How to make Instagram highlight covers

Start either by creating a new highlight in which you want to put a custom highlight cover from your phone gallery.

How do you add highlights to Instagram photos

Now, simply tap the edit cover below the current highlight cover icon to proceed with changing it.

From the cover edition, it will be proposed by default to use as cover any picture from the current highlight gallery. It is possible to use any picture from the phone, by tapping the gallery picture, to select any icon stored on the phone gallery as a highlight cover.

Select the picture you want from the phone gallery, for example a picture that was not used in the highlight gallery, or an icon download on Internet, as a highlight icon cover picture.
