Instagram Stories are only live for 24 hours, but they are a popular tool for many individuals to share and remain connected online. Are you getting the most out of using Stories? Probably not – several tips, methods, and hacks are available to help you make a bigger and better impression using Instagram’s main feature. Here are ten Instagram Story tips to help you improve your IG game.
1. Withhold information from particular persons
You have the option to share a Story with everyone on the planet or just your closest friends when you post one. You do, however, have a second choice: you may keep your Stories a secret from specific individuals. Start a new Story, then click the Settings button in the upper right corner to accomplish this—tap Stories and then Hide Story from the Camera settings screen. Tap Done after adding any contacts who should never view your Stories.
2. Place a picture in the backdrop of a shared post
If you want to get creative, you may place a shared post on top of a separate backdrop image from your camera roll. To begin, tap the post you wish to share, tap the paper plane-shaped Share button and select Add base to your narrative. Tap the Stickers icon, then the Camera Roll sticker. Choose a picture from your camera roll to use as a backdrop.
This is where some finessing is required to make things work. Slide the post and the background picture to opposite sides of the screen, then tap and hold the background image with two fingers. Now, hold the position in place until it snaps in front of the backdrop picture. Adjust and resize the background picture to fill the entire screen and then center the post.
3. Create a soundtrack for your Story
Music may be added to your Story by tapping the Stickers symbol and selecting Music. There are many options in the sizable library. There may be more ways to see the Music when it appears in your Story, depending on the track, such as lyrics, song title, or album information. If you don’t want any of that to appear in your narrative, choose the track title sticker and hold and drag its symbol off screen to remove it from your published Story.
4. Make your emojis stand out
Do you like your emojis to “pop” with more color than usual? The various font styles contain a range of effects. To view, add an emoji to a Story picture. Swipe through the typefaces at the bottom of the image after making sure the text background is on.
5. Create a story using many images
It’s best if you have a lot of pictures! You may add as many images as you wish to a Story by using the paste tool. Who would be so bold as to be in your way?
From your camera roll, pick a picture. To copy a photo, tap the share symbol and then that option. Select paste in the Instagram app after clicking on a text field. Rep to pile on the images.
