How do I save a post as a draft on Instagram?

Once you start creating a post, you can save it as a draft and share it later:

  1. Tap at the top.
  2. Take or upload a photo or video and then tap Next in the top right.
  3. Add effects, filters, a caption or your location.
  4. Go back to the filtering and editing step, then tap the back arrow in the top left.
  5. Select Save Draft.

Note: If you don't edit the post, tag people or add a caption or location, you won't be able to save the post as a draft.

To see posts you've saved as a draft, tap at the top. Posts will appear at the bottom of the screen below Drafts.
