Top Instagram Image Templates

To say that Instagram is just a photo sharing site is really just to scratch the surface of its full potential. Instagram has become such a big player in the image business, that it's changed the stock photography landscape. Using Instagram images effectively can help you connect with your audience, increase your visibility, and engage with people all over the world.

How to Use Instagram

Instagram is a great way to creatively connect with your audience, whether that’s to try and sell to them directly, or simply to build up your brand awareness and reputation. The key is to be creative and provocative with your posts. An attractive visual is great, but an image that makes someone pause and think as they scroll their timeline or via Instagram Stories will yield far better results.

The following tips will set you on track to make amazing Instagram posts:

  • Don’t overdo it. Instagram filters are great, but less is usually more!
  • Use targeted hashtags strategically, but don’t cram your post full of them.
  • Exercise control so that you’re posting frequently and consistently.
  • Interact! As with all social media, letting your personality come through will go a long way, so don’t be afraid to engage with your followers.
  • Keep an eye on trends or new formats so that your content stays relevant and share-worthy.

Instagram Image Sizes

Back when Instagram posts were limited to square photographs, your choice was a little easier. Now, it’s wise to put some thought into how your photograph will be seen and the best way to present it.

Here are the Instagram image templates that are generally considered to work best for your Instagram posts:

  • Landscape orientation: 1080 x 608 pixels
  • Square: 1080 x 1080px
  • Portrait: 1080 x 1350px

Remember, saving as a JPEG is usually best for photographs, and as a PNG for anything that includes text or fonts.

Like many other social media platforms, if you upload an image that’s bigger or smaller than this, the software will compensate and either enlarge or shrink your image, resulting in compression and a less than perfect image quality – it’s worth the extra work to get your image looking its best.
