Instagram is finally making albums less awkward
Instagram is finally fixing one of the most frustrating parts about posting multiple photos at once. The app now allows you to add both portrait and landscape photos to albums.
Previously, the app only allowed you to upload multiple photos as square images. This severely limited the usability of Instagram's albums feature, as it forced you to choose between awkwardly cropping photos into squares or posting your photos one-by-one.
Today's update doesn't address all of the awkwardness of Instagram's albums, tough. Frustratingly, Instagram still requires that all the photos in an album are cropped the same way. So you can't upload a portrait and landscape image to the same album.
The company says this limitation is "to keep the experience smooth and consistent" across the app.
Still, Instagram is slowly improving other aspects of its clunky albums. The app now lets you go back and edit tags within albums after the fact, which for some reason previously existed for normal posts but not for albums.
And the iOS version of Instagram lets users save albums as drafts, which will be coming "soon" to Android, according to Instagram.
