Put the writings that move on Instagram from the app
In case you don’t know, Instagram offers animated writings that can be applied directly to the stories being published: just use the most updated version of the official app. In the event that the available writings do not satisfy you, know that it is possible to use third-party applications that also allow you to have animated writings on Instagram, albeit with slightly different results. Read on to find out all the details.
To put the writings animated on Instagram through the official application of the social network, the first thing you need to do is open Instagram and press on the thumbnail called Your story , located at the top of the screen, on the left .
Now you need to create a story. You have three options to do this: the first is take a photo in the moment , which you can do by pressing the circle icon located in the center of the screen. You can also change the camera to use to take a photo, simply by clicking on the camera icon , located at the bottom of the screen, on the right.
The second option is choose a photo from the Gallery . To do this, just click on the icon of the square , located in the lower part of the screen, on the left. Later, if you have taken a photo at the moment and have chosen to use one already present in the Gallery, you can access the Instagram text editor by pressing on the icon of the two Aa located at the top of the screen , right.
The third option available to you is to directly create a story with only written . If that is what you want to do, you have to press on the icon of the two Aa and you will be immediately taken to the text editor.
Once you have arrived at the text editor, what you have to do to have the animated text is to press on the icon of the A with two dashes . The last step to follow, therefore, is to choose one of the writings above the keyboard (each font corresponds to a different animation). To select one, simply press on its thumbnail .
Now all you have to do is type the text you want to compose your story and you will see that the animation will be applied to it you have chosen.
Now that you have having chosen the animated text you prefer, it’s time to publish the story . First, then, press the Send to key at the bottom of the screen, on the left. At this point, click on one of the Share buttons, depending on the visibility you want your story to have. That’s all: now your story with animated text is uploaded to your profile. Easy, right?
The only defect of the animated writings offered by Instagram is that, at the moment, there are only a few variations and each has a its default font. Using the animated text of the application, therefore, you have very little variety of choice.
If you want to have more types of animated text available, you must resort to the use of third-party applications .
In this regard, I recommend that you use Adobe Spark Post , one of the best applications for creating content on social networks. The application is available on both Android and iPhone / iPad . It’s free, but it also offers paid content: at a cost of € 10.99 per month or € 109.99 per year you can get various benefits, including additional templates, the ability to remove the Adobe Spark watermark, and the ability to add a logo.
If you have an Android device, you can download Spark Post via the official application page on the Play Store (or on an alternative store, if your device does not have the Play Store) by pressing the Install button; if you have an iPhone or iPad , you can download it from the official App Store page by pressing the Get / Install button and verifying your identity via Face ID , Touch ID or Apple ID password (if required).
When you have downloaded the application, therefore, the first thing you need to do is create an account to use it. Then press the Register for free button and fill in the required fields, that is Name , Surname , E-mail address , Password and Date of birth . Once this is done, click on the Register me button.
Now, to start creating a post, click on icon + and choose a background : you can choose between an image chosen by the application, simply by clicking on the Free photos tab, or an image taken from the your Gallery, via the Gallery tab. Finally, you can also choose to use a solid color background by pressing the Solid Color tab. When you have decided which background to use, press the Next button.
Now that you have chosen the background, you have to decide the size you want to give the Instagram story. To do this, simply click on one of the thumbnails that is offered to you. When you have decided, you have to press the END button.
You are now ready to create animated text. First, then, double-tap on the writing you see on your screen and type the text you want to appear in the story. When done, press the √ icon.
From here, you can also change various text settings, including which the writing character , the color and the size .
To change the font, press on the FONT tab, in order to view all those available. At this point, select the one that suits you best, simply by clicking on its thumbnail .
If, on the other hand, you want change the color of the text, you have to press the COLOR tab and then the Text button. Then choose the one you prefer by clicking on the box provided.
Finally, to change the size of the text, click on the FORMAT tab and drag the slider to the right or left, according to your preferences. When you have finished making the changes to the text, you just have to press the END key.
To animate the written you see on your screen, press the Animation button. From here, you can see all the animations available that you can apply to the text. To select one, just click on its thumbnail and you will immediately be able to preview it on your screen.
When you are satisfied with your choice, remove the watermark if possible (by touching it with your finger and pressing on Remove logo / watermark from this project ) and press the END key.
Now that the story is ready to be published, you need to press on the share icon, located at the top of the screen, on the right. In the screen that appears, press the Video button and then simply press the Stories button. By doing so, you will be redirected directly to the posting page of the stories on Instagram .
The last thing you have left to do, therefore, is to press the Send to button and then press one of the Share buttons, depending on the visibility you want your story to have. Once this is done, your story with animated text will be published on your profile in the form of a video. Seen? Nothing could be simpler!
Put the writings that move on Instagram on PC
You’re trying to put animated writings on your Instagram stories via your PC ? Unfortunately I have to tell you that, at least for the moment, it is not possible, as the desktop version of Instagram does not yet offer the possibility to create stories.
Alternatively, however, you can think of using an Android emulator, so that you can have the mobile version of Instagram also on your PC and use it to post stories (although not very convenient as a solution!). In this regard, I recommend that you rely on BlueStacks , one of the best Android emulators on the market. In case you don’t know how to download it, I’ll leave you to my guide, where I’ll explain how to download BlueStacks.
Once you have downloaded BlueStacks and configured it with your Google account , you need to install Instagram on the emulator. To do this, press the Google Play button, located at the bottom of the screen, on the left. At this point, in the search bar, type Instagram and then press Enter.
Then click on the Install button and when the app installation is finished, press on the Open button, to start the latter.
Now you need to login to your Instagram account. To do this, you must press the Login button and then fill in the required fields, that is Username and Password . Once this is done, click on the Login button.
As you can see, now that the mobile version of Instagram is installed on your PC, you can use the application exactly as you would use it on a mobile. For this reason, to put animated writings on Instagram on PC , you can follow the same procedures that I illustrated in one of the previous chapters.
