Want to save some time when creating an Instagram Story? Here’s one trick you should know about to make your Instagram efforts a bit easier and take the pressure off of designing content or formatting a template when you just want to write a quick piece of copy using a solid background and maybe also add a GIF or emoji!
By using the three tap trick, you can easily get the color you want from their available palette. Here’s how:
1. In Stories, go to the type option and create your message. When finished, click the arrow at the bottom of the screen.
2. Click on the marker at the top of the screen and select a color for your Story background. You can also press down on any circle color to pull up the full palette.
3. Once you’ve selected your background color, tap the screen three times with one finger and press down for a few seconds. Wait a moment and the background color that you selected will appear! From here, you can pick a font selection, change the color of the text, add emojis and GIFS.
