How to design Instagram Stories that captivate your audience

You can't expect to captivate your audience if the Stories you’re sharing aren’t captivating.

Want your Stories to stand out? Ask yourself: “what am I putting into them?”

If the answer is not much planning, designing, or thought, then that’s exactly what you’re going to get out.

The truth is …

You can't expect to captivate your audience if the Stories you’re sharing aren’t captivating.

So let’s change that!

We teamed up with our friends at Later.com (our fave scheduling tool) to bring you ...

An Instagram Stories Masterclass complete with actionable steps, tips, and tricks. (Woohoo)


What about JPEG’s?

These bad boys are ideal for the web. Social content, email, blog or banner; if it’s going online then it’s a safe bet to save it as a JPEG. The reason being that these files can be compressed to a small size for a quick share or download. Some of the image quality may get lost in the compression, but for web images this is usually okay.  

And then we have PDF’s

These are for when you’re ready to print. Most printers will ask for you to send your design as a PDF file as it is a universal standard. This is because PDF’s are the safest bet for keeping all your design components intact and avoiding any unwelcome surprises when transposing your design from a digital file to a tangible object.

And that’s it! There are more image file formats out there, but for the best of us who create and share awesome designs with Over, the above is all we need to know.

Good News: We recently released a new ‘Export Preview’ feature so now you can view your image in a specific format to make sure that it is right before exporting.
