How to Share Panoramic Pictures on Instagram on iPhone or iPad
Step #1. First off, download the app Panols on your iOS device. The app requires iOS 9.2 or later and is priced at $1.99.
After you have successfully downloaded the app, launch it. You need to allow the app to access your Photos app.
Step #2. Now, you should see the thumbnails of all the panoramic images available in your Photos library. Then, select the panoramic photo you want to use.
Note: All the panoramic images you have captured on your device are saved in an album called “Panoramas.” Hence, you can directly head over to this special album and pick the photo you wan wish to use.
Step #3. It will divide your panoramic image into three squares. You can pinch to zoom in and out or swipe around to align the panorama to the grid perfectly.
Once you are done, tap on Export Panol at the bottom. You should see a confirmation message that your panoramic shot has been processed and exported to the album “Panols” in your photo library. Next, tap on Done and then leave the app.
Step #4. Next up, open Instagram on your iOS device and select Plus button at the bottom.
Now, tap on Multiple icon and choose the three square images you just made with Panols from the original panoramic photo, then tap Next to continue.
Make sure the leftmost side of the photo is selected first. Also, ensure that the middle and rightmost side of the image is also selected.
You can select the filter for all of your squares at one go. To do so, tap on one of the filter thumbnails located alongside the bottom of the screen.
There is also an option to apply a different filter to each square image. Just tap on the icon in the lower-left corner. Then, tap on Next to continue.
Step #5. Don’t forget to type in your caption or enter other metadata as desired. In the end, tap on Share to upload your photo.
Once the image has been uploaded, your friends and followers will be able to see the first image in their feed. They need to swipe to access other pano shots in the series.
