When you have StorySwag Pro, the watermark will be removed from your posts.
You can change the style’s fonts by tapping the button above the text box when it’s selected.
Try breaking up your text into multiple slides, we find the optimal amount of words on a slide is 10-15 words.
On the editing screen, double tap on the image, make sure to avoid tapping on the text layer. This will take you to a image edit screen, where you can pinch / zoom / rotate / reposition the image.
Stories are limited to 3 slides because Instagram Stories only allows up to 15 second clips. Slideshows can contain up to 8 slides, the maximum for StorySwag.
Instagram stories only allows up to 15 second clips, so each slide in our app takes up around 4-5 seconds depending on the template. To be safe we recommend limiting each story video to 3 images.
Tip: IG now automatically cuts up longer videos added to Stories. To use this feature, use the Instagram app to create a story by tapping the Camera icon in the top left of the home screen. Select your exported StorySwag video and the next screen will automatically split the video.
Instagram automatically uses the first frame of the video as its the thumbnail, but you can manually select your own. Follow these instructions on how to set a custom cover thumbnail for your video: https://www.lifelapseapp.com/blog/how-to-change-an-instagram-video-photo-cover
Are the songs you purchased from iTunes or your own music? If the music is from Apple Music (streaming service) they will all have DRM on them which makes them unavailable to use in 3rd party apps. This is something we do not have control over, DRM is a copyright technology used by Apple to avoid copyright infringement.
Tip: make sure you purchase your song so you have the appropriate rights to distribute the music. You can do this by purchasing the music from the iTunes Store.
You can always download your app again for free. Just make sure you’re logged into the App Store with the same email ID you originally used to purchase the app. More info for iOS - https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201272
