Apps That Produce Exceptional Photos and Videos

by | Jul 30, 2022 | Tool and Apps

All this month we have talked about DIY social media. To create great graphics and videos on your phone you must have apps that help you succeed. Successful content is truly all about how you create your content. 




If you are not familiar with Canva, it is the best of the best for graphic design. It is easy to use and has endless options. The Canva one year ago is completely different from the Canva today. They are constantly adding content and features to remain the best app for social media. You can create posts for any social media sign, design a logo, make infographics, and much more. If you are not familiar with Canva, experiment with it. The professional version is only $12.99 per month and is worth the cost in our professional opinion. 




VLLO is only $2.49 per month. It is super affordable and even has a free trial option. It is a video editing tool that allows you to be more creative and edit videos faster. Some of the features include clipping videos, voiceovers, and music add-ins. 


GoDaddy Studio (formerly Over)


GoDaddy Studio used to be called over. It is a free app as long as you have a GoDaddy account. It allows you to make pretty quick edits on the fly. It is very easy to use. It can be used for both graphics and videos. It does everything in layers. If you like a look but hate the text, you can change one element. They have a ton of templates to choose from. 



Retouch allows you to remove blemishes, dust specks, and objects from backgrounds. If you have a beautiful beach picture but there are people in the water, you can remove them from your photo. It is quick and easy to use. It is completely free to use. 




Mojo has a free version or a $10 per month version. It has hundreds of animated templates. You can see what works for you and make edits before you release a final product. Our team frequently works on this app. 


Photo Collage Collegable


This app is exactly what it sounds like it would be. It is a collage app where you can turn a lot of pictures into one graphic image. It is $3.99 per month and it is specifically meant for collage. 


Lightroom FREE

Lightroom has a free version that is part of the adobe family. It allows you to do photo editing. You can use this to fix lighting and add filters to your photos. 




Tiksave is great for removing watermarks and adding graphics to video content. It only costs $4.99 per month and it is a lifesaver for transforming your TikToks into reels. If you leave a TikTok watermark on a video and post it to Instagram Reels you will not get any views. TikSave saves you from this problem. 


Giphy FREE


Giphy allows you to create and upload your gifs. You can make them and save them within the app. They also have a large library of gifs that you can search for. It is one of the fastest ways to find the gifs you are looking for. We often use it to cover watermarks on our videos. It is easy to use and free!



Facetime is an old app but it is reliable. It is only $7.99 per month and it allows you to edit your face if you need to. We are all about transparency and showing your real self, but we understand that you might want to make small changes sometimes. 


What are our favorites? 

Our team favorites are Canva, GoDaddy Studios, Giphy, and TikSave. Overall we love Canva more than any other app. We recommend that you play with these apps and see what works for you. The more apps you use, the easier it will be to produce exceptional content!
