Instagram is the photography and social media application that everyone uses; either on a personal or business level, or sometimes even both. They recently updated its application and now it is more user-friendly and feasible to work with. Here are 3 things about Instagram’s new update.
- There are Two New Formats: Instagram announced that the app’s new features allow users to upload their content in full size (landscape or portrait format) as well as the original square. You can find the “format” button above the camera roll in the app when you upload a photo or video.
- It’s Good for Users: Instagram said that nearly one in five pictures currently posted to the app is not in square format. Apps like Squareready, no crop for instagram, and others have been attempting to fix this problem for a while, but since instagram now has the built-in ability to tailor format the picture; this will make the app much easier to use.
- It’s Great for Video: With the addition of landscape orientation, videos can now stream in widescreen without the use of an external application like instashot. This allows both users and brands to be more creative and cinematic in their video uploads. Without the previously enforced cropping, a whole new world of video is now available to Instagram.
