I just purchased an Instagram account, so I was wondering how to get started.
How do I use it?
If you’re a new Instagram user, here’s the easy way to get the account up and running: Register for an Instagram Plus account (or get the free account if you’re already a Plus subscriber).
Sign up for an email newsletter from Instagram.
Once you receive an email with instructions on how to sign up, log in to Instagram to get your Instagram Plus email.
The account will give you access to your profile, photos, videos, comments, likes, and shares.
To add an Instagram profile, click on the “More” menu at the top of the page.
Select “Add New Account.”
In the “Account” menu, click the “Manage” tab.
Enter the Instagram username and password that you provided in the email.
Click “Create Account.”
Once you’ve created an account, you can use it to add photos, upload videos, and share content.
Once logged in, you’ll see an overview of your photos, which you can swipe through to view photos you’ve previously uploaded or viewed.
You can add content from your photos directly to your Instagram account by dragging it from your timeline into your photo albums.
You’ll see a list of your favorite people, albums, and posts.
Click on “View Photo Albums” to view the photos you have in your photos and albums.
Click the “Like” button to comment on a photo, then select “Like this photo.”
Click the “+” button at the bottom of the screen to share a photo with friends.
When you’ve posted, you may want to click on a picture in your albums to view a list or the post.
To remove a photo from an album, click “Delete Album.”
You can also add a photo to your “Instagram Friends” list by clicking on “Add Friend.”
To edit a photo’s title, select the photo and click on “Edit Title.”
To view photos in your album, swipe from the top-left corner of the album.
Once a photo is added to your account, it will be available to you to view.
When the photo is visible, you’re ready to share.
To delete a photo (or any other photo on Instagram), swipe from your right-side corner of your screen to the bottom-left and select “Delete Photo.”
You’ll have to sign in to see the photo in your photo library.
To change your account password, click your account icon on the top right of the photo’s screen.
Then, click Change Password.
