It's been a few years since you were able to post multiple photos in one message with Instagram. This small change made many creative options possible. One of my favorites is to create seamless panoramas by simply dividing your photo in two – like this one.
If you want to take advantage of this neat little hack, here's a quick, easy tutorial on how you can do it.
Before you begin, you need two things: Adobe Photoshop (or another pixel-based photo editor that lets you work with layers) and an elementary understanding of Instagram's requirements for photo format.
Create your panorama  Okay, let's start Photoshop and open two documents.
- The first must be 2160 x 1350; it's where you "cut" your photos into two parts. Let's take the first document & # 39; Full image & # 39; to mention.
- The second document must be 1080 x 1350; this is where you put some images and prepare for export. We can call these "Slices".
- Open or drag your image to the first document ("Full image").
- Go to "View" in your menu bar and select "New guide layout".
- Set two columns with width zero and cast zero. If rows are selected, cancel the selection because you do not have to cut horizontally, only vertically. This creates a turquoise line in the middle of your photo.
- Before we proceed to the next step, you must ensure that you & # 39; Snap to Guide & # 39; is enabled . It will make your life that much easier.
- Select the selection frame on your left (or press the shortcut "M") and drag your cursor over the first half of the photo. If Align to guide is enabled, your selection will automatically align to the turquoise vertical line that you have previously made.
- Now that you have your selection, you can easily copy it and place it in a new layer in the document & # 39; Segments & # 39; to stick.
- Return to the "Full Image" document and repeat for the other half of the image.
Now you are ready to export. You can export each layer at once with Photoshop's "Layers to Files" option (under "File"> "Export") or you can export each layer individually. I usually add a few more layers to the same document, so I export it in batch. If you want to check your final export settings, you can use "Save for web ".
