Step 1: You will need your phone to post to Instagram. You cannot do this online. Once you have your phone, open the Instagram app.
Step 2: Press the "+" button in the bottom middle of your screen.
Step 3: You can take a picture or choose a picture from your photo library, the same goes for posting videos. In order to take a picture, press "Photo." Then, press "Next."
Step 4: Once you have chosen your picture you can edit it. Instagram allows you to change the filter on a picture, adjust the lighting, fade the corners of the picture and much more. We recommend searching through all of the edit settings to familiarize yourself with the many ways a picture can be altered. When you are done editing, press "Next."
Step 5: Now that you are done editing your picture, you can create a caption. Click "Write a caption..." and type what you would like to say about the picture. There is no limit of characters on Instagram.
Step 6: From here, you can also "tag" people. If there is a company or someone in your picture that you would like to notify of your post, or there is someone in the picture you would like to identify for your followers, press the "tag people" button. The picture you are posting will pop up. Tap the picture and search for the person or company you would like to tag. NOTE: Everyone can see who you tag in a picture.
Step 7: After you are done tagging people and companies, press "Done." The last thing you can do from here is decide whether you want to share this picture to other social media websites. The chosen filter and caption will also appear on these sites. If you would like to do this, simply press the switch next to the platforms you want to share the picture on
Step 8: When you are done, press "Share" in the upper right-hand corner. People can now see your posts on their timeline and "like" them.
Congratulations, you have created an Instagram post!
