Instagram hacks for photo and video sharing

15. Make your captions more readable with line breaks

If you favor the long-form caption a la National Geographic, this hack will make your posts more readable.

How to do it:

  1. Edit your photo and proceed to the caption screen
  2. Write your caption
  3. To access the Return key, tap the 123 key on your device’s keyboard
  4. Use Return to add breaks to your caption

Note: The breaks will start a new line, but not create the white space that you would see between two paragraphs. If you want a paragraph break, write out your caption in a note app and copy it to Instagram. To break up lines further, consider using punctuation, such as bullet points or dashes, to hold the place of an empty line.

16. Schedule Instagram posts

Too busy to post at a time when your audience is active on Instagram? Use Hootsuite to schedule photos direct to Instagram.

How to do it:

Note: Check out our guide to scheduling posts on Instagram to learn how to do this from a personal account.

17. Use individual photos to make a larger one

Get creative and have fun with Instagram’s grid format.

How to do it:

  1. To share a #triplegram, simple share three related images consecutively so that they take up an entire line with a single unified look
  2. To share a grid post series, try cropping a single image into nine (apps like these can make the process easy) and share them in quick succession

18. Adjust the intensity of filters

For those who want something close to—but not quite—the #nofilter look.

How to do it:

  1. After uploading or taking a photo, tap the filter you’d like to use
  2. Tap the filter again to open edit options
  3. Use the sliding scale to adjust the intensity of the filter
  4. Tap Done to add the filter to your post and continue your edits

19. Upload or capture a post with multiple scenes

It’s an Instagram Story that never disappears!
