Free Instagram Story Highlights & How to add Highlights

What are Instagram Stories Highlights?


Unlike regular Instagram Stories that vanish after 24 hours, this feature allows users to show off their Stories after one day has passed. Think of Highlights as “forever Stories” that Instagram users can refer to every time they visit a profile.

They appear directly under your bio and above your Instagram feed.

You can think of Instagram Stories Highlights like a movie trailer for your Instagram feed. They’re a creative way to express yourself, show off products, drive traffic, or market your business!


How to Use Instagram Stories Highlights

and Save to archive

  1. Oh thank you for sharing these nice 21 images for story highlights. I could create a few in photoshop, could I? It shouldn’t be hard. But as stylish as yours, is difficult 🙂
