That, however, does not mean you can not make better Stories, with a most beautiful design, text and effects . And that’s what you’re going to learn to do today!
In this article you will find the one that, for a server, is the best app to ‘lay out’ stories .

Canva is a web tool that has been online for years. This allows spectacular images without the user having design knowledge. The web version is tremendous, but it’s that the application is even more , especially if you like Instagram. Why? Because it has a section called “My stories” It has several templates that you can edit with your photos to make them look much better.
When you open Canva you will find different sections with different formats: Post and covers for Facebok, square images for social networks, posters, flyers and, below, stories. In this section you will find some templates in size 1.080 x 1.920 (FullHD) , most of them completely free. If you click on anyone you will start the editing process, through which I will guide you.
When you choose the template you want to use, Canva will tell you that touch something to start editing . In this case, the template that I have used has a background image and two text boxes. If you click on the image, your gallery will appear below. In that way You can choose your own photo and change it . I used a photo I made a few days ago on the beach, but you choose the one you want to publish in the Stories.
The following is the text. If you click on one of the text elements you can change the typography (in my case it’s Bebas Neue, that I’ve changed it by Josefin Sans), the size of the letter , the alignment, you can put it in bold or italic, or all in uppercase or lowercase, the spacing between letters and, of course, the content . To do this you just have to press again and write what you want. I have set “If I fell it’s because I was walking, and walking is worth it even if you fall” , an appointment of Eduardo Galeano. By the way, if you press the “+” button on the bottom right you can add more text boxes, but remember, in design, less is more.

We already have the photo, but the text does not look too good . To fix this I will apply a filter. Let’s go to the dedicated section. To give it more color I have chosen the ‘Rosie’ filter, you choose the one that best suits you. Now, to make the text look better, the ideal is to blur the image a bit . Click on ‘Advanced’. A whole range of editing options that you can modify will be displayed. Change the parameters in such a way that the photo is still seen and you understand what it is, but you can read the text . I have blurred the image and I added a little vignette in the corners, but you play until you find the style you want to give it.
When you have everything ready, simply click on “Share” . That will save the image in your gallery. Now you just have to Go to Instagram and publish it as if it were a normal Story . You will publish the same image as before, but with another style and another ‘roll’ that will make it stand out over other people’s stories. And you have not taken even five minutes!
If you like the app, more you will like to know that it is completely free and that, unless you want, you will not have to pay a single euro for it. You can download it from the link below!
