- Share your fonts on your phone or to the application you are using for your IG stories.
- Install the fonts on your phone and then onto the application to use them exactly how they are
- Once your downloaded fonts are installed in your app or phone you can just navigate to them and use them accordingly.
Search for stock images and try to make your brand’s image
One of the considerable things on IG stories is the image selection and the way you overlap or use them in your stories. With Over feature you can easily overlay the images of your brand or from the stock images (available on websites like Pexel and Unsplash).
