Avoid the Instagram Crop with #Square
Posted June 30, 2013 at 08:00 pm by Will Verduzco
How many times have you uploaded a picture on that overly filtered and hipster-friendly photo sharing service Instagram, only to be disappointed to discover that your image has been cropped to a square? While you may be accustomed to this by now, that doesn’t mean that you can’t do anything about it.
This is where XDA Forum Member sergeyotro‘s new app #Square comes in. Rather than allowing Instagram to crop your picture without your control, #Square lets you control how this is done so that you don’t lose any of your image if you don’t want to.
Essentially, #Square allows you to easily add a border to your pictures of any aspect ratio, allowing the final output image size to be a square, but without any of your image cropped off. In addition to simply padding your images, the app gives you quite a bit of control over the process by allowing you to select both the color of the border, as well as output quality and format.
