Whether you are planning on using the platform for personal or business uses, Instagram is a fantastic way to be creative and engage with people.
So, if you’ve been wondering about how you can post pictures on Instagram, you’ve come to the right place. Keep reading for a complete guide on how to become an expert at posting on this popular social media platform.
Post Pictures on Instagram Through the App
Once you figure out which picture you want to post, open the Instagram app and tap on the + sign located on the top right corner of the screen.
Doing this will result in one of two ways:
- The app will immediately show your image library (you have to grant the app access to your phone library).
- A drop-down menu will give you the option of making a post, story, reel, or live broadcast.
If you get the drop-down menu, tap on “post.” Once you do that, your photo library will appear.
When your photo library appears, pick the photo (or photos) you want to post. If you’d like to pick more than one photo, tap on the square located on the bottom right corner below the enlarged picture. This will allow you to pick up to 10 images to add to the photo carousel post.
Once you’ve selected the content you want to share, tap “next.” During this step, you will have the opportunity to edit your photo. This will allow you to add a filter, adjust light levels, etc. to the photo or photos you’ve chosen to post.
Once your picture is edited and ready to go, tap “Next” again. This time, you will be prompted to type out a caption and add a location. When that’s done, all there is left to do is tap on the “Share” button found on the top right corner of the app.
If you prefer not to edit your pictures within the app, you can always use an external site to edit before posting on Instagram. In addition, you can play around with an Instagram post maker to make unique content that your followers will love. The best part about Instagram is that you can be as creative as you want, so take advantage of it and have fun with your posts!
