They can be aligned, formatted, changed color, size etc. But what we can do with some skill is to give them a touch of "3D" to make them jump off the screen. The truth is that this trick is very simple and you only have to write a text with one color and then the same with a different one to achieve that effect.

The popularity of Instagram has grown since incorporating Stories, a feature that allows you to add photos and videos that are only available for 24 hours. It is a function very similar to the one that has the Snapchat that also has a very simple interface to use.
To take photos and videos at the moment you have to press on the top where the + (plus) sign appears, that way the camera is automatically activated. As in Snapchat, pressing the button takes an image and if it is kept pressed a video is recorded. To deactivate the sound, simply press on the image of the bell.
Once you have chosen the image or video you can add filters by sliding your finger from right to left. One of the most interesting functions is the markers. There are two different strokes and several colors to choose from. And one of them has a very bright tone that allows a special touch to the publications.
You can write text directly on the image. To change the size of the letter you have to touch the text, as if the words were touched with your fingers, and enlarge or shrink as desired.

A priori does not seem that Instagram had much mystery: an application that allows to make, edit and store photographs on-almost-anything and receive praises in the form of "I like" for each one of them. Seven years after launching this simple approach, the truth is that it has become one of the most popular social networks in the world, and every change that introduces is news for the more than 600 million users that has spread all over the balloon.
From the change of color of his icon to the suspicious resemblance to Snapchat and his stories to the censorship he makes with the woman's nipples. Surely you've wondered how some users get such a special touch to their photos. Now that Instagram goes beyond simple image capture, let's explain six tricks to get the most out of the fashion app.
I want it all: upload more than one photo in your post
One of the recent additions to the range of Instagram tools is the possibility of adding, from a sitting, multiple photographs or videos. Thus, you can upload from a single event up to ten related photos. It also works in case you do not clarify with which selfie to upload, for example. The option will appear when you are uploading a photo: clicking on the central button - the one with a + - next to the icons that symbolize Boomerang or Layout, you will find the "select multiple" option. You will know that a post has more than one photograph because below appear circles that turn blue as you move from one photograph to another.
A few years ago, uploading a photograph to Instagram with a text in which there was an errat only had a solution: erase it and rewrite (paying more attention this time). Instagram now allows you to edit previously published posts to add or remove text, location, or allow it to also be published on other social networks on which it is linked, such as Twitter or Facebook. The three-dot button on the top left of each photo displays a panel with different options: delete, disable comments, share or edit. Ready.
No comments on posts
An option that will please all those who want to avoid a discussion in your photograph or simply not give rise to praise and congratulations. In the same button in the upper left corner where the option to edit we find "disable comments", so Instagram users focus on the photos and nothing else.
Button to save now and inspire you later
If you scroll distractedly on the screen and find an evocative photograph or simply want to treasure for the memory, now you can save it in a section on your profile. At the bottom right of each new photo will appear an icon that only has to be pressed for the post to be saved. Entering your profile, you can check what you have saved by clicking the last button on the list, just to the right of the "photos in which you appear" tag.
The popularity of Snapchat has caused that Instagram has wanted to begin also in the world of the photographs that are lost to the 24 hours. Dragging the screen to the right opens the camera, with which you can take photos or record videos to upload to your own account or send certain people. At that moment, a pink circle will appear surrounding your profile photo: it means you have a "story". You can check who has seen what you have uploaded, because on the bottom side are the names of contacts that have gone through your story. Once you have the picture made you can decorate it with emoticons, filters that appear if you slide the screen to the sides, write on ...
Instagram stories are a great way to interact with followers and get closer to the lives of others. Not only can you capture a moment that you want to share with the Instagram world - well, if the profile is public, users will be able to see you even if they do not follow you - you can also upload a recent photo that you have made with the camera by simply sliding your finger upwards. Now, in addition, the geostickers have arrived, some emoticons specific to the place where you have taken the photo. You must have the location activated on your mobile phone so that this original way of letting your followers know in which city you are.
