Looking for some good Instagram captions for selfies? Well, since we can’t help you take the photo, the least we can do is provide you with some fun ideas for the words. And we have lots of options.
Self-portraits go way back to 1839 when Robert Cornelius took the first. But old Robert didn’t need to know what to say for the caption. Everyone knows a dud caption can take down an excellent photo. We won’t, we repeat, we won’t let that happen to you!
So, don’t leave it to chance. Review all the options here and select the winning words.
This first batch of the Top Dozen Captions was generated by our expert panel for those folks in a hurry. But, if you have more time, please review the whole page of options.
