If you’ve had a few people tell you that your Instagram reels need work, there are some quick fixes that will solve this. Reels are the best way to show off all of your hard work in one simple video, but they don’t have to be just a boring photo slideshow. In this post, we are going to teach you how to make an Instagram reel that looks professional and polished while still showing off your personal style.
3rd party tools
There are many ways to create professional videos on Instagram, but the best way is to use a video editing software. These tools allow you to merge different clips together and add music and text overlays. There are many free or paid options available online (some even let you use their free trial version for a week), but this is one of the easiest ways to get started with creating video content for your Instagram account. Cloud video editing software allows you access from any device so long as it has an internet connection—making it ideal for people who travel a lot or have trouble getting into their own office setup regularly.
Instagram offers a huge variety of effects you can use to make your videos and photos more interesting.
You can add multiple effects to both videos and photos, so don’t feel like you have to choose one or the other. Just because you’ve decided to make a video doesn’t mean that your photo needs to be plain—you can still add an effect! You can also mix and match different types of effects with different kinds of content in the same reel (for example, adding bokeh for a portrait shot).
Once you’ve created your reel, it’s time to add some music. To add music from your computer, simply copy the URL of the track you want and paste it into the “add audio” box on Instagram’s website. If you’re using a different service like iTunes or Amazon Music that automatically puts an “iframe” player on the page when you click on their links, just click that link instead of copying and pasting into Instagram’s box (our example shows how we would add SoundCloud tracks). This will automatically stream it as soon as our video plays.
Obviously using the mobile app is super intuitive, just search for the song you want. The more popular songs will add a timestamp that people are mostly using for that particular song, but you can adjust that, as well as the length of the audio that you need.
You can add text to your Instagram reel in the same way you would any other Instagram post. Just tap the “T” icon and type a few words to get started. Adding a hashtag to your caption is a great way to get more engagement and exposure.
Instagram reels are a great way to showcase your best moments and get more followers. It’s not always easy, but with the right tools and technique, you’ll be able to create your own reel in no time. The most important thing is to have fun with it!
