How to post pictures on Instagram? Why would you want to share content on your account? Well, it’s a great way to spread your message, promote your business or product you’re selling or simply share some special moments with family and friends. You can post anything from a quote that motivates you, your brand’s logo, new products you have in your business, simply a picture of you and your family or your favourite food!
You do have to keep in mind what the theme or intention of your page is. If it’s a business page, probably don’t post pictures of your cousin’s new puppy, and if it’s a personal page people probably don’t want to see 10 promotional photos a week. Stay consistent with your theme and you will be more likely to gain the most out of your posts and attract the right audience.
In this post I am going to go through some of the basics you need to know to post a photo or video on your Instagram page. It’s pretty simple, so don’t worry; you don’t need a 1st Class Double Honours Phd in Computer Engineering and Cyber Security.
Go onto the Insta App.
If you don’t have the app on your mobile phone, please go to your app store and type in “Instagram” into the search bar. Then click download the app, wait a few minutes and you will then be able to “open app”. Your phone might ask you for a password in order to download the phone application, so type it in and the download will start.
Click the square with a cross inside it to start uploading a photo or video.
Here you will get access to all your recent posts in the “library” tab at the bottom. You can choose to upload multiple photos by selecting the square in the bottom right corner of the main photo showing. There is also a cool function to create a little photo poster with multiple pictures. If you choose one of these options; it will then allow you to select multiple images for your post. Alternatively you can press the middle “photo” or right tab “video” to take a photo/video there and then.
This will take you to the edit function. You can press the magic wand in the middle at the top of your photo for automatic edit of your picture or video. If you press on the “edit” tab in the right bottom corner that will take you to a more advanced edit function where you can play around and make your image black/white, brighter, darker, sharper or change the colours altogether. For multiple photos click on each individual one to edit and press “done” in the top right corner when you are done. When you’re satisfied with the outcome click on the “next” tab.
This will take you to the last step before posting.
Here you can write a caption, add some hashtags, add location, tag people and even share to Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. Click on the “write a caption” to add a description to your post, a positive quote or simply a smiley face. If there are other people in the picture you can tag their instagram account by simply clicking on “tag people” followed by clicking on the picture and typing in their insta name.
Click “share” in order to make your post visible to other people. You can now purchase some likes to boost your engagement on insta! Congratulations, you have officially completed the post share!
