Hex Code

This feature is perfect for brands and users who have an exact color palette, as it allows you to enter a hex code to change the colors on any background or shape. Here’s how to use hex codes:

  1. Double tap on the shape or background you want to change.
  2. Tap on the hex code box to type in your code.
  3. Once you’ve typed in your hex code, tap Save.
    *Pro Tip: Keep your hex codes on file, and use the same 4-6 colors to stay consistent and on brand with your content.

Change Background Colors

All of our templates have a suggested color theme, but you can now customize even more sections on the template to match your brand. Double tap on the background areas and objects to change their colors using a specific hex code or by sliding through the color bar to find your perfect shade. *Note: There are still a few templates where you cannot change the color on certain parts of them because of the design.

Preview

Use our preview tool to glance over your Instagram Story designs before saving and sharing to Planoly or Instagram. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Once your design is finished, tap on the preview icon in the top right corner (it looks like a + plus sign with a circle around it).
  2. Your preview will open in a new window. Tap on the ‘x’ in the top left corner to go back to the editing screen.

These updates are just a small step of what’s to come with our continued progression on StoriesEdit. Look out for more updates and features that we will be sharing soon!
