Holy Crop! No more forced square crops – ever!
One of my biggest beefs about Instagram was the draconian forcing of my carefully composed and meticulously cropped image into a stupid – squared and centered form before I could share it on my Instagram channel. Well, Instagram has finally seen the light and will now allow portrait and landscape orientations in their postings to the popular image sharing network.
Here’s the press release from Instagram: No Square Crops
Although the filter previews at the bottom remain square, the preview area shows the Landscape image (and portrait as well) are in play! Compose well, compose correctly, share as your vision saw fit. Finally.
