Type your first caption in the text box that appears on the screen. Stay creative with your words, use emojis, and add relevant hashtags to make your caption stand out.

You can customize your first caption by changing font style, color, and size by tapping on the text and using the editing options on the screen. Play around with different combinations until you’re satisfied with the look.

Tap the “Aa” icon again and repeat the process to add a second caption. Once satisfied with the caption, tap “Done” to return to the main editing page.
