With Instagram on the rise and gaining millions of new users every week, it is now the time to keep your Instagram looking fresh and a cut above the rest.
With the introduction to the new Archive and Highlights feature with Instagram Stories you can now customise your highlights feature with your own icons. This will keep your Insta within brand guidelines and letting users navigate around your profile easier.
How you ask? Let us show you... Here's some background info to get you started!
WHAT ARE INSTAGRAM STORIES HIGHLIGHTS?
Instagram stories are videos and images that last 24hrs before disappearing. Highlights allow you to preserve what you’ve shared in a way that you can categorise your story posts and have people view them when they go to your profile. Instagram Stories give your followers (and potential followers) a glimpse into your life, behind the scenes and your personality which helps build a story about your brand/profile.

NOW IT'S BACK TO YOU...
Next step is to load all the images we send you into your Instagram Story. Swipe to the story camera on Insta, select your image from your phone gallery and add. Keep doing this step till all your highlight icons images are loaded into your Instagram story.
Under your profile click the plus sign. Choose the image from your Stories (you can select others that you’d like to add to the highlight) then click “next.”
Then click “edit cover” and choose the cover you created.
DONE! It's a bit of a read but it really just takes 5 mins and gives your Instagram profile a nice touch.
