People use Instagram for various purposes now. Marketers use this platform for their marketing campaigns, while many people use it only to share pictures and videos with their friends and families. However, Instagram originally introduced itself as a picture-sharing platform.
Instagram is still best known as a picture and video sharing platform. You can share a picture on Instagram that you took from your device’s internal camera app or other camera apps, or you can use Instagram’s in-built camera app.
We will show you how to take a picture on Instagram and share it as a post.
