HACKING THE 24 HOUR INSTAGRAM STORY LIMIT

Back in August 2016 Instagram launched: Instagram Stories. Pretty much a copy-cat of Snapchat, allows brands to upload photos and video type content tha appears on top of Instagram users’ feed. However there are limitations that make planning Instagram stories challenging as you can only post photos or videos taken within a 24-hour time period.



Below are some easy hacks other marketers have kindly shared with us:

  • Screenshot an old photo so it comes back into the 24 hour period on your phone.
  • Change photo date with Pixelgarde app. It is free and you can pay $1.99  to remove their watermark.
  • Change the date of your video with iMovie App for iphones or VideoShow for Android phones.
  • Upload a photo or video to Instagram while on Airplane mode. Make sure you tap “Share.” Your photo or video will not post – cause you are on airplane mode – however Instagram will save a new copy of the edited photo or video to your Camera Roll. Then disable “airplane mode” and go to the image selector in Instagram Stories where the edited photo or video should appear. The make it live 🙂
