To start, I opened Instagram on my mobile phone and here's exactly what I saw:


It's a little bit complex, however the switch on the bottom that's highlighted in blue? That's not the existing view you have, although that's certainly a common interface convention. You're on the primary feed which is accessed by the home button on the lower left. Unusual, I understand.

Tap on the camera symbol under-- facility!-- with the blue emphasize. Currently your camera will trigger as well as you'll see a preview of the image you will take:
