Instagram has launched a new app, called Layout, which lets you combine multiple photos into a single, square image.
That’s something we have all done since nearly the beginning of Instagram. However, we have done that without the help of Instagram and, instead, used apps like Diptic and other collage-making apps to export images to our phones’ camera rolls and then upload to Instagram.
While Layout is still a separate app that you must install, it does include a share to Instagram feature within to make it a quicker process.
Layout also has a facial recognition features that will allow you to choose photos with only faces of people from your camera roll. Additionally, a Photo Booth feature lets you capture photos that instantly fill your layout.
For now, Layout is only available for iOS devices with support for Android promised in the coming months. You can get Layout for free here on the iTunes App Store.
