From the Share to menu to the top of the screen, tap DIRECT (see # 1 in screenshot listed below). Now faucet inside the Write a caption ... window, and type out your message (see # 2 in screenshot below).
When you're done composing your message, faucet OK.
Now scroll through your listing of Instagram calls as well as touch the circle next to their name to make sure that a green "check mark" appears. NOTE: you can pick greater than one recipient if you intend to share a message or picture with a group of people.
When you're ready to send out the picture as well as message, tap SEND TO (NAME).
When they open Instagram, they'll be presented with a notification on the "mailbox" icon as illustrated in the screenshot listed below.
Upon tapping that mailbox, they'll see that a new message as been sent out from you.
When they tap the message, it exists to them in the format illustrated below.
From here they can reply to your message.

The "blue bubble" (see screenshot) illustrates that the photo has actually been discussed (and also for how long ago).
When you touch the 'response' in your mail box, you'll be have the ability to view their reaction, and also continue the 'conversation' if you would certainly like.
