How to share on Instagram
Wondering how exactly you go about posting a photo on Instagram?
Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you!
Step 1 – Take a photo
Before even thinking about posting on Instagram, you need to have a photo to upload.
So, go ahead and snap a shot with your cell phone.
Step 2 – Open Instagram and hit the + button
Open the Instagram app on your cell phone and locate the ‘+’ button.
The ‘+’ signals that you want to add content to your Instagram feed.
Below is a screenshot of my cellphone with the ‘+’ button located at the bottom of the screen. Yours might appear at the top of the screen (in the center, left or right) depending on the type of phone you have.
Step 3 – Select photo
Once you’ve clicked the ‘+’ button, a new window will open and you’ll have the chance to select a photo to upload from your camera roll.
Select the photo you want to share and click next at the bottom of the screen.
Step 4 – Edit your photo (optional)
The next step will give you the chance to edit your photo. If you feel the lighting is off, you can play around with the settings to see if you can correct that. A little goes a long way!
Step 5 – Add a caption
With your photo added and edited (or not) the final screen is where you add a caption.
This part is important as what you enter in the description will help us locate your photo.
In the caption area, be sure to include the #30DaysofImprovQAL hashtag along with @broadclothstudio and @shannonfraserdesigns so that both Amanda and I can see your progress and encourage you along the way. Plus, by adding the custom hashtag, anyone who’s participating in the quilt along will be able to see your post too. That’s where the real fun is – seeing one another’s interpretations of the daily prompts 😉
If you’re participating in the weekly giveaway, this is also where you’ll tag the sponsor.
Step 6 – Post
Once you’re happy with your photo and caption, all that’s left to do is hit share and your photo will get posted to your feed.
That’s it! That’s all there’s to posting on Instagram.
