With over 300 million people using Instagram, maybe it’s time to up the game and find new ways to stand out from the crowd. Here are a few tips to make your Instagram pics pop. 1.

Instagram's Creative Mastermind Gives This Advice on How to Shoot a Carousel Ad

A carousel is simply one post with multiple photos that users can swipe to view. When the feature—which is only available in sponsored posts—was introduced, marketers were interested in the idea of sequential storytelling and building a narrative through multiple photos. The ads were first launched in the U.S. In March and roll out in more countries next week. This week, Instagram released a handful of the first campaigns to use its carousels, including GM, CeaBrasil, Fido Mobile and Lacoste.

What those ads show is that there's more than one way to tell a story—narratives in three photos, for instance, or a number of images arranged to reveal one wide-angle ad, as was the case with GM. No matter which route a brand chooses, there are a few universal style tips to creating a proper Carousel Ad.

When Instagram introduced five new filters this past December, they were said to be met with “overwhelming excitement” from the community (and who could blame them, that new Ludwig filter is pretty brilliant). The response to the new filters was so positive that the company has announced the addition of three more filters to its lineup.

Instagrammers will also be happy to know that new filters will be introduced more frequently from now on. Here’s how the new filters — Lark, Reyes, and Juno — are described: “Inspired by weekend adventures outdoors, Lark, Reyes and Juno are a family of modern, subtle filters that brighten and enhance your photos in refined, beautiful ways. Lark desaturates reds while punching up blues and greens to bring your landscapes to life. Also a staple of Instagram these days are emojis.
