Instagram is one of the fastest growing and most popular social media platforms, and it is becoming more and more common to include this network in business marketing plans. Since Instagram requires an image or video with every post, it is essential that the user is captivated by an interesting and eye-catching visual.
To make things easier and more efficient for Instagram users, there are three add-on apps that make this process simple and interesting:
- Boomerang creates fun GIFs (a short looping video) in just a few seconds by pasting together a group of photos and speeding up the frames. This creates a GIF that utilizes movement to goes beyond a standard still image or regular video.
- Layout is an Instagram app that allows the user to edit and arrange up to nine photos into one stunning image. Different layout arrangements allow for some unique and interesting effects with your images that will stand out in a user’s Instagram feed.
- Hyperlapse is a time-lapse app that smooths out and shortens longer footage to be used as shorter Instagram video. The app allows you to record longer video and then speeds it up – the default speed is 6X but you can choose 1X, 2X, 4X, 6X, 8X, 10X, and 12X. Hyperlapse instantly stabilizes your video as it speeds it up, providing a very professional final product.
