The text should be minimally short. Instagram Users usually have a small attention span, so you only have a few seconds to keep their interest, even if you have fascinating content. Use short sentences. No need to write long paragraphs of text. Better to let your text starts on the same slide and continues on the other.
7. Crop pictures using the standard features of a smartphone
Typically, a smartphone and Stories use 9:16 aspect ratio, but if you shoot at standard camera, you will have to get pictures of different size. Before you upload them, crop your photos — so you can then choose which photo will be in the center.
8. Lay the old material with new metadata
When you process and save files using editors like Photoshop, iMovie or Premier, Instagram thinks that all of this materials are filmed in one day. Thus you can publish old photos and videos, or create form them a long story that shows development for a long time.
9. Consider the scenario
Imagine that you are making a movie. First you have to show the opening frame, then go to the middle of the story and add details to the story seemed more personal. One of the most common mistakes that users, is that they publish a long series of mediocre photos without any depth or details.
10. Put text with the help of special programs
It is a pity, but in Instagram is available in a very limited number of fonts. If you want to make your story more creative when adding text, use third-party photo editors. We understand that the processing of the photos will take you more time and patience than if you just add them to the story. However, after processing, the images will look cooler. If you are well versed in graphic design, you will certainly like to experiment with the format 9:16.
11. Correctly place text in the frame
There is no need to put the text too high or low, otherwise it will close the interface elements of Instagram. Use the blank area in the frame, for example, the sky or the ground. Either you should insert in the story a few solid shots transitions, on which you will place your text.
Ask friends, relatives and colleagues to witness (and mark them in the story).
Nowadays most of people have a smartphone, and where something is happening, always there are people. Ask others to comment on the situation on camera. So your story will be more interesting. Don't forget to mention participants, but don't overdo it.
