This is actually one of my fave Insta tips to share, but I’m only just adding it to the blog now because I thought it was common knowledge. As it turns out, in the last few weeks I’ve spoken to SO many people who didn’t realise you could even do this. So here’s how you update your Instagram Highlight Covers without adding them to your story first:
1. Create your highlight, or click on an existing highlight.
2. Tap …MORE in the bottom right corner.
3. Tap Edit Highlight.
4. Tap Edit Cover.
5. Choose your cover: you can either select a different photo from within that highlight, OR tap the little photo icon (bottom left) and your entire camera roll will open.
6. Tap Done.
7. Tap Done.
8. Tap Done.
Highlight Cover updated.
So whether you’ve purchased some pre-made Instagram Highlight Covers or created some beautiful ones of your own with Canva, you can update them seamlessly and without cluttering up your stories. As long as you’ve saved them to your camera roll, you’re good to go! *cue angels singing*
