Instagram is famous for its breathtaking images, beautifully curated content and crafted galleries, but how can you make it your own?

Once you’ve found your “visual recipe” and happy that the look and feel represent your brand – consistency becomes the most important thing. Consistency is how you continue to stay top of mind, and when your imagery (or stories!) appear in someone else’s newsfeed, they’ll know instantly that it’s you!

Can’t work out what your visual style is?

It’s time to push up your sleeves and think of Plann’s 60+ filters as a giant playground and get started.

Editing Your Photos Has Never Been Easier

One of the best things about Plann is that it allows you to import media from your device, camera, dropbox and google drive.

Psst… You can also export images into Plann from other apps while ‘SHARING TO PLANN’.

Inside the app there are a HEAP of filters you can choose from, we’ve made sure there’s a great selection for you to be able to create your perfect brand aesthetic.
Make it as simple or as complicated as you want. (Have you heard about people who use two filters over ALL of their images? Now that’s commitment!)

 

 

Grab Plann, play with image brightness, contrast, saturation, hues and shadows, as well as adding filter effects to see what you like.

For best results, try importing in 6 or so photos that represent a chunk of your story and edit them all at once, see how they all look together and decide if you’d be happy with this theme representing your brand online – because once you have a colour scheme in one place, brand consistency means you’ll want to put that same colour scheme everywhere.

Tip: I highly recommend that you spend a little while playing with the options and seeing what you like the most.

If you want a quick summary and to shortcut a bit of experimentation – I’d love to show you what’s possible for your updated Instagram gallery!
