It is not an unknown fact that a lot of hard work goes into a single Instagram post. This popular social networking app gives you the option to draft the photos you edited. That way, all your hard work is saved. Here, we have discussed here how to save, access and remove drafts on Instagram.
How To Save Drafts
Instagram’s draft feature is a useful option to save your edited pictures at one stop. You can edit any media and save it or edit further in the future.
- Once you launch the app and go to the post photo option, select the media you wish to upload.
- After making the required changes to the post, you can exit the editor with the option “save draft” or discard. If you choose the former option, your media will be saved directly into the drafts gallery with all the editing.
A point to be noted here is that the app will only save a draft post which has been edited. If you do not edit your picture, the “save draft” option will not appear.
But what to do in case your draft gallery becomes redundant or you just wish to delete some posts? Here’s a guide on how to remove drafts on Instagram.
How To Access Drafts

- You will find your library media divided into sections named “All Photos” and “Drafts”.
