Lumyer (iOS, Google Play) is a popular special effects app. The free version will add the sparkles you see in the image below to an imported photo or a photo or video taken within their app (at the time of this post you can’t import videos).

Werble is an iOS-only app that often gets overlooked. But it has a TON of fun animated effects to add to your photos (like Lumyer, you can’t import videos, just photos). It offers a lot of different sizing options for social media.
