Widely known for its many editing options, VSCO stands true as a huge helping hand when your photos are in need of a boost. Whether you are looking to add bright colors for a warm and summery vibe, or darker tones for a more mellow and dark academia look, VSCO will make your visions come true. The app offers a wide variety of filters as well as the options of adding shadow tints, grain, and even fixing the appearance of your skin tone for those photos with underwhelming lighting. VSCO is also a great editing app to use if you have an overall theme for your instagram feed, as it will keep your photos cohesive and precisely designed. VSCO is free but offers 130 exclusive filters and so much more for $19.99 a year.

Adobe Lightroom Photo Editor

All photos used in Adobe are also automatically saved into your cloud, so no edits will be lost and you can go back to any photo whenever you'd like. Adobe Lightroom offers a free trial, but then costs $9.99 a month for premium features and further use.
