How To Change Instagram Highlight Covers

Instagram highlight covers are a great way to add a hint of style to your Instagram profile. By updating your highlights with Instagram highlight icons, you can set your page apart from others and get people clicking to view your Instagram stories.

If you’ve already added some of your stories as highlights to your page but haven’t updated them with nice cover icons yet, your highlights probably look a bit random and messy with snippets of the photos in your stories as the covers. Once you change these to styled covers, your profile will look so much neater and more professional.

How to change Instagram Highlight Covers

There are two ways to edit Instagram Highlight Covers – you can change your highlights without posting to your story, or you can add new Instagram highlights from scratch.

I totally have the lovely Vanessa to thank for adding heaps of her creative magic to my site, I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy with how my blog has looked! She was so professional and friendly, understood my style perfectly and made sure I had lots of gorgeous options to choose from when adding creative touches.
