Instagram: methods to use the extent instrument in tales

Instagram apparently is testing a "level" tool in Instagram Stories that can be used to make sure you are holding your device straight before taking a photo or video. If you are one of the Instagram users who have access to this feature, our guide will show you how it works.

Note: These screenshots were taken in the Instagram application on iOS.

Step 1: On the Instagram Stories camera, tap the Level icon on the left side of the screen.

Step 2: Point your device at your subject and a layer will appear on the screen. As you tilt your device left and right, the plane moves to show how far away you are from holding your phone straight.

Step 3: Tilt your device until the flat line is straight and a yellow rectangle appears on the screen. That way, you'll know you're holding your device straight. Then you can take a photo or video when you know your shot is level. Note: if you use the Layer tool while recording a video, the layer will remain on the screen while recording so you can keep that position.
