If you're excited about this video, make sure you like this video, hit the subscribe button and the bell to be notified every time I post a new video, and with that said let's jump right in.
There are three different ways that you can change the background color on Instagram stories depending on the type of background you wish to add. You can change the default background color to a different solid color, change to a background color that is saved in your photo gallery or add a photo to your Instagram story and change the background color that goes along with it.
To change the default background color to a different solid color, first head over to your Instagram profile, click on the plus sign up top, and then on story. Take a photo, just to have a starting point for this process.
Click on the brush icon for highlighting. Choose a color you wish to add to your Instagram story background from the available options at the bottom of the screen. Press and hold your screen for a few seconds, and then you'll see the solid color of your choice applied to the background of your Instagram story.
If you have a specific color code that you wish to add as the background color of your Instagram story, you can do so by creating a design with that background color in Canva. If you don't have a Canva account yet, just click on the link in the description box below to try it for free.
After you've logged in to your Canva account, click on the search bar, and search for 'Instagram story'. Once that option populates, click on it, and then on 'create a blank Instagram story'.
Click on your Instagram story design at large, and then on the color picker up top. You can choose a color to add to your Instagram story background from your brand colors, from Canva's default colors, or use the search bar up top to search for a particular color, such as blue, or for a specific hex code, such as #00c4cc. Once that color populates, click on it to add it to your design.
Once you're done customizing your Instagram story background color, rename your Canva design up top. You can either download your Instagram story background color design on your computer, and transfer that to your phone, or download the Canva app on your phone, and directly save your Instagram story background color design to your phone's photo gallery.
To add this background color that is saved in your photo gallery to your Instagram story, head over to your Instagram profile, click on the plus sign up top, and then on story. Click on the photo gallery icon on the bottom left of the screen, locate the background color design you saved from Canva, and then click on it to add it to your Instagram story.
To add a photo to your Instagram story and change the background color that goes along with it, follow the same process you did to add a solid colored background to your Instagram story. Head over to your Instagram profile, click on the plus sign up top, and then on story. Take a photo, and then click on the brush icon for highlighting.
Choose a color you wish to add to your Instagram story background from the available options at the bottom of the screen. Press and hold your screen for a few seconds, and then you'll see the solid color of your choice applied to the background of your Instagram story.
To add a photo on top of this background color, we'll be following the same process we did when adding multiple photos in an Instagram story. If you haven't watched that video yet, I'll leave the link to it in the description box below.
Click on the sticker icon up top, locate the photo sticker, and select the photo you wish to add to your Instagram story. Repeat this same process with as many photos you wish to add to your Instagram story, or just leave it as is to have a photo with a background color of your choice.
