How To Post Photo On Instagram
To begin, I opened up Instagram on my mobile phone as well as here's just what I saw:
It's a bit confusing, but the switch under that's highlighted in blue? That's not the current view you have, although that's certainly a common user interface convention. You're on the primary feed which is accessed by the home button on the reduced left. Unusual, I know.
Tap on the camera icon on the bottom-- center!-- with the blue highlight. Now your camera will certainly activate and you'll see a sneak peek of the image you're about to take:
To take an image, tap on the blue button. Making a (brief) video, faucet on the video camera symbol to the right of the button. Tap on the left switch and you could access your existing photos on the phone (exactly what I normally utilize, using the regular phone camera app for taking the picture).

Next up, I'll modify the Comparison since I find that on my iPhone, a minimum of, it's constantly simply a little bit less than I choose:
Once more, utilize your finger to change it with the slider, as well as faucet on the check mark to commit the change or the "X" to discard it if you change your mind.

If there are well-known people in the pictures that are additionally on Instagram, faucet "Tag People" and also determine them. If you want your location determined on a map when the picture is posted-- don't do this if you're home!!-- after that leave the slider on "Add to Photo Map" enabled, as I have. You can additionally determine details areas by touching on "Name This Location" as well as scrolling via the listing to locate the dining establishment, bar, show place, auditorium or other area.
