- 1. Tag other users to your story without ruining your photo
You’ve uploaded a photo to Stories and you want to tag someone, but is the image so flawless that nothing will be added? You have two other options. One is tagging after sharing. After sharing your story, go to the settings of that story by clicking on the three dots on the right bottom of your screen. Then, click to add mentions.
The other one is swiping the tag text to the outside of the screen. It will disappear even though you still have the tag. Easy peasy!
- 2. Maintaining photo and video quality
You have probably noticed how much the quality of photos or videos shared as stories on Instagram decreases. To minimize this quality loss, follow the “Settings > Account > Data Usage” path and enable the “High-Quality Downloads” option.
When you follow this path, the compression ratio applied when publishing a story will decrease. Although this does not make a huge difference, it significantly reduces the quality loss.
