Instagram COMPLETELY changes today!
After defining itself with square photos (and make them the norm) Instagram is updating its Android and iOS apps to allow full-size landscape and portrait photos and video.
The new images sizes will run alongside the traditional square photos will remain the default for photos shared on Instagram.
When accessing your photo gallery from within the updated app, there’s now a format button above the camera roll.
This button can toggle between square and full-size images. From there, you can zoom in and out to choose the best crop for your photos.
As reported by The Verge, Instagram’s own research says 20% of uploaded photos have been modified to fit into the square frame, often using a third-party app that adds a "letterbox" effect to enable the sharing of landscape pictures.
The update also unifies all video and photo filters!
