Queen Bey has been slaying her Instagram posts lately with short gif style videos, and the internet is going crazy over them! But how does she do it? I’m sure she has a digital team on hand and foot ready and waiting to put them together for her, but thankfully it wont be that difficult to dupe her style. Here are 3 apps you can use to create the SLAYONCE Instagram posts we all obsess over.
From the makers of PHHHOTTO (which, according to some of the Hive’s most dedicated fans was the actual app Beyonce used to make her videos back in 2015) comes HYPNO, an app that allows you to film and edit videos and photos, then swipe to add real music video clips and music interspersed between your original content.
2. Apple Clips
While it’s not as cool and high-tech as HYPNO, Apple Clips gets the job done. Think of this basically as Snapchat-meets-Photo Booth for your iPhone. Apple Clips allows you to insert text and emojis onto your photos and videos and place premade backgrounds behind them. Still no word yet on when the glitter background a-la Bey is coming, though.
3. DSCO by VSCO
If you’re an Insta-fiend, then you know the cult-following VSCO has amassed. Use DSCO the same way, only create gifs out of videos instead. DSCO has all the same great filters and amenities of VSCO, including the ability to manage presets, which is pretty cool if you’re looking to enhance that highlight on fleek.
