How To Post A Photo To Instagram
To begin, I opened Instagram on my mobile phone and also right here's what I saw:
It's a little bit complex, yet the switch on the bottom that's highlighted in blue? That's not the existing sight you have, even though that's absolutely a typical interface convention. You're on the main feed which is accessed by the home button on the lower left. Weird, I know.
Faucet on the camera symbol on the bottom-- center!-- with heaven highlight. Now your camera will certainly trigger and also you'll see a sneak peek of the picture you will take:
To take a picture, tap on the blue button. Making a (brief) video clip, faucet on the video camera icon to the right of the switch.
