“ Did you see my story on Instagram?” ”,” His stories are so funny on Instagram! »… Who has never heard such phrases, whether in their entourage or in public transport. By force, everyone now knows what a story is, but not everyone necessarily knows how it works. In this tutorial, we will see how to make a story on Instagram.
But before that, let’s try to deliver a precise definition of a story on Instagram.
What is Instagram Story?
Here is the definition we propose: a story is content (photo or video) – or a series of content – that is published on Instagram and which is automatically deleted after 24 hours. In addition to this ephemeral aspect, a story does not “pollute” the news feed of your followers. It is therefore more intended to share moments of life than really worked images. The stories can be customized with text, stickers , emoji, or filters.
HOW TO MAKE A STORY ON INSTAGRAM?
When you’re on Instagram , all you need to do is click on the app’s logo in the shape of a camera. The icon is located at the top left of your screen. This action gives you access to the interface dedicated to creating a story . Serious things can begin.
First of all, know that the button illustrated by two rotating arrows, at the top of the screen, is used to switch between the front and rear camera of your smartphone. Also at the top of the interface, the smiley-shaped button opens the gallery of available filters that you can consult before or after taking a picture.
We are almost there ! At the bottom of the screen, a carousel allows you to explore the different shooting modes available (Boomerang, superzoom, portrait…), to launch a live video or simply to write text on a colored background. For the purposes of this tutorial, we will focus on “Normal” mode.
Finally, you will see a circle towards the bottom of the interface. Short press it to take a photo and reserve your best long press for the times when you want to record a video.
Once you’ve taken your photo or video and are happy with it, all you have to do is customize it (obviously not mandatory). As we said, the smiley at the top of the screen allows you to choose the filter. But you can also add a sticker or an emoji using the sticker-shaped button, draw a word or drawing by hand using the pen or even type text over the image by pressing the “Aa” button.
Once this step is completed, all you have to do is send your story by pressing the dedicated button at the bottom left, underlined by the explicit inscription “Your story”. You can also share the content with your close friends (it’s a contact list that you can set up on Instagram) or hit the “Send to” key to choose a specific recipient.
Then to add photos or videos to your story , you just have to start this tutorial from the beginning.
