  3. After making edits then tap Next.
  4. After writing a caption, tap Tag People.
  5. Select Add Tag and select your contributors.
  6. Tap Show Profile Category to display the creator category.
  7. Choose the creator category and Tap Done.

While announcing ‘enhanced tags’ in a post, Instagram said “For creators on Instagram, proper crediting has never been more important, especially for marginalized and underrepresented creators and collaborators whose contributions are often behind the scenes. The enhanced tags on Feed and Reels will help creators to receive credit for their work seamlessly.”
