It’s that time again: Season review.
Ages ago, the season recap meant we had to collate our top 9 photos individually and squeeze them all into one image for our Instagram grid. Now Instagram offers a new option – a Reels template that allows users to create their 2022 recap and share it with their friends. It’s a fairly painless process.

1. Create a role

There are many ways to create a role, but I like to click the “Reels” button at the bottom middle of the home screen between the “Search” and “Shop” buttons. Then click on the photo icon at the top right of the screen.
2. Choose your template

Once you’ve created a reel, swipe right at the bottom of your screen. This will take you to the templates. There are four narration options here: Artist & Producer Bad Bunny, DJ & Producer DJ Khaled, Rapper & Producer Badshah, or Stranger Things star Priah Ferguson.

After choosing your template, replace the clips with clips from your own library. The easiest way to do this – if you want to post videos instead of photos – is to click the arrow next to “Recent” while selecting your images and selecting “Videos”. This will limit your options to videos only.
4. Publish the role
Step 4: Post your 2022 Reel Recap Credit: Screenshot / Instagram Reels
After selecting your images and videos, your reel will be automatically edited into a 2022 throwback. All you have to do after choosing your videos is share your reel! You can edit the cover, write a small message or post as is.
