Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about creating a beautiful, eye catching Instagram. It’s certainly no easy task, and I am far from perfecting it, but I think I’ve come a long way from where my Instagram was even a year ago.

One of the most important aspects of a great Instagram is having a feed that flows well. Both in the content (ie. having a good balance of close up and wide eye photos) and choosing a colour tone or theme for your feed.  When I look at someones Instagram my brain categories into a cool toned or warm toned feed. Personally, I am drawn to cool toned feeds, so that is the tone I try to stick to with my photos.

That’s where this app came in VERY handy.  I can’t tell you how many times I would edit a photo, post it, and immediately know that the colour tone isn’t quite right. Sometimes I would just leave it up but more often than not, the OCD in me would kick in and I would take it down, re-edit the photo and re-upload (annoying, I know). Essentially, this app eliminates those mistake posts that look perfect when you edit them, but when you post it, you realize it doesn’t blend well with the rest of your feed. 

(if your not sure what your Instagram colour tone or theme is, try looking at your phone from a distance, take note of what colours stand out most – blues, greys and off whites are cool tones – yellow, red, browns are warm toned.  See this Instagram HERE for a great example of a cool toned feed)

instagram preview app

The app is called Snug and it’s purpose it to preview your next Instagram post, before you actually post it. All you have to do is load your feed into the app (you don’t have to give your password or anything) and it creates an empty spot next to your last post. You simply click on the blank spot and load any photo you like.

the best apps for instagrammers

Often I will try about 8-10 photos in this app, hold the phone an arms distance away and determine if that photo stands out like a soar thumb or if it flows well with the rest of my feed.  I’ll re-edit the chosen photo as needed and then eventually bring the photo into Instagram. It is such an easy solution for Instagrammers! I wish I had thought of it, haha!

I hope you find this helpful and happy gramming!
