How Do I Post Pictures to Instagram
To start, I opened up Instagram on my smartphone and right here's just what I saw:
It's a bit complicated, but the switch on the bottom that's highlighted in blue? That's not the present view you have, even though that's certainly an usual user interface convention. You're on the main feed which is accessed by the home button on the reduced left. Weird, I recognize.
Tap on the camera symbol on the bottom-- center!-- with heaven emphasize. Now your camera will certainly activate and you'll see a preview of the picture you will take:
To take a picture, tap on the blue switch. To earn a (short) video clip, tap on the video camera symbol to the right of the button. Faucet on the left button and you could access your existing photos on the phone (what I normally utilize, using the regular phone camera app for taking the picture).

If you desire your area determined on a map when the picture is posted-- do not do this if you're house!!-- after that leave the slider on "Add to Photo Map" enabled, as I have. You can additionally identify specific places by tapping on "Name This Location" and scrolling through the list to discover the dining establishment, bar, concert place, auditorium or various other location.
