|Instagram Launches Layout, Its New Collage App
March 26th, 2015 by Jessica Cherok
||Instagram launched its new, freestanding app, Layout. Now you can create that photo collage you’ve always wished for.
The collage can be of up to nine photos, which are organized by Layout into sections. Users can also use the “Photo Booth” option to have the app take four successive photos. The app then provides a number of layout choices, letting users decide which to use.
According to Instagram’s blog:
"…you have complete artistic control. Drag and drop photos to rearrange them, pinch to zoom or pull the sides of each photo to adjust its size and get your layout just right. Then flip and rotate your photos to create cool arrangements and mirror effects." The collages can be shared on various social media sites, including Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat.
Instagram created Layout to address the growing number of people using third-party apps to create collages to be posted in Instagram.
