Were you worried that the tilting/ straightening option disappeared after that last big update? Can’t bear to post a picture that’s not perfectly centered and balanced? Don’t worry, the handy Adjust tool is still there…sometimes.

Once Instagram starting allowing photos without that weren’t perfectly square, things got sort of funky. However, if you still want to post a traditional, square, 1:1 ration photo, the Adjust tool will still be an option during the editing process.

4. Direct Message

Are you using Instagram Direct yet? This handy tool is Instagram’s very own direct messenger, which allows you to share and send photos or just chat with contacts or other IG users.

From your home feed, just select the box option at the top right of the screen, and share and chat away. Rather strike up a conversation with someone you’re not following/ vice versa? On their profile, select the “…” option at the top right, then “Send Message.” Just play nice!
