You Can Now Post Horizontal Or Vertical Photos & Videos On Instagram [Video]

Instagram has just announced that you can now post both horizontal or portrait dimensions of your photos & videos to your feed without the need to crop them to square.

Today, we’re excited to announce that — in addition to square posts — you can now share photos and videos in both portrait and landscape orientation on Instagram. Square format has been and always will be part of who we are.


Now, when choosing a photo or video, you can tap the format icon to adjust the orientation to portrait or landscape instead of square.

Once you share the photo, the full-sized version of it will appear to all of your followers in feed in a beautiful, natural way.

To keep the clean feel of your profile grid, your post will appear there as a center-cropped square.

Instagram for iOS version 7.5 is available today in Apple’s App Store, and Instagram for Android version 7.5 is available today on Google Play.
