The Adobe app is one of the solutions widely used by digital influencers to make photos even more beautiful before posting on Instagram. In addition to offering filters, Lightroom allows you to make customized color adjustments, change sharpness, contrast and noise, apply effects such as drawing, grainy or vignette, among many other options. It is also possible to choose the lens profile correction from the preferred brand and model, for example, Nikon, Canon, Apple and Samsung, as well as the sports GoPro and DJI.

Another interesting feature of Lightroom is presets, which are widely used by bloggers. The feature allows you to save changes made as a kind of filter and apply them to any other photo without having to repeat the step by step. On the Internet there are a number of preconfigured editions available for download, which can be inserted into the app as a common photo, then copy the settings and paste in the new image.
VSCO is a mix of image editor with social network widely used by celebrities because of its effects, which gives the photos a cooler look. The application offers some free filters and more than 100 paid options, through an annual subscription in the amount of R $ 64.99. The secret of celebrities is the combination of layers with editions of exposure, contrast, sharpness, saturation, among other settings. As with Lightroom, the user can save up to 10 presets in the free version, here called "recipes", to facilitate changes in future files.

One of the first apps of its kind was Facetune, used by celebrities in the virtual world to make photos perfect. One of the most popular effects allows you to touch up the body, remove fat or increase breasts and hips. Interestingly, the program became better known due to the errors of media personalities that, unintentionally, distorted the background like walls, furniture or the sea.

Among the features that make it possible to improve the photos are teeth whitening, red-eye adjustment, blurring, removal of marks and signs of the skin, among other tools. The application also provides a series of filters, according to the type of paper, brightness, texture or lens. In this way, the service stands out for its multifunctionality, capable of adapting to different situations.
Snapseed is a Google image editing solution that, in addition to the usual filters, features a series of ideal tools that give the photo a professional style. Among the almost thirty items, there are options such as white balance, change of perspective with application of smart background, color adjustments, brightness, saturation and others. The application also allows you to superimpose images in a subtle and professional manner and reproduce the effect bokeh, with the background blurred, through the "Focus" function that includes the possibility to define the degree of blur.

There is also a tool called Head Pos that guarantees a smile on your face in any photo and increases the size of your pupils. The main differential of this software is the possibility to edit practically all the resources offered, leaving them according to the preference of those who use it.
Despite offering image editing features, UNUM's main feature is the organization of the Instagram feed. When linking your account on the network, the tool allows you to view the position of the future photo in the feed and know if it compares well with the images already published. Another application is in visualizing the mosaic effect, obtained by dividing an image into parts and posting them as a photograph, individually.

The service also displays indicators about your posts, such as the most liked posts, the best times to publish with the most appropriate day and time and the hashtags with the highest average of comments and likes already used. A native resource enables the creation of reminders for publications, such as, for example, in the times defined as those with the greatest engagement of followers.
