  2. Select the colour dropper and pick a colour from a nearby background to change the hashtag colour.

Hide hashtags behind GIFs or Emojis

(Other Story elements like the location tag and music stickers will work for this method).

  1. Add your hashtags in a single text box.
  2. Choose a GIF, sticker or emoji.
  3. Then, Simply drag the GIF or sticker to cover the hashtags. Done!

Minimize hashtag text size
