How to save Instagram Drafts

What is an Instagram Draft

An Instagram draft is an feature that allows users to save posts they are in the process of editing. This feature might seem simple but it’s very helpful for people who love Instagram photo editing and want to save the changes for sharing later. Drafts also allow users to save captions alongside drafted posts. The major benefit of this IG feature is never needing another tool to edit, save, or preplan posts. Instead, simply upload and edit images directly in Instagram’s native app and post when you’re ready. Below we’ll share exactly how to leverage this powerful but often underrated feature to be more productive on Instagram.

How to Use Instagram’s Draft Feature

Using this feature is very easy, read the steps below on how to save draft.

  1. Tap  at the bottom of the screen, then take or upload a photo or video
  2. Add effects, filters, a caption or your location
  3. Go back to the filtering and editing step, then tap the back arrow in the top left
  4. Select Save Draft at the bottom of the screen

Note: If you don’t edit the post, tag people or add a caption or location, you won’t be able to save the post as a draft.

To see posts you’ve saved as a draft, tap  and then tap Library or Gallery. Posts will appear at the bottom of the screen below Drafts.

How do I manage and share posts I’ve saved as drafts?

Once you’ve saved a post as a draft, you can share it the same way you would a new post. You can also discard posts you don’t want to share.

To share a post you’ve saved as a draft:

  1. Tap  at the bottom of the screen

Final Thoughts on Instagram Drafts

This feature is good for casual users who may be too busy to share posts at the moment. It’s also useful during an eventful day as the feature provides an option to decide which image to post later. We all know it’s not great etiquette to post 20 IG images at a time. Instead, this features provides some leeway to decide which posts are the best fit for your feed. More importantly, drafts are a simple in-app tool that provides the opportunity for consistency. Instead of going through the hassle of finding a feed planning tool then scheduling posts keep things simple with Instagram’s native features. Making the best use of in-app features can potentially help improve engagement while keeping marketing costs low and ensuring IG feeds are consistently active. We hope this simple but powerful write-up helps you grow your Instagram accounts with organic Instagram growth.
