How to Update Instagram Story Highlight Covers (without posting them to your story)

Tech Tutorial

February 19, 2019

Instagram Highlights were introduced on Instagram in 2018, but they rolled out to users with no rhyme or reason. Previously you had to add an image to your story before you could update your highlight story cover but now you can update the highlight cover without posting them to your story.
 

Here’s how to Update Instagram Story Highlight Covers (without posting them to your story):

  1. Click on one of your Instagram Highlights.

  2. Tap the three dots for More “… More”.

  3. Tap on “Edit Highlight” then “Edit Cover”.

  4. Slide to the LEFT, tap on the image icon, and upload your highlight from your library. Tap done when finished.

  5. Repeat steps for the rest of your story highlights.

That’s it.

As far as creating Instagram highlights goes, there are a lot of options for these, I chose to keep mine simple with colors but you can create your own with software like Canva or photoshop, buy some from Creative Market like these, these or these Photoshop templates and of course, you can download free ones from Pinterest.

    Have you ever come across an issue when the cover images cant be changed? My designer has created new ones for me and I continually get a message saying "the photo can’t be processed correctly" we have resized them but still nothing works from my phone or my tablet….any thoughts?

    What if you are not editing an old highlight cover but creating a new one? Same process?
