But with this card, you only end of them because it will show you exactly how to use your instagram stories up . In order to create amazing instagram stories for your instagram account, I will show you some basic examples in order to get to know how this process works and then we will be live on, some more advanced. So if you're in the give your phone and let's get started. 2. Welcome / Instructions: I'm super happy. You haven't dropped this course and the let me explain you work in order to create these amazing the second stories, you will need just two bottles, text bottle and withdraw bottom that you will find in the hope of your Instagram stories Camera. That's with these two buttons. We can be so creative and they will show you step by step. They believe in these ways you can use them. I respect this course in tow, video answers, examples and exercises and the world's you to watch carefully. It's lesson and then take the necessary time in order to recreate what I have sold you in the flesh. I just want you to make sure that you have updated your instagram mob and let's start with less number one. 3. Aa Button 1: Match Color Pallette / Combine Fonts : Okay, so let's start with her first story. What we want to do on our first story is to just use the text bottom and months, the Kohler off the text with the colors or for picture. So I just choose a big church. I will stop hold With two fingers under size, my picture could be feet my screen. And then I will stop the text bottom. I would write what they want. I like to use the space between money. Lead person off more beautiful outcome. I want to write Happy birthday. I just right happy. And they used the drug to choose the cooler for one off my balloons to march the cold with my text I don't Here and the next world we use capital letters since spaces between my letters and for this world are, well, odd But they ground to my world So we top the a Oh, he left corner to have the ground at the top of the eyedropper again And they were now to the yo but no police it here. So as you can see the goal off the two words that have already reading much is the cause of my image again. Probably 30 my very. And these, of course, would be color William Done. Painter for stories ready. I will scroll on the right to make it right. And this is your first story Now, little born our second technique lease to combine phones too. Story a picture again and they will stop the takes. But don't now if I won't write something, for example, I want to read Good morning How we use the space between letters again a z you consume the dope. I have some fund options the classic Mordor me on typewriter and strong. I will combine phones in order to make my takes look more beautiful. For example, I use the classic for these funds and make you black Good. Now with things fund. I want these and that will make blood again. Good morning. And let's story now we use when you use capital letters. Okay, I'll make it black. And that will send the phone. Make it some, like typewriter is good and we make it smaller and thirsty. And this is our second technique to combine for orange on one story 4. Exercise 1: okay? 5. Aa Button 2: Text as Frame/ Use each Letter Separately: Okay. Now think Use the text. Is the board there or frame for me, Victor? And let me explain how we choose a picture again. And they will resize my picture to make it look smolder. And now I can write checks and use it a frame or a border for this takes. You can read whatever you want. I usually don't when it for something new, right? I boast and explain some of the most on my cap soon or I like to use Also quote. So for this example, I have choose a I will go based eat And this is what they would have to So I will keep on Lee first phrase. What if I fall? What if we fall and making block and then we change the formed I will choose this run and resize and replace. See on the corner McCormick. I will base thing used. Same way resize. Choose the Kohler and place it here on the government. You can use things method only for one of your corners or you can do it again. So this is a technique to use the text as border frame for our victors. Technique is to use its letter separately in order to frame and object on my photo and let me explain, I will choose foot again. I we resize e and I only have to do is to Jews and object on my picture and noted, like this run. We like this one with seizure sickle or a corner and I will place it's letter separately without the text bottom and the phone. I want toe right coffee times crowd week asili. Um I just use the classic scene to the color these and they will play seat around my addicted to and they will repeat this process and for the next letters. - So this is the final outcome. I have placed its letter separately around my safe around the 65 Children on my picture. I d suffers. Wait, do these. So you now admit to these foot again this picture again I see size it believe seat mom here and I will also use each letter separately. But this time I will add a background toe My writer interview days off course of color, two months. My picture. This time. This time I can please a also the letters, uh, around my shape. But this time I want to see on the boat. - So this is the final result. They seize the same technique, but with a ground on my letters and they gives a little bit different outcome. 6. Exercise 2 / DonőĄt skip your exercises!: okay? 7. Aa Button 3: Add Shadow/ Shapes /Overlays using Text : Okay, Moving wad A sado on my letter center My text I have choosen and your picture and I feel okay this run and they want to write logically g I well choose a height of tone over the colder This one I like this run and they will play. See here And I will write the same world again with the same fun with same formed but with a different color He's dying, It will be a durkin ground And I will my ward and they dope Oh my off the world in a previous return And yeah, you have to belong to food police in a way that it would look like a sandal. Unfortunately, East London give us the option to choose the size off the forms like there's so just to make it do you the two worlds the same size and as you can see now my letters is like waving a sandal. And of course I would write cake. Okay, Now use a different phoned. Thank you. You and they seize the final result. The technical. So you have to add saves using the text. Batam, Just stop on the text. But I don and right whatever and go to the classic formed and are able ground. He's stronger ground Len shoes the letters and making the same color ace your background. For example If my background if you choose my background to be read then I was choose me letters and make them parade too. Cook them and your first shape is ready these way You cannot another safe All right whatever you on the ground choose a color 20 liters and make them the same ground done. And this way you cannot stapes. And now you can write something like smooth here. And I said here are even here Make it here, this one. Oh, be here here difference Almost. He's one too. So this is a way to what saves using Vicks. And lastly I will. So you have to use the text. Barton inordinate wad overlays with the color on your pictures with some on the text bottom and just use the dot place, stop mond doats and then use the classic phoned and the a tow background. But no base. This background and dentures you call the calorie like just keep on Top Inc to open the color absence and choose the one that you want stop down and then resize.

We see the first way in the most common way used the drug Do But let me so other creative ways to do that way usually drug Julie east to just 100 to write with her finger or our owner, Victor. I choose the new four door and they go to draw. And when I 100 like my pain to be a thing s possible and then we choose a core and they just come here on my screen and I handwrite Good morning to me. T This is a very common way to use the drug to And of course I can change. And just these swan and to another color. Brighter. Uh, good morning again. Darts All would every like, so we can use it to weld an overlay on the double for being a jerk.
