apps To Achieve that Aesthetic Look

Editing Applications:


The top editing application that I use for my photos is VSCO. I enjoy this app because there is such a variety of tools you can use. It allows you to post your photos on the feed page as well for other people to look at. My favorite filters are AV4 which is what I am using for my photos right now with sometimes increasing the warmth. The other I use are C3 and AV8. I invested in this app to get the most out of it and for my business, but it is not required to get the photos you want! Also, if you want to achieve certain looks you can search on Pinterest to see different ways to edit your photos to achieve a vintage, cool, warm, and other looks.

Canva is an app you can download on your iPhone or you can use it on the computer. It allows you to create different and creative templates, posters, Instagram stories, Instagram posts, and more. It gives a benefit to users by creating free and awesome templates for individuals to either use for their businesses or just for fun. I like to create Instagram story templates on this app. I don’t have a certain favorite, I usually just like to gravitate what looks good for me to use of whatever post I am trying to make.

Inshot is an application I am fairly new to, but I am enjoying it so far. I heard this app by watching Lauren Elizabeth’s video. You can edit videos, photos, and make collages. It comes with presets to use to edit your photos and can go more in-depth with changing the warmth, contrast, etc. to your liking. It provides you with animation stickers to put on your photos which is such a cute idea.


I heard about the Tezza app from fellow influencers Brooke Miccio and Danielle Carolan. Tezza is created by an influencer Tessa Barton for people who want to achieve that aesthetic look for their Instagram. It comes with presets and editing tools. I like this app because it is easy to put a warmer preset on without having to make many changes to it. It is available on the android and iPhone.

Insta Stories

If you’re looking for a great way to make cool looking Instagram stories this is your app. I have been using this app for a while and I love it! It allows me to be creative choosing awesome templates. One thing I like about this is that you can add music to the background of your Insta Stories. It comes with different categories such as Minimal, Business, Art, etc. to pick the right template for your story you are creating.


Lightroom is an app that has different available editing tools to adjust pictures to your liking. It is similar to VSCO, but just different ways to edit your photos. It does come with presets, but it is limited.


Unfold is an app I enjoy using for Instagram stories. It comes with collages, effects, cool fonts, etc. It allows me to be more creative and do different things with my Instagram stories.
