Instagram stories these days have become a popular media platform. Snapchat had its time to shine, but now Instagram is in the limelight. Instagram story provides users to be much more creative than Snapchat stories do- with the poll, hashtag, and location features on Instagram, it is bounds better than Snapchat stories. I am not in any way shape or form an expert on this topic, but I have learned a few things in the time that I’ve used Instagram story!
1. Use the marker tool
The marker tool on Instagram is much more advanced than the one on Snapchat. There are 3 different cool markers to choose from. You also get to choose how thick you want the writing from the marker to be, and exactly what color. It’s especially ~aesthetically pleasing~ to do some cool cursive with the markers.
2. Layer wording
Whether you layer some cursive writing, some cursive and some block lettering, or two layers of block lettering- it all looks cool! Plus it draws more attention to what you’re saying
3. Use the location feature
Snapchat also has the location feature, but it’s not anywhere near as advanced as Instagram’s. It’s pretty neat that Instagram allows you to click on the location, and you can see other people’s stories and pictures that have also been posted there
4. Use your own filter
Sometimes the filters they give you on Instagram story are limiting- it’s best to use your own filter, just to give yourself some freedom! Just edit the picture on your own, and then upload it to your story from your camera roll.
5. Use the marker to do cute designs
Some pictures are just kind of plain and need something to spice them up, this is when this tool comes in handy! Use one of the markers and draw some polka dots or some squiggles.
6. Scribble with the marker behind block letters
For example, if you were writing on an all white picture, with some white letters, it might be a good idea to draw with a colored marker behind it. It will make the letters pop more, and look like you put more time and effort into it than you really did!
