Even better, the photos that I'm going to show you how to get are gonna be also 100% free. So with that being said, this course is going to be extremely step by step short and over the shoulder, like I'm actually gonna take out my iPhone. You get to watch exactly what I do, the buttons. I press the steps I followed. Basically, you could do the same thing regardless of what? Your niches. So that sounds like something you really want to do If you haven't figured out how people are creating those really viral yet motivational, inspirational photos on Instagram, you definitely need to enroll right now. I'm James Kansan. Ella, Thank you for watching. We'll see you in the next video. 2. The Free Application: Hey, James Kansan. Hello and welcome to the course. And as you can see in front of you, I'm pretty excited. I got this new application where I can actually show you what I'm doing on my iPhone and recorded on my computer. Pretty cool, Right? So the first step to this is going to be obviously, you're going to need a mobile phone to do this. And you want to go to the APP store? As you can see. Okay. Next you want to go to search? Now, when you go to search, there's gonna be tons of these applications for this example. I'm going to use word dream. Okay, now, there's a lot of other great APS out there. Some of them are going to be free, like this one were. Dream pro is going to be 3 99 There's word swag. That's 4 99 but the one we want to use here is word dream, typographic e generator, cool fonts. And that that that whatever else all right, So anyway, well, you want to do is basically normally there would be a get I'm really I'm pointing right now to where there's a get for the snap notice. That would be where the open is. I obviously already had the application, so it says open. But either way, all you got to do here is tap on where it says open and you'll be able to download it. And that's the first simple step. All right, so if you could do that, you're good to go. It's a first step. Go ahead and download the word dream. It's going to be the free version. There's going to be a really small watermark on the bottom of the photos, which isn't a big deal, but either way can always upgrade or get rid of that or use different one. But for this example, we want to keep it 100% free and go ahead, do that. We'll see in the next video. 3. The Free Professional Photos: Hey, James. Ken's in all and welcome to this video where I'm gonna show you how to get some MMA ammunition, so to speak when it comes to creating an instagram photo. So the idea here is that lot of these viral pictures. They usually have some type of, depending on your niche. Like if you're doing some type of entrepreneur success, you know, maybe it might be a Ferrari, Lamborghini, a big mansion, and so on, so forth. But with that being said, if you want to create an image that usually does well virally, you want to use something that's kind of universal. So something like a sunset, something like a beach or an island, something that's tropical. Those tend to do really well. Okay, So keep that in mind. What we want to do here is you can't see it, but at the bottom, I'm tapping on that drawer. Okay, You did see it. Okay, so what this does is go to collection. So what you want to look for is something that's going to be similar to Maybe beaches vacation. Okay. Family might work shades of way. Surf cities, Gabes the collection 1 10 that could work well, but I was gonna go a little bit more till we find some type of beach into the wild that could work my sky travel cityscape collection 14 rivers, streams. And maybe let's get something with the beaches, roads. Hopefully, you're not getting dizzy by now. Okay? I know I'm not, um, still going workspace with this food style. Right? Next time I find something that's remotely similar, That's not a person's back, Ariel. Perfect summer. I'm glad I took that extra 10 seconds to look for a better one. All right, so right there. That's like a perfect one, all right? What? I mean, like, people love beaches. They love tropical. You know, uh, you know, sitting there with, like, a margarita and their hand, whatever. Eso you want to look for something that doesn't have a ton going on like this. Putting text across these women might not work that well. This could be pretty good. You'd probably have to dim the the text a little, but something that's more basic with not a ton of colors going on that way, it's easier to see the font that you use like something like that could work. It's looking for a plane beach setting. You don't have to go as crazy as I am when it comes to finding what you want to use. But we're gonna do what you gotta do it right. Or at least more effective, for that matter, if we don't find anything soon, I'm about to use that pineapple in telling you. Women, women, women, more women. A lot of women. Okay, you can't go wrong with women. Okay, then let's go back to the top with use this one. Right? So what I want to do is click on it, tap on it, okay? And then I'm gonna click this arrow kind of on the top. Right? Okay. I'm gonna tap it and hold on. Do save image. Okay? It's a simple Is that so? This is how you can go about getting ammunition, so to speak when it comes to finding pictures. Obviously, if you want to do something more specific, maybe you're in tow. Weight loss. And there was a lot of women there. I'm sure there's weight loss for women. Maybe someone running, lifting weights. Look for something that's going to be related to your niche. However, I'm kind of like, you know, the entrepreneur. Online business success. So a lot of these pictures I'm showing you showing you here. They work very well. So keep that in mind. It's up to you. Find your pictures, save it, and I'll see you in the next video. 