I used to create all my videos on Windows Movie Maker and edit all my pictures on Photoshop. I felt like a dinosaur.
Now I do most things directly from my phone and it’s awesome and super easy. Create amazing content for your Instagram and Blog in no time and for free! Check my 6 favorite apps:
Make vídeos on your phone, add music, filters and crop! The free version has a watermark but works pretty well
Keep the colors of your feed consistent by using always the same filters. This app makes magic with my pictures
Add frames for your images and give your feed some air. It makes anything looks pretty! I use everyday!
Test how your wallpapers will work on phones or iPads, create mockups easily!
Organize everything, book posting times, share plans with a team and access from your computer (if you need)
Cut out photos, add text, create animations, add stickers and more. The free version has a watermark but it’s still pretty cool and easy to use
Bonus: Procreate Pocket
If you like to doodle and sketch on your mobile, for U$ 4.99 you can have Procreate Pocket on your phone. For me it’s Photoshop in my hands. I use for everything, for color studies, quick sketches and to retouch pictures.
I love practical things! How about you, what is your favorite app?
Many people start social media accounts and have no idea how to organize their posts or how to create a consistent presentation. Social media is everywhere and we are naturally attracted by high quality images and good quality content. In the last 5 years I improved the quality of my Instagram feed and I would like to share my tips.
All creators can benefit from a beautiful and organized feed. If you don’t know where to start, here are my tips.
1. Give a nice presentation
It can be the most beautiful drawing in the world, if your picture is dark, blurred and missing details, nobody will notice you.
2. Learn to use colors
Images in black and white are captivating but colors transmit emotions. If you don’t want to add color to your artworks, at least use colorful frames from time to time.
3. Try different techniques
Experimenting something new will boost your creativity and improve the quality of your work
4. Use your imagination
Copying other works and drawing from observation are important tools for learning but creating something new and showing your own vision of the world is what really makes your work pop
5. Give some air
Too many pictures in the same style can get a bit tiring. Alternate the way you show your creations, zoom on details, show your work space and make things more attractive.
Bonus: Show your face
People love to see who you are! From time to time show your face, your process and your opinions. Make it personal and really connect with people. It’s a social media space, not just a portfolio, so be social.
