To begin, I opened Instagram on my smartphone and also below's what I saw:


It's a little bit confusing, however the switch under that's highlighted in blue? That's not the current sight you have, despite the fact that that's absolutely a common user interface convention. You get on the primary feed which is accessed by the home button on the lower left. Strange, I know.

Tap on the camera symbol under-- facility!-- with heaven emphasize. Now your camera will trigger as well as you'll see a sneak peek of the picture you will take:


To take a picture, faucet on the blue button. Making a (brief) video, faucet on the video camera symbol to the right of the button. Faucet on the left switch and also you could access your existing photos on the phone (exactly what I usually make use of, utilizing the routine phone camera app for taking the picture).
