About This Class

Instagram loves square images. Like really loves them. So how do you get a panoramic image into Instagram? The answer lies within the multi-image option of Instagram. While we can't get an panorama in on it's own, we can break it apart using Adobe Photoshop and re-assemlbe it inside of Instagram. 


The result is a seamless array of images that acts like a panorama but is just a series of square-based images.


I'll show you step-by-step how to get your panorama into a series of perfect squares and exported out of Photoshop. I'll also use Dropbox to move my photos from my computer to my iPhone. You can use air drop or other syncing utilities to achieve the move, but I used Dropbox in my example. 

You will need for this tutorial:

  • A panoramic image
  • Adobe Photoshop (nearly any version)
  • Dropbox (or a syncing utility to your phone)
