Helpful Instagram Tools + Bonus Video Tip!

Thought I’d share a list of some of the tools I regularly use for Insta that may help people. Hope some of you find these useful :slight_smile:

RD Client (IOS): For anyone running JV on a VPS, you can use this app to access everything from your mobile. Been an absolute god-send! Highly recommended!

Flume (Mac): Desktop Instagram app that allows you to upload pics and videos as well as use instagram generally. Super useful!

Preview (IOS): Perfect app for arranging your timeline.

Repost (IOS): Super easy insta reposter for pics and videos

Ninjalytics: Really good free insta stats website. Best thing is you can create lists so you can keep all your client / personal accounts in these for quick access.

VSCO (IOS): Great mobile image editor that I use constantly.

Photoshop Fix (IOS): I mainly use this for the Defocus tool to give your mobile shots an even better Depth Of Field feel.

Instagram++: This is basically a cracked version of Insta that allows you to repost direct from within the app, save photos, videos to your device and loads of other useful features. To install this I tend to use Appvalley but you can also download the IPA file and use Impactor to install straight onto your device (Appvalley can sometimes add additional advertising to it)

Totally Free Use Images: Pixabay, Unsplash

And finally, a helpful tip for people that use a lot of video on Insta…

If you want a custom photo to be the thumbnail for your 1 minute uploads, just include it as the first frame of your video and you can then select that to be the thumbnail. Easy stuff and keeps your grid looking awesome :slight_smile:

Yeah it’s pretty good although I sometimes have to reinstall it as it stops working. If you are reposting a lot or wanting to save images and video it’s really handy
