How to Create Instagram Story Highlights

Have you looked at an Instagram account and thought “How do I get those highlights?”

Well look no further, I got your back. You do not need to be a graphic designer or a photoshop master it’s a lot easier than your think.

For my highlight graphics I used CANVA. Create designs with ease using their drag and drop features. Here’s a step by step of how I created my graphics.

Select a template. Under elements pick Grids and select the first option. The grid should pop up in the main area and from here you can edit the color using the upper left color icon.

Go to illustrations and search an image. For this tutorial I chose a computer to represent my blog.

By clicking on the image, it should pop up onto your current template. From there you can resize the image and change the color.
