Here’s How To Save An Instagram Post As Draft

Instagram has just added a handy little feature in its latest update, that lets users save a post as draft and come back to publish it later. The company pointed out to the new feature in a Tweet earlier today. Simply follow the steps below to save an Instagram post as draft.


Once you start creating a post, you can save it as a draft and share it later:

  1. Tap the camera icon at the bottom of the screen, then take or upload a photo or video
  2. Add effects, filters, a caption or your location
  3. Go back to the filtering and editing step, then tap the back arrow in the top left
  4. Select Save Draft at the bottom of the screen

Note: If you don’t edit the post, tag people or add a caption or location, you won’t be able to save the post as a draft.

To see posts you’ve saved as a draft, tap the camera icon again and then tap Library. Posts will appear at the bottom of the screen below Drafts.
