I absolutely love Instagram’s new Gallery feature.  For those of you unaware, Fstoppers sums it up nicely: you can now add galleries of up to 10 images to Instagram posts.  Here’s an example (from my Instagram page, which you should follow!):

Loving the new gallery option! Here are ten favorites from around the world over the past few years!

Many of you (including myself) love panoramic photography but Instagram limits your ability to display them in their full glory, but the gallery feature has come to the rescue!

Here’s how to use Galleries to post panoramas to Instagram:

  1. Process your panorama
  2. Using Lightroom/Photoshop/Whatever, crop your panorama into one of the following aspect ratios: 2:1, 3:1, 4:1, etc.
  3. Once you’ve cropped the image, split the image into 1:1 blocks and save those as your images
  4. Once those images are on your device, simply use the Select Multiple option to select the panorama in display order
  5. You’re done!  Now your followers will be able to see your beautiful panoramas in all of their beauty!

Here’s an example of how it will look:

Cool use of the new gallery feature, swipe right to see the rest of the pano!
