So you’re walking around and you see this great scene and decide to take a photo. On Portrait mode. And upload it to Instagram. What happens is you have to do one of two things: use a third party app to add borders to the photo so you can upload it without cropping it, or crop it to make it square. The problem is most times you don’t want to do that. Now, you won’t have to as Instagram updated the app to add support for landscape and portrait photo. Let’s take a moment and celebrate.

A new format button has been added that lets you switch between squared and full-size photos. You’ll have all your other features as well, so you can zoom and crop, add filters and more.


The update should be arriving today to iOS and Android.
