Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri confirmed that Instagram will start testing ultra-tall 9:16 photos. Instagram currently maxes out at 4:5 when displaying vertical images that have been cropped accordingly. But the introduction of support for slimmer and taller 9:16 photos will help them fill the complete screen as you scroll through the app feed:
Instagram New Ratio:
Instagram is a photo and video sharing social networking service founded by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger in 2010, and On April 9, 2012, Facebook, Inc., now known as Meta Platforms bought Instagram as it was a threat for Facebook. Instagram allows users to upload media that can be edited with filters and organized by hashtags and geographical tagging. Posts can be shared publicly or with pre-approved followers. Users can browse other users’ content by tag and location, view trending content, like photos, and follow other users to add their content to a personal feed.
Earlier Instagram only allowed content to be framed only in a square (1:1) aspect ratio of 640 pixels to match the display width of the iPhone at the time. In 2015, this restriction was eased with an increase to 1080 pixels. It also added messaging features, the ability to include multiple images or videos in a single post, and a Stories feature—similar to its main competitor Snapchat—which allowed users to post their content to a sequential feed, with each post accessible to others for 24 hours. As of January 2019, Stories are used by 500 million people daily. Recently Instagram modified its design in a very similar way to TikTok. This design was disliked by many of their users worldwide.
Instagram may have stopped its controversial redesign, but according to Instagram news, the company plans to stop focusing on full-screen content. During his weekly ask me Anything today, CEO Adam Mosseri confirmed that Instagram will start testing ultra-high 9:16 photos “in a week or two.” “You can have tall videos, but you cannot have tall photos on Instagram,” Mosseri said. “So, we thought maybe we should make sure that we treat both equally.” Instagram currently maxes out at 4:5 when displaying vertical images that have been cropped accordingly. But the introduction of support for slimmer and taller 9:16 photos will help them fill the complete screen as you scroll through the app feed. That’s all for Instagram ultra-high photos in 9:16 test 2022 news.
