When your feed looks great, people will be more likely to follow you and like your photos.

Having a themed Instagram is a huge trend these days, and it’s for good reason. Themed Instagram feeds are simply more attractive in general and are just nice to look at. It almost gives the page a personality in a way and allows you to showcase your own personality or the essence of your business or influencer profile.

Here’s a few tricks for creating a themed feed:

Crop Your Photos

Cropping your photos in the same manner is one simple way to achieve cohesiveness on your Instagram. Many people shy away from creating complicated color schemes because it can get quite tedious, however, cropping is something that an app can do for you.

Simply download a picture editing app that suits your preferences and put all of your photos into it prior to posting. Then, crop them the using the same dimensions and there you have it: a makeshift Instagram theme.

Color, color, color

Aside from cropping, color schemes are also an option. Everyone loves a colorful Instagram feed, but let’s face it, we are not all professional photographers. Despite that, we know what reflects our own personal style well. Whether the style is vibrant, grungy, moody, black, chic, tropical, white, boho, or anything in between, they have colors or color schemes that are associated with them.

By using a color scheme, you are essentially allowing your followers to expect something from you. Thus, if your feed is more cohesive, you’ll attract followers who resonate with it. In addition, you can focus on the tone of the photo rather than making sure every one of your photos contains the same vibrant red or crisp, pristine, white shade.

You can create a beachy tone by using a variety of blues and greens. You can also make your feed have a warm tone by using yellows, oranges, and whites in your photos and feature a lot of natural light. On the other hand, a dark and vampy tone can be created using blacks and deep purples. The options are endless.


Another option for curating your own personal Instagram theme aside from color is making sure that you balance out your photos. If you do not want to take the time to create a visually stimulating color scheme, you can just make sure avoid posting the same type of photo several times in a row.

For example, if you decide to post a selfie, try to post a picture of scenery or food the next day so that the picture sequence varies. You can also shoot your photos at different angles to create balance as well without straying away from your style or theme.   


Finally, captions also enhance the photo and allow engagement with your followers. Leaving the photo without a caption removes the sense of your personality from the photo. In addition, captions can provide a further explanation of the photo by letting your followers know why you posted it in the first place or how it fits in with the rest of you feed.

Captions can also add humor to the photo. Since many people take Instagram too seriously sometimes, you can add captions to your photo that point something out that unexpected, make fun of yourself, or even just put something that is relatable for your followers to resonate with.
