    On the home screen, we need to find the Instagram tile.
    Mine is located at the bottom left. It has a navy blue background and a white outline of the Instagram logo which is a camera in the middle. If you do not have the Instagram tile pinned to your home screen, then swipe left and find it in the applications menu. Once you have located the Instagram tile, press down on it so that we can enter the application.

    Now we want to take a photo.

    Next options we have are to scale and crop the photo.
    There is a grid with two vertical and two horizontal lines on your image. This is a rule of thirds framing grid. It splits into nine sections that are all the same size. The rule of thirds is used to help frame a photo; the lines help frame points of interest.

    We can move the image around by pressing and holding down on the screen.
    Frame the image in a way that you would like. My image is not the biggest, therefore we do not have a lot of room to work with but we just want to frame it so that the colorful beach huts are visible.
