To send a photo or video to specific people, tap the camera button to enter the same simple photo or video capture and editing screens. At the top of the share screen, you’ll see the option to share with your followers (“Followers”) or to send to specific people (“Direct”).

 To send using Direct, tap the names of the people you want to send your photo or video to, write your caption, tap “send” and you’re done.

If someone you’re not following sends you a photo or video on Instagram, it will go to your requests so you can decide if you want to view it.
