How to Share Posts to Instagram Stories and How to Edit Them (2020)

I am the type of person that likes to shout from the rooftops when I discover a new tool or feature. 

& let me just say that when I discovered how to share posts to Instagram stories AND how to edit the background, I told everyone right away! 

Here is how to edit Instagram story backgrounds when you share a post:

  • Prepare the story template using your online design tool.
  • Add a large transparent circle to the middle of the template. 
  • Save the photo to your camera roll. 
  • Go to Instagram and tap on the paper airplane of a post you want to share.
  • Click on ‘add post to your story’.
  • Navigate from the Instagram app to your camera roll.
  • Copy the photo to your clipboard.
  • Navaiagte back to Instagram and the photo will pop up on the bottom left side of the screen.
  • Enlarge the template and make sure the transparent circle is centered on the post. 
  • Tap on the post to pull the post forward.
  • BOOM!

There you have it folks, how to edit the background of a shared post on Instagram stories!
