Honestly , I don’t use instagram these days but I never knew that the pic could be squared like this. I’ll pass this info to my buddies. Thank you for sharing

I am very fond of making different styles of photos on insta.. this is very interesting I will surely gonna try… Thanks

I noticed it once but never thought to apply but as now I know the trick, I will definitely try it. Thanks for sharing 🙂

very useful post

After posting the splitting pictures,
How do i add post more regular pictures on IG because anytime I try to post another single picture it messes up the square one

I have this issue too. I now have to post my photos in blocks of three to avoid them ‘eating into’ the grid below. Does anyone have a better way?

This is cool!
