Instagram just crashed another new feature.

Backdrop is an AI-based tool that allows users to edit the background of their Instagram stories. For now, the feature is only available in the US, but users can use prompts to create different backgrounds on their Instagram Stories. Think about how you use most other AI-powered photography tools like Midjourney. Ahmad Al-Dale, who heads AI at Instagram, posted in Threads on Wednesday that users can search for something like “chased by dinosaurs” or “surrounded by puppies” and then their photo will show them being chased by dinosaurs or surrounded by puppies.

It works about as well as you’d think, which isn’t great, but it’s still fun.

Step 1: Take your picture

To use the feature, start by taking a photo. You’ll want the subject—in this case, my face—not to take up the entire screen, so there’s a little room for the AI ​​to work with.

Step 2: Turn on the AI

Click the AI ​​button at the top of the screen. This is the first option in the list of five. The AI ​​will then load up its signature little sparkly mesh before outlining the subject of your photo (me) and making sure you’re happy with it.

Step 3: Enter what you want to add

I chose “in the Wild West” but you can really choose anything. Now, Instagram’s AI will once again give you some sparkle while you wait.

Step 4: Choose your fighter

Finally, you will get two options for your final choice. Choose the one you like the most and add it to your story. Instagram even generates a prompt to let your followers join in the fun.

“And after you post, a ‘Try it’ sticker will appear when you share the created image, making it even easier for your friends to use the background for the first time,” Al-Dahle posted on Threads.
