Photo collages help you place your pictures in one frame. But before Instagram layout option came out, the users had to go for another app, that maybe third-party app, for making collages and then uploading it on Instagram along with some editing. But now Instagram offers its users with an add-on option called layout. This has made things so much easier. Now you can fit your multiple images together in just one frame.
Open your Instagram account if you have one. Log in with your username and password. Just make sure that you have updated your Instagram to its latest version. Tap on the camera or maybe plus icon which is located on the bottom of your mobile phone screen. After tapping it, a page will be displayed from where you get an option to upload pictures and videos. If you are an iOS user, you will get an option of library and if Android user, gallery option will be displayed. It is located on the bottom left corner of your mobile screen.
There will be a small icon of layouts at the bottom right of the screen or photo review window. It will be displayed as a square which would be divided into three sections. Tap on it, and you will see a box with a dialog on it asking you were to download the layout whether from an app store or play store.
Now tap the installing option. Since this app belongs to Instagram, it would be safe to download it. After layout app has been downloaded, device will itself take you to the main app i.e. Instagram. It will only happen in android devices but if you’re an iPhone user, you must tap on open.
After you open it, a mini tutorial will teach you how to use it. Tap so that you get started. Now you will be taken to the gallery. Make sure you allow your app to access your photos. Select photos which you want to be combine in one frame or collage. Now select a layout of your choice. You can now tap the collage so that you can edit it. If you want to resize you photo, you can do it by dragging its edges. Select a border so that your picture would be separated by a white border. Now save the image. Open your Instagram, you can even open it through the app drawer. Then tap the camera or plus icon from where you can select the picture and edit it. Use a filter of your choice that suits your picture. Next you just must tap on the share, and it will be shared with your Instagram followers.
If you want each collage picture to be edited differently or have a different filter on each picture, then you must edit each picture individually. Save the newly edit pictures to the camera roll of your phone and then upload it on Instagram so that your Instagram followers can view and comment.
