Use Presets for Editing Instagram Images
It’s not a secret that for gaining more followers and creating strong brand awareness, it’s necessary to have a recognizable Instagram aesthetic across both stories and feed. For instance, if you opt for a cool, minimalist and muted approach, you should keep it on all images and videos posted. Agree that editing all pictures one by one requires much time and efforts especially when using a professional photo editor like Photoshop. Fortunately, presets offer an easy and quick way of achieving a cohesive aesthetic on your Insta feed. These are one-click image editing tools that drastically speed up any workflow giving Insta images a professional look. Among the handiest tools are VSCO and Adobe Lightroom CC App.
Use Visual Planners for Grids
Once you have aesthetically pleasant images for your Insta feed, it’s time to think about the right grid format. Ideally, Instagram posts should be planned around two or three weeks in advance. Only this way you’ll be able to picture how your photos will look side by side, as well as on top and below one another when posted. So, the quickest way of planning an Instagram feed in advance and being sure it will always look fresh is using an Instagram Visual Planner. With such a tool, you can upload your edited pictures, generate what your feed will look like and finally schedule them to publish automatically on the feed.
Create a Week’s Worth of Caption in Advance

And the moment you are to post a caption, it will be great to have it ready and stored right in your gadget.

Templates Will Help You Design Stories
