Have mercy - Instagram finally enables you to upload landscape, panorama and portrait-oriented photos and videos! Yey!
Instagram users are happy. The popular capture & share photos platform announced it's making way for another aspect ratio. The famous square is not saying goodbye, though, only welcoming landscape and portrait-oriented (that's rectangles right there) images and videos.
Instagram's 'square' philosophy therefore remains, but the long-lasting wish of many users, who wanted to capture more than just a special moment in a square, has been granted. The company understands that "the visual story you're trying to tell should always come first", so they are giving their users more creative freedom, not to mention opening their platform to more advertising options.
Instagram is one of the most popular social networks in the world today. Over 75 million users share their favorite life-loving moments on a daily basis, over 300 million use the app every month. Instagram just made their experience even more fun, easier to use and more tailored to users' needs.
So, go on, update your Instagram account, install the Layout from Instagram app and start editing your photos exactly the way you've always wanted to.
