For today’s video, I’m sharing a step-by-step tutorial of how I made an Instagram Reel with an overlapping graphic. This Reel was created using InShot, a free app that I LOVE for content creation like this. InShot is the easiest way I’ve found to create Reels like this. So, download InShot here (Apple & Android) and then let’s dive into today’s tutorial!
How to Create a Reel with Overlapping Graphics
First things first: once you’ve created your Reel, download the final video to your phone. You’ll need that to upload into InShot. Create a new video and then upload the video from your camera roll. Once that’s uploaded, we’ll be using the picture-in-picture option. It’s the little square with another square insided, labeled “PIP”. Select that and now you’re able to add another image or video from your camera roll. Once you’ve selected the second image, drag it to where you want it on the video. At the bottom of your screen, you can adjust how long it’s going to be on the screen – which probably depends on your Reel.
After you’ve reviewed it and are happy with how it looks, export it from InShot to your camera roll using the top upper right hand icon of the arrow pointing up. I usually adjust to 30 frames/second, but feel free to adjust as you need.
From there, you can post the Reel to Instagram by reconnecting the audio. If you need a tutorial on that, watch my video here! I hope that this tutorial was helpful and shows you how easy it is to create fun Reels like this!
