Step Four: Edit Your Designs

To edit a design, simply click on the Edit button.  You can then customize your design by doing a combination of the following:

  • add text and change your font selection
  • add elements
  • add photos
  • resize & reposition items
  • bring items forward and backward
  • change colors
  • change the opacity

Once you’re done with making any last edits, click on the Go Schedule button to schedule your new designer-quality posts!

Step Six: Schedule Your New Posts

You will now see your brand new designs on your Drafts tab.  To schedule one of your new images, simply click on it.  From there, you can enter your IG Caption along with your hashtags.  And, be sure to check out the handy Suggested Hashtags feature!  If you’d like, you can check off the “Post hashtags in first comment” to have the hashtags show up as the first comment as opposed to adding them into your main caption.

Continue filling out the rest of the post information and select a time to schedule the post.  Once you’re done, hit that Schedule button and you’re done!
