HOW TO ADD A CUSTOM COVER IMAGE FOR INSTAGRAM GUIDES

Instagram Guides.

A new format for sharing content.

I really like this new update from Instagram, but theres one thing that's missing.

So whats possible? You can select your previous posts and share it as a guide - similar to a blog post, but inside instagram. You can also make a guide with content from other users.

But the problem is; theres no option to add a custom cover image.

This post will show you a simple trick to do it.

Here's how I created a guide with custom cover

Guides have 3 options to add a cover image

your posts : cover image from your posts.

saved : cover image from saved posts.

from guide : cover image from posts in guide.

The trick is simple

Think outside the box

Step 1 : Create a new profile

Step 2 : Add the template image

Step 3 : Save the post from your profile

Step 4 : Set as cover through guides.
