Description

William Shakespeare Instagram Profile

Want to use social media in the classroom but it's blocked? Never fear, use these templates to create Instagram profiles or photo uploads from famous people from history, fictional characters or today's celebrities, politicians and sports stars.

These Instagram templates will allow you and your students to create a fake Instagram post and/or an Instagram profile. Editable components include the image(s), username, profile picture, post text, first comment, and number of photo uploads, followers and following.

You will need to have the Roboto font installed on your computer if you would like the font to best reflect the font used by Instagram.

I recommend downloading and loading this set of Instagram actions into Photoshop so you can apply Instagram-like filters to the photographs that you use in assembling a profile or photo. Credit to motheer-212. Check out this 'How to' on loading actions.

Students will need to know how to insert images, move image layers, and edit text. What a great way to introduce them to these basic Photoshop concepts. Have fun!

hi, if you are confused about how to edit the text, this will clear things up. First you should have photoshop, if you wish to edit. You can edit off preview (mac), however, the original text is still there, which has happen to some of you. I suggest you use pixlr photoshop unless you have adobe photoshop. use pixlr editor. once you are in, view the layers. If you cannot find layers, click, view and then layers. There you will see the various layers, click on the ones, you would like to hide/delete. So by doing this, you can hide/delete the layers, such as insertusernamehere or insertlikershere , etc. Then click text, and add the text you wish to insert. Hope this helped ;)

Hi! I can download and open each of these...but I can't figure out how to edit the editable components. The files are psd files. I can create a text box and type over things, but I can't actually change the text that is on the template. I'd love advice! Thanks.

I can't get it to work either. I tried both PC and mac, and neither one will open the link. Is there a trick I'm missing?
