A TIKTOK user known for his Instagram tips reveals how you can make your Instagram Stories more exciting.
In a short video, self-proclaimed ‘marketing pro’ @valerie_lisitsyna shows you how to create a transparent background effect on Stories.
she starts Video Instructing: “Open the stories and choose a color you like.”
You’ll also need to load the photo or video you want to post to your story before choosing a color.
To choose a color option, go to the top right corner and click on the wiggly line.
You can also hold down the color to see more options.
Once you’ve chosen a color, Instagram Pro says: “Make sure you choose the third marker option and hold down the screen and as you can see it’s a transparent background.
At this point, you should notice that your entire screen has become the color you selected, but you can still make out the image below.
TikToker continues: “After you’ve added the color you’d like, use the eraser tool to erase and create a see-through design for your story like the one here.”
Then she demonstrates how you can use the eraser to create patterns on a transparent background that create a cool effect.
The eraser tool can be found in the upper-right corner next to the “Done” option.
Once you’re happy, click “Done” and then you can post to your stories or send them to a friend.
Your story should look like the original image has been faded out and you can use an eraser or write words over it to highlight some points.
The effect is as if you are writing words on a blazing mirror.
