Instagram is making a huge change to the way photos and videos are posted on the platform: they no longer have to be square. What a time to be alive! Instagram popularized the square image format, so this is a pretty surprising move, but it’s sure to be appreciated by photographers that were previously upset at always having to crop their images for the platform.
- In addition to the shape changes, Instagram’s latest update will also allow you to do more custom editing on your videos.
- One more neat tidbit: to celebrate support for the landscape format, Instagram posted a new Star Wars trailer, which you can check out here .
- It’ll still appear as a cropped square in your profile grid (to keep things nice and tidy) but will show in the feed of your followers in the correct format.
