Instagram Introduces a Standalone Photo-Collage App ‘Layout’
Instagram said in the blog post:
“When you open Layout, we automatically show you previews of custom layouts as you choose photos from your camera roll. To make it easier to find the photos you want, we’ve also added a Faces option that shows you all the photos in your camera roll that feature people.
From there, 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.
For spontaneous moments, we’ve also added Photo Booth. Tap it to start a countdown and capture photos that you’ll instantly see in a layout.
From imagining mirrored landscapes to sharing multiple moments from an entire adventure, we’ve seen these kinds of visual storytelling happening on Instagram and we’re inspired by it. With Layout, it’s easier than ever to unlock your creativity — and we can’t wait to see what you’ll make next.”
According to a report by TechCrunch, one in every five Instagram users has used a photo collage app at least once. This app will certainly prove to be useful for brand owners who want to showcase their products, their work place, their colleagues and whatever else they want.
Currently the app is available for iOS only but it is reported that an Android version is in the works too and will be out soon.
