With over 150 million active daily users, Instagram is a social channel that can’t be ignored! This mainly visual network requires high quality photos and content to get cut through. Join our Art Director Kris, as he guides you through the basic steps of creating your own, unique content for Instagram!
To get started, press the “New Design” button on your designs page.
Use the “Size” filters on the left hand side to show only Instagram graphic templates. Then, select a design template that you like the look of.
If the template has an image, you can replace it with something more suited to your promotion. Select the image on the canvas by clicking on it, and then search for a new image in the image tab. Pick a new image you like, and drag it on top of the old one to automatically replace it.
You can use “Image Colors” to automatically generate a nice color palette for your design, select elements like this color block & the line above it, and change them to one of the options from the suggested Image Colors palette.
Double click on any text box to edit the content. Replace the template’s placeholder content with the details you need.
Choose from hundreds of fonts, select a textbox and then click on the font dropdown in the edit tab of the sidebar.
Once you are finished, give your design a name. Click on the design title in the header, and simply type a new name in, then hit update.
Finally, download your design. A High Quality PNG will be able to be uploaded straight to Instagram.
