Instagram, the ever-evolving social media giant, has once again revolutionized the way we share our stories. The latest addition to its arsenal is the AI-powered Backdrop feature, a tool designed to transform the backgrounds of your Instagram Stories with just a few taps. While currently only available in the U.S., users worldwide are eagerly anticipating its global release.
How It Works: to embark on your creative journey with Instagram’s AI Backdrop, follow these simple steps:
Step 1: Take your photo
Begin by capturing a photo, ensuring that the subject – perhaps your face or another focal point – doesn’t occupy the entire screen. Leave some space for the AI magic to unfold.
Step 2: Get AI involved
Locate the AI button at the top of the screen, the first option in the list of five. Click it, and watch as the AI works its magic with its signature sparkle grid. It will outline the subject of your photo and ensure your satisfaction.
Step 3: Type in what you’d like to add
Express your creativity by typing in a prompt like “chased by dinosaurs” or “surrounded by puppies.” The AI will then generate imaginative backgrounds, accompanied by its characteristic sparkles.
Step 4: Choose your fighter
Instagram’s AI will present you with two options for your final background. Pick the one that resonates with you the most, and seamlessly add it to your story. To make it even more engaging, Instagram generates a prompt for your followers to join in on the fun.
Post and Share:
Once you’ve posted your creatively enhanced image, a ‘Try it’ sticker will appear, encouraging your friends to explore the Backdrop feature for themselves. It’s a delightful way to spark creativity and engage your audience in a new and interactive manner.
