If you are an avid Instagram user then you probably think that you know everything that there is to know about the social media platform. Well, think again!
Below we have listed some of the lesser-known hacks that will make the process of posting and sharing content that much easier and much more enjoyable.
For those of you who love using filters on your photos but hate having to scroll through all the various different ones in order to find the one that you use most often, then you should pay close attention to this hack. To do this scroll right to the very end of the filters when in the editing option and press the Manage option.
Now you have done this, you can completely change the order of the filters so that the ones that you use most are first. You also have the option here to deselect any of the filters that you never use so that they do not appear as an option in the first place.
Change Filter Strength
When you want to use a certain filter but do not want it at full strength so it has less of an effect, there is the ability to change the strength. This is done by pressing the magic wand icon that is directly above the photo. Using the slider that then appears below the photo, you are able to change the strength of the filter in order to get the exact look and feel that you are trying to achieve.
Remove Video Audio
You do not always require audio on a video for it to be effective and have the desired impact. Likewise, some videos that you record may have really poor quality audio and so it is better to post it without it. In those instances, the audio can be removed during the process of uploading it to Instagram by pressing the speaker icon that is located at the top of the editing screen. It is as simple as that.
Save Live Videos
Any videos that have been recorded through the Instagram Live feature can be saved so that they can be used again on the app for other purposes. Once you have finished doing a live broadcast, press Save in the top corner on the right and then press Done. It will then be saved directly onto your smart phone’s camera roll.
Using these best hacks will not only help to make your life easier when on the app but will also free up more of your time so that you can focus on building your presence on there.
