Add Photo to Instagram from Image Gallery on LG L70
Edited by Hotelier, Rushell, Eng
Hello and thank you for watching VisiHow. Today, we will show you how to add a photo from your Photo Gallery to your Instagram account on your LG L70.
To begin, we'll unlock the telephone by pressing the top right-hand side button.
Then at the lock screen, swipe up one time to get to the home screen.
In this demonstration, we have "Instagram" already loaded on the home screen, since we use the application a lot.
If the Instagram icon cannot be found on the home screen, it can be accessed by pressing the "Apps" icon at the bottom right corner of the screen. It is a gray box with several small white squares inside of it, and it's labeled "Apps" underneath.
Tapping on that icon one time brings up a list of all the applications that we've loaded onto the phone.
Swipe right or left to scroll through the list and find the icon for "Instagram". The icon is an image of a camera.
Tap on that camera icon one time to open the Instagram application.
As Instagram opens, it may show a message to confirm the email addressed that was set up to be used on the account. If so, just press the "OK" button to continue.
To add a photo, we can press the center icon at the bottom of the screen. On the example phone screen, it is already highlighted in blue. It looks somewhat like a camera or a square with a circle inside.
Now, we can add from the "GALLERY", take a new "PHOTO", or a new "VIDEO" by tapping on one of the options at the bottom of the screen.
To add a photo from the Gallery, swipe the screen up to scroll through and find a photo we would like to add.
Choose a photo by tapping on it.
We can move the photo by pressing down on the screen and dragging. We can choose exactly what position of the photo we would like to appear. A normal photograph is too wide for the allowance or Instagram.
Once we've positioned the photo, tap to select the blue arrow in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
Now, we can "EDIT" the photo.
First, we can select from all of the Instagram filters by tapping on the various ones located at the bottom of the screen.
After choosing a filter, we can tap on the icon at the far right side of the screen just above the filter photo thumbnails. This will take us to our Settings, and some new icons will appear at the bottom of the screen.
Tap on the second icon to change "BRIGHTNESS".
Slide the blue dot left or right, and then press the check mark at the bottom right.
"CONTRAST" is changed in the same way.
We can slide the blue circle to adjust the "CONTRAST". Move the blue dot to the left to minimize it or to the right to increase it.
When we're happy with the results, press the check mark on the bottom right.
If we don't want to make the change, we can also click on the "x" at the bottom left.
At the bottom of the screen, we can swipe across to reveal more icons for more adjustments to make to the photo.
When we're finished making all of the changes that are available, and we're happy with the way the photo looks, we can once again press the blue arrow at the top right-hand corner of the screen to advance to the next part of the process.
Now, we can "SHARE" this photo with our followers.
We can "Write a caption" by tapping directly on that option at the top. Then type right over the words, "Write a caption".
If preferred, we can also "Tag People" in our photograph.
We can "Add to Photo Map" by sliding across the radio button next to that option.
Scroll down just a bit, and we can also "SHARE" the photo with other social networks by tapping to select them.
Once we are satisfied with the changes, we can select the check mark in the blue box at the top right-hand corner of the screen.
It will then load the photograph, and now we can see the photograph has been added. It appears in our "Instagram" feed.
To close the application from here, we can press down on the bottom center button on the phone. This will take us back to the home screen.
This will conclude our presentation on how to add a photo to Instagram from the Photo Gallery on the LG L70. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please leave the in the space below. Thank you for watching VisiHow and have a great day.
