Boomerangs are fun to photograph, but very difficult to identify. Now you can cut the boomerangs and add cooling effects for that perfect jumping effect every time. Here’s how to cut and edit Instagram Boomerangs on iPhone and Android.
Open Instagram on your smartphone. Swipe left or tap the camera icon in the upper left corner to open the interface of Instagram stories.
Here, slide your finger on the bottom row and then press «Boomerang». In the Boomerang interface, tap the Trigger button to register a Boomerang.
After registering a Boomerang, you can preview it in the Instagram Stories editing interface. Here you will find familiar tools for adding text, GIFs and more.
Find the new Boomerang button in the top toolbar and then tap it to access the new Boomerang editing interface.
The classic boomerang continues to play in the background, but the interface will change to display a timeline at the bottom of the screen.
You can move the handles at both ends of the timeline view to the center of the screen to cut the Boomerang. Just move a handle where you want the Boomerang to start or end.
The trimming function is available in all modes. To switch to slow motion mode, tap the slow motion button or swipe left in the row above the timeline. In slow motion mode, Boomerang plays at half speed.
Swipe left again to switch to Eco mode, which adds motion blur to each frame, creating a double vision effect.
The last mode is called Duo, which quickly scrolls your video and adds a glitchy transition effect.
When you’re happy with the Boomerang effects and cutouts, tap «Done» in the upper right corner.
Now, tap «Your Story» at the bottom of the screen to add your Boomerang directly to your Instagram story.
If you want to save Boomerang and share it on another platform, tap the Download button at the top.
Now that you know how to make cold boomerangs, take a look what else can you customize on Instagram.
