Other Ways to Design Instagram Posts

Here are some other choices to make and save Instagram post templates, so you can have stunning posts on hand whenever you’re ready to post.

1. Canva

Canva gives thousands of customizable Instagram post templates. To make an Instagram post on Canva, visit Canva’s Create a Design page, choose “Instagram Post”, and then follow these steps:

1. On the left side, you’ll see an array of template options (some cost money, while others are free). Select one that you like.

2. When you choose a template, tap on the text box to write something. There are colors at the top if you want to change your text color. You can also choose font, size, and spacing.

3. When you’re done with your text, choose the background of your image (outside the text box). This will let you filter your background, adjust the brightness and contrast of the image, and more.

4. When you’re satisfied with your template, open the Canva app on your phone. Choose your Instagram post design.

5. Click “Share” in the top right of the screen.

6. Now, you can publish straight to Instagram by choosing “Import with Instagram”. If you aren’t ready to publish it, you can also choose “Save Image”. Then it will be saved in your camera roll for later.

7. If you are immediately publishing on Instagram, select whether you want to upload to your “Story” or “Feed”.

8. Edit the Instagram post like you would any other post — include tags, write a caption, add location, etc. When you’re ready, choose “Share” in the top right.

Keep in mind, your template is automatically saved to your Canva account. You can access it in the future, on both desktop and app versions of Canva on your phone, and edit it with new text to post the same design again.

Alternatively, you might think about making a few posts no. And then saving them to your camera roll to publish them in the future.

Besides Canva, there are some other design editors that offer free pre-made Instagram templates. In particular, here are three tools you might try out:
