Highlight covers on Instagram are decorative covers for stories that you have saved to your profile. They are a great way to add a professional touch to your profile and make it easier for visitors to find the stories they are looking for.
You can make highlight covers with Canva, an easy-to-use graphic design platform. This tutorial will show you how.
First, go to Canva’s website. Create an account if you don’t already have one and then log in. Once you are logged in, select “Create a Design” from the top menu and then choose “Instagram Highlight Cover”.

Open Instagram on your mobile device and go to your profile page. Select the “+” icon next to “Edit Profile”. Choose “Choose Cover” and select the image that you just downloaded from Canva.
You can also add titles for each of your highlights when selecting a cover photo by tapping on each title bar at the bottom of this screen. When finished customizing, click Save, and you’re all done!
