How to Create Custom Instagram Posts
In order to start creating beautiful Instagram Posts, start by opening the BeFunky Graphic Designer. From here, you can click the green button that says Search Templates.
In the Start a Design menu that appears, you'll see all the categories of design templates to choose from on the left. To find Instagram Templates, simply expand the Social Media category and click on Instagram Posts. This will pull up all of the perfectly-sized template options. Scroll through the design templates to find the perfect design to start with.
Select a template based on the kind of post you’re trying to create and then click use this template.
The images on your design template can be replaced with any photo of your choice. To fill the template with your custom content, open the Image Manager tab in the menu on the left and use the Computer button to upload any photo from your Computer. Alternatively, you can click the Search Stock Images button to search over a million free stock photos to use in your project! Once uploaded, your images will appear in the Image Manager as thumbnails that you can drag-and-drop to replace any existing images on the template.
To edit the text on your template, double-click any text box in your design template and begin typing. A Text Properties menu will appear any time you have a text box selected, allowing you to customize the look of the text. Use it to select new fonts that match your brand aesthetic, and even add your own fonts if you’ve got something specific in mind. You can also customize the color of your text, letter spacing, opacity, and so much more!
To add some additional text to your Instagram Post design, simply select any text box and press the D button on your keyboard to Duplicate the text and all of its properties. Then, type something new and drag the text box into your preferred position on the template.
If you'd like to add any additional vector graphics, open the Graphics tab in the left hand menu and click the Search Graphics button or choose one of our customizable Basic Shapes. The Search Graphics button will open our Graphic Library, where you can search hundreds of vector graphics to add to your post. Click on any that you'd like to use, then close the menu to see the selected graphics loaded into the Your Graphics section ready for you to add to your design.
From here, you can drag and drop the graphics on to your post and adjust their Color Overlay, Opacity, and more in the Graphic Properties menu that appears. We’ve added some stars to draw attention to the focal point of the graphic.
Rather delete some of the design elements on your template? You can easily remove items clicking on them and pressing the Delete button in the bottom left corner of the Properties menu.
Once you’re finished with your Instagram Post, click the Save button at the top of the page and choose your destination.
In addition to saving your final Instagram Post to your Computer, we also recommend choosing the Save As Project feature to save your finished template in editable format. That way, you can reopen the project and easily swap out the text and photos for use in future Instagram Posts.
