How to create highlights with Instagram Highlights

It’s nice that Instagram Stories are temporary… as long as you don’t want them to be permanent.

Let us introduce you to Instagram Highlights, which allow you to take content from your Insta Story or archive and place it in its little “Highlight” section on your profile.

Did something significant happen that you captured in your story? To get engaged? Starting a new job? Going to a concert? If it’s in your Story, you can turn it into a Highlight to review when you go to your profile. Here’s how to make one.

There are several ways you can start, but before you get there, the first thing you need is an Instagram story from which to get your highlight . Once you have it, you can access several ways to turn it into a highlight.

1. Go to your profile page and, under “Story Highlights”, tap the “+” button to add a Highlight.

Go to your profile page and press the “+” button in the top right corner. Then tap “Highlight Story”.
