Getting Started with Instagram Stories
Since the introduction of Instagram stories’ new vertical format in 2016, users have been getting increasingly creative with how content is presented on the platform. Unlike the traditional Instagram “square” post in the newsfeed, an Instagram Story offers users much more “online real estate” to portray themselves or convey a story.
Tutorial: How to Add Square or Landscape Photos on The Instagram App
Since many photos on our mobile apps come in square or landscape formats – and rarely portraits that are more suitable for the Insta story format, Instagram introduced an easy way to incorporate them into our stories. Open your Stories. Swipe up to open your camera roll and select any photo (square, landscape, etc.) of your choice. It will appear in the Stories, and you can pinch the image to resize it to fit the vertical format easily – however, any spare parts will be cropped out, and the background will be automatically updated to a similar color to the image. While that is very convenient indeed, it is not the most appealing for anyone looking to customize their stories' aesthetic look. That's where Instagram Editors like Mojo come into play!
