    Iniziamo questa disamina for sale how do you put effects on instagram and, in this case, in the post to be published in the feed of the photographic social network. I already anticipate that it is possible to do this by taking advantage of some features present "standard" on Instagram and some third-party apps.



    Effects of Instagram

    - Instagram default effects are the first solution that I recommend you try to edit "on the fly" the shots you intend to publish on the photographic social network. To use it, start the Instagram app on your Android device or iPhone, log in to your account (if necessary), tap the button capacitor positive (+) lead at the bottom center and select the photo you want to publish, or take it "on the fly" by selecting the item Gallery.

    Then tap on the item NEXT at the top right and, in the screen that opens, select one of the Instagram filters from those available (eg. Clarendon, Gingham, Moon, etc.). If you want, you can also act on the various parameters of the photo: just select the option Modification located at the bottom right, choose the parameter to be modified (eg. Brightness, Contrast, Structure, etc.) and adjust it by moving the cursor that appears on the screen.

    After doing this, tap on the item NEXT located at the top right and, after writing the post caption, click on the item Share, located at the top right, to publish the content



    As for the Instagram application for Windows 10, know that at the time of writing it does not allow you to apply filters in posts, since it does not even allow you to publish them.

    App to put effects on Instagram

    As I told you, it is possible to add effects to photos to be published on Instagram also using third-party app. Clearly, the shots must first be modified with the latter and then be published.

    Snapseed (Android / iOS)


    The first app that I recommend you to try to apply effects to photos to upload to Instagram is Snapseed: it is a very famous free photo editing application, developed by Google, which is available for Android and iOS and which allows you to apply various effects and presets to your shots.

    After installing and starting Snapseed on your device, tap anywhere on its main screen, select the photo you want to edit and apply one of the many filters available in the section Effects. If you want, you can also tap the button Instruments (located at the bottom) and select, from the menu that opens, one of the tools to manually act on the various image parameters.

    When you are satisfied with the result, tap on the item Export located at the bottom right and, from the menu that opens, select the items Share> Instagram, so as to share the photo you have retouched on the photo social network.

    VSCO (Android/iOS)

    Also VSCO is an app that can be useful for you to apply effects to photos to publish on Instagram, since it allows you to retouch your shots both by applying ready-to-use presets to them and by acting on the various parameters. I point out that the app is basically free, although it is possible to subscribe to VSCO X starting at $ 19,99 / year and take advantage of extra filters and advanced features.



    After installing and running VSCO on your Android or iOS device, tap the button Register with your email address or on the button Register with your phone number and create your free account by following the instructions that appear on the screen.

    Once logged in, click on the icon square located in the lower center, press the button capacitor positive (+) lead located at the top right and, in the new screen that opens, tap on the image you want to retouch. Then select the item Import located at the bottom, tap on the icon of adjustment bars located at the bottom left and apply one of the many presets among those available, or press the symbol with the adjustment bars to manually act on the various parameters.

    When finished, tap on the item Save located at the top, then on the symbol (...) located at the bottom, select the item Share and tap on the item Instagram, so as to share the photo you have edited directly on the photo social network.

    How to put effects on Instagram Stories

    want put effects on content posted in Instagram Stories? Nothing simpler! To do this, start the Instagram app on your Android or iPhone device, log into your account (if necessary), press the icon of camera located at the top left of its main screen and create the photo or video to be published, using the appropriate shutter / record button. Alternatively, tap on miniature located at the bottom left to import content from the Gallery.


    At this point, to apply the effects "on the fly", all you have to do is swipe from right to left (or vice versa) and use the one you like best. To add facial filters, instead, click on the symbol of smiling faccia at the top right and select the one you like best from the menu that appears below. I point out that you can also apply facial filters in "real time", while taking the photo from the Instagram app (in this case, the icon of the smiling faccia is located near the shutter / record button).


    When you have finished editing the content of your Story, click on the button The tua storia, so as to publish it on your Instagram account. Easier than that?

    How to put sound effects on Instagram


    Do you want to put sound effects on Instagram? Well, you can use the tool to do that Super Zoom of the photographic social network, which allows you to apply a short musical effect to videos made at the moment.

    To use it, log in to Instagram via the official app for Android or iPhone, tap on the symbol of camera placed at the top left of its main screen and then presses on the wording Super Zoom located at the bottom. Then tap on the icons that represent each sound effect (eg. Spring, Beat, Fire, Hearts, etc.), start recording the short movie by pressing the record button located at the bottom center and then publish the content you have created, by tapping the button The tua storia. Semplice, see?

    I also point out that Instagram integrates a feature thanks to which it is possible to put the songs in the Stories, as I showed you in this other guide of mine.

    How to put new effects on Instagram

    Have you noticed that some of your friends have new effects on Instagram and would you like to know how to receive them? Updating the photo social network app is the only way to do this, although sometimes some features are released progressively and are not immediately available to all users. To update the Instagram app, do the following.

    • Your Android - open the Play Store, fai tap sul pulsating (≡) situato in alto a sinistra, selects the voice Le mie app ei miei giochi from the bar that appears on the left and, if new updates are available for Instagram, press the button Update placed in correspondence with its icon.
    • Your iPhone - open theApp Store, tap on the tab Updates located at the bottom right and, if updates are available for Instagram, tap the button Update placed in correspondence with its icon.
    • On Windows 10 - open the Microsoft Store, click on the button depicting the three dots at the top right, select the item Downloads and updates and check if new updates are available for Instagram by clicking on the button Check the updates.

    For more information on how to update Instagram, do not hesitate to read the guide that I linked to you, because surely this reading will also be useful for you.

    In case of problems

    For some users who use Instagram on Android, it may happen that they have problems with the application of effects on Instagram. For some, for example, it happened not to be able to apply filters because for some reason the smiley face icon that would have made the operation possible was not displayed.

    If you encounter this kind of problems, I suggest you free up space on the internal memory, delete potentially harmful apps (eg. Clean Master), restart the device and possibly reinstall Instagram. In case you are not able to solve these problems using the solutions I just suggested, try to contact Instagram to try to report it.
