To start, I opened up Instagram on my mobile phone and also below's what I saw:
It's a little bit confusing, yet the switch under that's highlighted in blue? That's not the current sight you have, although that's certainly an usual interface convention. You get on the major feed which is accessed by the home button on the reduced left. Odd, I understand.
Faucet on the camera icon under-- facility!-- with heaven highlight. Currently your camera will turn on and you'll see a sneak peek of the picture you're about to take:
To take a picture, faucet on the blue switch. To earn a (short) video, tap on the video camera symbol to the right of the switch. Faucet on the left switch and you could access your existing images on the phone (exactly what I normally make use of, utilizing the regular phone camera app for taking the picture).

Successive, I'll fine-tune the Contrast because I locate that on my apple iphone, at least, it's constantly simply a bit less than I favor:
Once again, utilize your finger to readjust it with the slider, and also tap on the check mark to devote the change or the "X" to discard it if you change your mind.
Right here's how it looks currently:.
The picture most definitely looks better. To proceed, touch on the "Next" link on the top right.

If you want your area identified on a map when the image is published-- do not do this if you're house!!-- then leave the slider on "Add to Photo Map" made it possible for, as I have.
