Photo-sharing app Instagram has introduced a new feature which allows you to save posts as drafts.

The new feature will make it easier to post your photos hours, days or weeks after you took them. Instagram tells you just how to use the drafts feature on its help page.

Saving a draft on Instagram is easy

The idea is to allow you to create a post before saving it to post at a later date.

To start making your draft, tap the camera icon at the bottom of the Instagram app before taking or uploading a photo or video. Now add any effects or filters that you want as you normally would.

Write the perfect caption and add the photo location. Now go back to the editing step and hit the back arrow in the top left of the screen.

An option to save draft will appear at the bottom of the screen. Press here and go back to post your photo when you feel like it.

One important thing to note is that you won’t be able to save a draft unless you edit the photo, tag people, or add a caption or location.

Photo-sharing app rolls out various new features

To see which posts you have saved as drafts, tap Library. Your drafts will appear at the bottom of your screen.

According to Instagram the new feature is meant for people “trying to create a post that’s just right.” It looks like a helpful addition for social media managers who would like to make a queue of posts.

All Instagram users can now use the drafts feature after it underwent beta testing earlier in September. As a server-side update the drafts feature will not require you to update the app.

The Facebook-owned app used to focus on providing interesting photo filters rather than lots of features. However drafts is the latest in a series of new features that have appeared of late, including pinch-to-zoom and the Stories section.

While some of these features have been welcomed, others haven’t been as successful. For example Instagram got rid of the unpopular Photo Map view earlier in September.
