How to Upload Full Photo on Instagram

Instagram has become one of the most popular social media platforms in the world, with millions of users sharing their photos and experiences online. However, it can be frustrating when you want to post a full-size image on your Instagram account, only to have it cropped or cut off. In this article, we’ll show you how to upload full photos on Instagram without losing any part of your image.

The first thing to try is to press the arrows on the side of your photo. This will center your photo as much as possible, leaving borders on the sides that won’t be posted. However, if your photo is longer than the square layout, you can pre-crop it to fit the right dimensions for an Instagram post.

Instagram only allows photos to be posted at a 4:5 ratio or an 8:10 for iOS devices. To crop your photo, press edit and then crop. The squares inside each other at the top will give you the exact dimensions. If you want to go for something a little bit longer, remember that 8:10 is the same as 4:5, which is the maximum amount Instagram will allow without borders.

However, if your image is even taller than that, you can use a third-party app like Square Fit. This app allows you to resize your photo to fit Instagram’s requirements without losing any part of your photo. You can choose whether you want your photo to be square, have borders around the outside fully, or only on the left and right. You can also choose the color of the border to blend back into your photos.

By following these steps, you can post full photos on Instagram without losing any part of your image. Whether you’re sharing your travel photos or showcasing your artwork, you can now post them in their full glory on Instagram.


Why can't I fit the whole picture on Instagram?
Why do my pictures not fit on Instagram? Instagram imposes a maximum 4:5 aspect ratio limit on all image posts. That means if your image is between 1:1 (a square) or 4:5 (a vertical rectangle that is four pixels wide for every five pixels tall), you can post it.
How do you make a long picture fit on Instagram?
When adding a new post, you'll see a light gray icon with a white box at the bottom left of the post screen. Click it and it will automatically resize your image to fit the frame. You can also pinch your fingers together to shrink your image so that it fits the post.
