Remember when the way you showed off your creativity on Instagram was limited to which filter you chose for your next post? Don’t know about you, but I was constantly debating between Aden and Valencia. Well now, as the Instagram experience has grown and evolved, we’ve shifted our focus from the feed to the story, swapping our scroll for the swipe as we hunt for fleeting moments of inspiration and entertainment.

That inevitably has meant more control and choice when it comes to how to present your content. But if you’ve tried your hand at creating an inspiring story on Instagram alone, you know that the font choices, layout options and filters are fairly limited and can quickly leave you wanting more (sorry Instagram, but it’s true).

Thankfully, Chroma Stories has created an app filled with custom themes, filters, backgrounds, animated stickers, and fonts — so you’ve got all the tools you’d ever need to create stunning and engaging stories. Instead of trying to create an inspiring story within creative constraints — Chroma Stories doesn’t limit your creativity, and allows you to create content that works for you.

With Chroma Stories — choice is your friend, whether it’s the 50 fonts to take your pick from, or the hundreds of templates to get inspired by. Plus, you can even take your story to the next level with Chroma Stories’ Motion tool, making it easy to bring your story to life by adding motion to your photos.

And now you can access the Unsplash Library in Chroma Stories

Whether you’re looking for a background image, or you’re in need of inspiring photos to use throughout your story — you can now access over 1 million beautiful images from Unsplash right in Chroma Stories.

​​To Use an Unsplash image in a layout:

  1. ​​Create a new Story project (or add a new page to a pre-existing project).
