How to create flowing Photographs with Instagram Multiple Image Posts

Dear Friends and Photography Enthusiasts,

This tutorial is on how to create photographs that flow through a series of images with the help of Instagram Multiple Image Posts. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here is an example;

NOTE : You please view the following link via the Instagram Mobile App. Flowing through images does not work on Instagram web.

Step 01 : Go take a photograph!!

Step 02 : Do your usual post processing and export the photograph in High Quality. I use Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for my post processing.


Step 03 : For this step I’m using Adobe Illustrator. Yes, I know that it’s a Vector Graphics tool, but it serves my purpose. What you have to do, is create a new document with an artboard that has the dimensions 1080px by 1080px.

Step 04 : Click on the artboard tool and add another artboard with the same dimensions to you project. Remember to place the artboards close to each other, as shown below.


Step 05 : Import your Photograph into Illustrator, and place it on top of the artboards. You will have to transform your photograph to fit into the two artboards. Then move the photograph around so that it captures what you want to show in your final output.


Step 06 : Next, export your final output. When doing this, export your image as either jpeg or png. What you have to remember here is to click on the checkbox that says “Use Artboards”. This will automatically split your photograph into multiple images.


Step 07 : When you complete the export, your output will look like this;


Step 08 : Now all that is left for you to do, is upload your images using the Instagram Multiple Image Posts! Remember to select the images in the correct order to make sure that the individual images flow across the photograph.


Step 09 : Now add a nice caption, appropriate hashtags, location information, and upload!!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!!
