Instagram's latest update gives you increased creative flexibility, still limits you

Instagram now lets you share landscape and portrait pics in galleries

Now the users are only able to post square format photos, but with the latest update this is going to change and users can post pictures in the format of their choice.

Instagram's album feature, which lets you share 10 or less photos and videos in a single post, is nifty but it also had one glaring weakness: users could only post photos as a square.

Back in August 2015, Instagram introduced support for landscape and portrait orientation images.

According to Techweez, the company says users can now upload photos and videos in albums in either landscape or portraits format. However, the only disadvantage was that the photos had to be cropped to the square format. But the photos and videos in a single album should be in the same format.

There are some other new updates as well that have remained a little more under the radar.

The update is now rolling out now for users on iOS and Android and should be made available for Windows 10 users in the coming weeks or days. This comes in handy for things like parties - maybe it is your child's first birthday and you want all the top photos posted together on your Instagram.
