Use your picture’s color palette for fun letter background

Every cool Instagrammer knows how important it is to have a visually consistent theme. A cool Instagram tip for Stories is creating unique backgrounds for your fonts that are based on the color palette of the photo you’re posting. To do that, you need to use the same technique with the drawing pen, described previously. First, select the picture you want to post and think of a word you want to write. It can be something short and simple. Then, click the text icon (“Aa”) on the top right corner and type the very first letter of the word. Make sure the font is Strong, Classic, or Typewriter. Next step is to add background to the letter by clicking on the icon on the top left corner. After this is done, click on the drawing pen icon, and you’ll see a little tool pop-up. By moving the tool around the photo, the background of the letter will change, depending on where you “land”. Once you’ve selected the background color for the first letter, move on to the next, until you type the word, letter by letter. It might sound like it’s time-consuming at first, but it’s faster than you think. Plus, it looks cool AND it visually matches the photo, creating a holistic look and feel for your content!
