Use Instagram Effects on iPhone and Android


The new Effects interface in Instagram Stories on an iPhone.

How to Find and Use Instagram Effects

Instagram Effects is yet another addition to the already crowded Instagram Stories interface. To check it out, open Instagram, and then either swipe right from the left edge or tap the Camera icon in the top-left corner.

Make sure you’re in “Normal” mode. The Shutter button should be in the center, surrounded by a carousel of circular icons, which are Instagram Effects.

Tap "Normal" if you're not in that mode and the Instagram Effects appear.

Simply swipe left to preview the new Effects (the top and curated Effects will appear).

To open the Effects Gallery, swipe all the way to the right of the carousel and tap “Browse Effects.”

Tap "Browse Effects."

Alternatively, you can select any Effect from the carousel, and then tap its name.

Tap the name of any Effect to see more options.

Here, tap “Browse Effects.”

 Tap "Browse Effects."

The “Effects Gallery” shows you the top Effects. At the top, you can switch to a different category. Tap an Effect if you want to preview it.

Tap an Effect in the "Effects Gallery."

If you like it and want to see how it looks, tap “Try It.” The Instagram Stories interface opens instantly with the new Effect ready to go.

Tap "Try It" on the Effects menu.

If the Effect has more options, smaller circles appear above the Shutter button; scroll through to try them all. Some Effects also have hidden versions; tap the screen to access them.

Scroll through an Effect's additional options.

When you’re satisfied with an Effect, tap the Shutter button to take a photo or tap and hold to record a video.

On the next screen, tap “Your Story” if you want to add the image or video to your Story. To send it to a friend or see more options, tap “Send To.”

Tap "Send To."
