Users will find it simple and rewarding to customize Instagram's 2022 Recap Reel. Start by opening the app and pressing the + icon to begin a new post. Then, select 'Reel' from the post options.

Users can select templates featuring Priah Ferguson, DJ Khaled, Bad Bunny, or Badshah. Once one of Instagram's templates is chosen, tap 'Use template.'
Once the template is active, the user will be prompted to choose 15 pieces of footage from their phone's library to fill in the clips. Start by selecting a blank field to open the phone's media and select video. Since it's an Instagram recap, users might want to find the Instagram album in their media library. Instagram will indicate how many seconds the footage will last for each snippet. Keep adding photos and videos until the template is full. Now press the arrow at the bottom right to preview. Users can modify each clip by tapping on the segment, sliding the frame to the desired footage, and tapping 'Replace media.' Once the editing is complete, tap 'Next.' Additional post edits, like text and special effects, can also be added. Select 'Next' again to finish adding captions and sharing settings.
Instagram was thoughtful by letting individuals choose their favorite photos. By doing so, users don't have to worry about an algorithm doing them dirty and showcasing undesirable posts, like some competitors.
