Photo Resizer for Instagram (update)

I have actually been getting emails and messages from a number of individuals recently asking how I resize my photos for Instagram, maintaining the make-up, and also positioning my logo design on them. I figured that it would be much easier to just create right here the procedure that I experience to do it, rather than maintain repeating the exact same details numerous times - Photo Resizer for Instagram.

The first thing that you have to understand is that Instagram forces you to publish your photos in a square format, sized at 650px by 650px. The second thing that you must comprehend is that you have to export the pictures at the right dimension and resolution if you desire to maintain the pictures festinating and also of premium quality. That suggests that they should be exported at 650px on the long side.

For my operations, I make use of Lightroom, Photoshop, DropBox, and Instagram to handle all of the prep work and also publishing. I have actually attempted a few various other methods to post my pictures on Instagram, yet the following process has offered me the most effective as well as most consistent results.

If you don't wish to undergo the process that I follow below, and also simply intend to publish photos without IG cropping your photos, there are applications that you could mount on your smart device like Squaready and also InstaSize. I don't utilize either of those applications myself.

Photo Resizer for Instagram

Tip One - Lightroom

The first thing that I do is process my pictures generally, as well as prepare them for just how I print them, or publish them to my website. You can examine that process in previous messages in this same post-processing area. I won't repeat every one of that here.

As soon as you have actually finished with all of your post-processing of the photos, after that you can begin selecting the images that you wish to plan for uploading to Instagram.

In the Collection component, choose all of the pictures that you want to post to Instagram, and develop a brand-new collection of them. You can call it anything that you like, yet I suggest that you make use of "IG" in the name, either at the beginning or the end, to ensure that you remember what it is for.

As soon as you have chosen them, and also have actually produced a new collection, you need to go through and see if you can chop any of them to a 1-to-1 ratio. You can utilize the crop tool for that, and also pick 1 × 1 as the proportion.

The ones that can be exported as 1 × 1 in proportion, can be refined entirely in Lightroom, and could utilize your normal watermark (I utilized mine on the instance below). These will be exported at 650px x 650px.

The ones that have the ability to be resized as squares are simple, and that is all you need to provide for them in resizing. For every one of these, you could leap down to Tip Three-- DropBox, and also miss Step Two-- PhotoShop.

For the pictures that do not look great in a 1-to-1 ratio, you will wind up exporting these at 650px on the lengthy edge, but with no watermark on them. See the settings listed below. I recommend that you export these into a committed folder. Once they are exported, you will certainly continue to Step Two-- PhotoShop.

Tip Two-- Photoshop

The whole factor of this action is to put your image on a 650px by 650px history, and also to include your watermark to the bottom of the square. Doing it by hand is a tedious process if you attempt to do it manually, so I suggest that you carry out a set procedure and utilize an action to automate the procedure, which will make it straightforward to repeat over and over.

If you don't know how you can develop Activities in PhotoShop, you will have to examine that initially. Once you comprehend the procedure then the complying with instructions will make sense to you.

Your action will should do the adhering to points in this order:

- Open your image from your import folder and also lots it to a layer. By default, it is filled as a background. I replicate the history to a new layer, as well as call it "vehicle", leaving the opacity at 100%.
- After that it has to open up Image > Canvas Size as well as set the height to 650px.
- Develop a new layer, as well as label it "black".
- Load the "black" layer with the black color utilizing the paint container device.
- Use File > Open to open your watermark logo that you intend to place below the photo. Place it on a brand-new layer as well as name it "logo".
- Move the "logo" layer listed below the cars and truck layer.
- Relocate the "black" layer below the "logo" layer.
- Close the watermark that you previously opened up.
- Save the completed 650px by 650px picture to a brand-new folder someplace on your disk drive (you will certainly have to have actually currently produced this folder before creating the action).
- Close the file in Photoshop.

As soon as you have the action, you could open up PhotoShop at anytime, and run the Data > Automate > Set Process command, as well as choose the folder where you have stored the images that were not already at a 1-to-1 proportion.

Tip Three-- DropBox

Once you have exported all your photos, you have to get them up to Instagram There are programs that allow you to upload from your COMPUTER to Instagram, but I located that I had problems getting the hashtags to work effectively when I used them, and I had to start a new account to repair the hashtag problem. The fix was to merely continue to use my smart device as well as utilize the Instagram application to submit the pictures, yet to do that I had to have the pictures where my phone can access them. The easiest method was to use DropBox to obtain the images where my Instagram app might access them.

Most likely to as well as register for it. Download and install the application to your phone as well as login to it. Use the internet site to submit your pictures to your online storage space. I recommend that you make use of folders to arrange your images. In my case, I have a "Photos" folder, and also inside it, I have an "Instagram Photos" folder. Inside that folder, I develop folders as I need them, in order to divide the images right into smaller sized, less complicated to view, sections.

Once you have actually uploaded a collection of images right into DropBox, you are ready for the next step, and that is to grab your smartphone as well as open up the Instagram application.

Step Four-- Instagram

At this point, you must already have the Instagram and DropBox apps on your mobile phone, and you are ready to post among your images on Instagram.

Open the app, as well as click heaven switch in the middle of the icons at the end of the display. The take picture display will certainly fill, and also in the lower left-hand edge, you will certainly see a symbol that appears like a "landscape/mountain" icon (simply to the left of the "take a photo" switch). Click on it, and it should motivate you to "Select a Source" for your photo, and also the DropBox symbol must be presented as one of the selectable resources. Click it and you will see your DropBox folders and documents listed in a file browser. Navigate to the image that you submitted that you intend to publish to Instagram and choose it.

From there, you publish it to Instagram similar to you would certainly other image that you just took.

Tip Five-- DropBox

This last action is not needed, however highly recommended. In order not to lose track of exactly what you have uploaded already, you should go back into DropBox and delete the photo( s) that you have already posted. This will make it simpler over time to not post the very same pictures numerous times.


That's it, my whole process to preparing my images for Instagram. It's not complicated, yet adhering to these directions will certainly make certain that you are posting pictures in the best quality that Instagram could sustain.
