Where are the stories on Instagram

You can also apply weather and time to the picture, however, choose they do not have to. If you downloaded photos or videos from gallery, the creation time of this file will be shown, that is, when you took it to the camera or threw it into the phone’s memory (from some cloud service, Dropbox, for example). I am so arrived with this photo, so I’m editing it in the morning, and the time, as you can see, set to 22 with something.

Weather on Instagram stories

I don’t know where the weather data comes from, I won’t lie, but the right ones are taken. ? I think where they come from, information, not principled for you.

You can change the appearance of weather, location, and time stickers: click on the sticker directly on the image and select the option that you like it better. Now for everyone, it seems, 3 are available options.

On the photo and video, except the weather, you can impose all sorts of sticker-glasses (for the New Year all kinds of Christmas trees, balls, deer, I think, for other holidays we will see something similar), emoticons. Stickers can be stretched on the image and video by two fingers, drag anywhere on the picture.
