White borders have become a popular trend on Instagram feeds, but getting creative with a variety of borders is also a great way to unify or diversify your feed. In this article, I will show you how to use Kapwing’s Instagram Border Templates in 3 easy steps:

  1. Pick your border
  2. Add you content
  3. Download and share

Step 1: Pick your border

Open Kapwing’s Instagram Border Template collection and choose your border. If you have something in mind you don’t see a template for check out these instructions for creating your own borders or chat/email us to request a template.

Once you’ve selected your border, click Make It. The template will load into the Kapwing editor, where you can upload media into the flames. For this example I used flames.

Step 2: Add your content

Click Replace to add your own content to the frame. Your photo or video will be added behind the border.

Drag and drop a video from your device directly to the rectangle or select “Click to upload” to select the files. This works for videos, photos and gifs. You can also paste a link from YouTube, Giphy, Kapwing itself, and many other websites to import a clip into the creator.

If you are uploading a video, you can trim it by selecting it and clicking Trim. If you want to add text you can do so by clicking Add Text. You can also resize the canvas for Stories(9:16), YouTube (16:9) or other social media platforms by clicking the resize button in the toolbar. 

Once you are happy with your border and the video/photo preview, click Done to process your media.

Step 3: Download and share

After a moment of rendering by the Kapwing kittens, your framed photo or video will be ready to download. Click Download to download it to your device or follow these instructions if you have an iPhone. You can now upload it to Instagram!

Add borders to everything!
