Instagram Launches Layout Share This on LinkedIn   Share This on Google   Tweet This   Forward This

In a blog post today, Instagram introduced Layout, a free iOS app to "easily combine multiple photos into a single image."

Launching the app shows you previews of custom layouts you fill with images from your camera roll. You can drag and drop the images to rearrange them and adjust the size by pinching and zooming. You can also flip and rotate the images.

A Photo Booth function populates a layout with candids captured after a countdown, which reminds us a little of Momentsia.

The company said an Android version will be available "in the coming months."

Introducing Layout from Instagram

Today we're announcing Layout from Instagram, a new app that lets you easily combine multiple photos into a single image. It's fun, it's simple and it gives you a new way to flex your creativity.

When you open Layout, we automatically show you previews of custom layouts as you choose photos from your camera roll. To make it easier to find the photos you want, we've also added a Faces option that shows you all the photos in your camera roll that feature people.

From there, you have complete artistic control. Drag and drop photos to rearrange them, pinch to zoom or pull the sides of each photo to adjust its size and get your layout just right. Then flip and rotate your photos to create cool arrangements and mirror effects.

For spontaneous moments, we've also added Photo Booth. Tap it to start a countdown and capture photos that you'll instantly see in a layout.

From imagining mirrored landscapes to sharing multiple moments from an entire adventure, we've seen these kinds of visual storytelling happening on Instagram and we're inspired by it. With Layout, it's easier than ever to unlock your creativity -- and we can't wait to see what you'll make next.

Layout from Instagram is available today for iOS devices in Apple's App Store. It's currently only available for iOS. Layout from Instagram will be available for Android in the coming months.
