Instagram’s new Layout app creates custom collages

24 Mar 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Instagram introduces ‘Layout,’ a photo collage app.

The app is currently only available on Apple’s iOS App Store, but Instagram confirmed it would also become available on Android’s Google Play store in the coming months. Scroll through “all” images, or try “faces” to look through selfies and photos of family and friends; no pets or otherwise non-human entities will appear in this section. In the blog post announcing the launch, Instagram said: “Today we’re announcing Layout from Instagram, a new app that lets you easily combine multiple photos into a single image.

It’s fun, it’s simple and it gives you a new way to flex your creativity. “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. Simplicity is the name of the game here — there are no borders or stickers available to add to your photos. (Though certainly, because we’re talking about Instagram users, there will be filters.) The app also has a “Faces” feature that scans your camera roll to pick out the pictures that feature people — useful if you’re trying to quickly compile a collage of a group trip or family reunion. There’s also a feature called “Photo Booth,” which seems to work just like, well, a photo booth — it shoots up to four pictures in rapid succession and lets you arrange them as you see fit.

Click a picture to edit the format—pinch to zoom, pull the sides to adjust its size, and play around with the “flip” and “mirror” features to see what your pictures look like from a different perspective. “For spontaneous moments, we’ve also added Photo Booth,” Instagram said. “Tap it to start a countdown and capture photos that you’ll instantly see in a layout.” Be prepared; the camera snaps four pictures quickly—just like in a standalone photo booth at the mall or cinema. There are plenty of photo-collage apps out on the market such as Diptic or PhotoFrame, which users of Instagram and other photo-sharing networks have relied on to let their pictures say more than just a thousand words.
