If you’re anything like us, you just love Instagram Stories! It’s such a fun and casual way to interact and connect with your followers and clients. We’ve written an article or two about this great feature already, but today we’re going to let you in on 4 Instagram Story hacks that will take your content to the next level.
- Customize your text color: We’re sure that you know how to chose from the standard colors available for your text, but did you know that if you hold down on a specific color, an entire spectrum becomes available? And if you want to be even more snazzy, use the color dropper on the far left hand side – this allows you to select any color from your image for your text, a great way to match the text to your branding.
- Create a solid background: Every now and again you just want a simple background for your Instagram Story and not an image, this is actually so simple to do. Simply swipe up like you usually would and select an image (any image will work perfectly). Select the draw tool and then choose the color that you want your background to be. All you need to do now is tap
and hold and you will see that a solid background in your chosen color will appear.
- Only reveal a small section of your image: Create a little bit of mystery by only revealing a certain amount of your image. Just like you did in the tip before, swipe up but this time select the specific image that you want to use. Use the draw tool and the color that you prefer to create a solid background over this. Now you can use the eraser tool to remove the solid background in the select places that you would like to.
- Create a shadow effect with text: Jazzing up your text on Instagram Stories is always great, and creating a shadow effect is pretty darn simple once you know how. Create the text that you want in black or white. Then all you need to do is copy and paste that text in a different color and drag it over the black or white text until you have the shadow effect that you’re after.