4. How To Create Viral Instagram Pictures: Why, Hello? There it is. James Ganzon. L And it's nice to see you. Oh, bright I and bushy tailed. With that being said, we were going to actually open up the application we had originally downloaded, which is called Word Dreams. All you gotta do is tap that icon. And that was quick. Okay, we got some chick fil a. We got some other crazy stuff. We got some black cats, and we got a lot of this other really cool stuff you can see in the background, which is going to be kind of the idea that you're gonna be doing so first and foremost. What you want to do is tap the image button, which is going to be the top left. Okay, And what you want to do here is click, unless you want to use one of these backgrounds which some of these aren't that bad. Maybe they pertain to what you're going to be doing in your niche or your message or your market or whatever it is. Either way, I'm gonna click on the albums, and I'm going to upload a picture, so I'll see you in about one second. Okay. Awesome. So aside from that one side basically uploaded. I said don't crop. I just wanted to keep it how it was. Now we've got a lot of cool things we can do with this. Okay? Seeing the bottom where says word dream and white. Okay, that's gonna be that annoying. Ah, watermark. But the other byword dream, you could easily get riff. So no big deal Either way, click on text. Okay. This thing can be annoying to use. You want to click on change text? Okay, let me delete this. Okay, so it's do once is never enough. Quote I happen to like And, of course, by this word dream right here makes you get rid of that as well. Okay. You don't need to have that there. The first time I tried to seem like damn, they have to watermarks was the point of this. All right? It makes it look like that. Um, word dream was a part of the quote, but anyway, what you could do here is actually Ah, good idea would be to put your user name. Okay, whatever your I g name is, Or maybe if you want to use this in multiple locations maybe you want to use this for Twitter. You can just put at in your user name just for this example. I'm gonna keep it blank, OK? And then do saving close. Continue. Any wakes? No one likes you. Not you, but the app. Okay, Anyway, let's do this. Do this. Okay? Just changing up the text here, testing it out. Okay. Color. Okay. See what I mean? When it comes to specific type of fonts? Oh, excuse me. I can't use that. Sometimes it's really going to kind of get in the way. Like where? If you put a black text here, you know, it's it's gonna be tough to see. Okay, Like that's not that bad. I'd honestly put more effort into it. OK, what we got for this? Okay, that looks horrible. Let's undo that. Okay, that looks horrible. Er okay, let's not do that. Let's go to style, OK? This is where we can start getting cool, Okay? Yes. No box. See, that's not that bad. Like when you put it on the tree like you can see it. But if it was going to be all I don't know, maybe on the beach you would be maybe tougher to read, so you just gotta play around with it. Like I said, I wanted to Ah, look, probably for a better picture. Or maybe it was only the beach that way. Like I said, it's easier to see. Kid s a just a plain one. That's that one. Personally, I like this one. Actually, I don't think I use that one romantic. There's a lot of them, as you can see. So this was inspirational. Okay, that's not bad. That's huge. But that's good. Okay, let's see what else they have passion. Okay, Sure. We're playing the guitar now. Okay. Leisure, leisure could work like a lot of these things are basically just messing around with them. Okay? I don't know what's going on there. OK, now, now I see Adorable. Okay, we're going crazy here. Let's go. Inspiration. All right. Back to this once is never enough. Perfect. Sure. Okay, we got color case. We want to change this. That makes it really tough to see. That makes it impossible to see. That makes it still pretty tough. We're getting uglier as we go. Oh, my goodness. Stick with white. OK? Like I said, the picture is Ah, it's a pretty big deal, all right? Like I said, um, if you have too many colors, it's gonna be much harder to make it stick out. Okay, Let's stick with that. The effect image and change texts. And basically, that's it. I already did that. Continue. Anyway. Look what you did, you little jerk. If you've ever seen a what's it called home alone? Get ahead of myself. So we got to go back to this. All right? So I think that one works out. My goodness, I keep hitting the wrong button. There we go. So once is never enough. Now, all you got to do is hit the button on the top, right? Which is save. Okay. And then do save image, and you're basically done. Okay. It's a simple Is that? Like I said originally, I would use a depending. On what? Your niches. If you're doing some type of beach, keep in mind. You want to use something that kind of has one color in a specific section. Like I said, this weight doesn't work. Too bad when it's against the trees, because you can see it. But if this was all beach are all sky would be so much easier to use one color and make it pop out more. So there's really no method to it when it comes to being like, Oh, this is the best ever. You just really gotta play with it and test around the colors, okay? Or maybe could even do something like, you know, put it on the top Completely up to you. You get the idea. But either way, I'm gonna go ahead and use this since I spent some time making it. Not this specific one, but the one I saved. But either way, I hope you learn something new. If you want, you could always, you know, pay a few bucks, or maybe test out a different photo app. There's like millions of these nowadays because Instagram is so popular. But either way, I'm James Kansan. Ella, Thank you for watching. Have a great day
