And that was not the only news announced by Instagram . According to the social network, soon it will be possible to post photos and videos of any size in the stories. The company must have heard the feedback of many users who are bothered to have to cut the photo because the image needs to adapt to the format of the stories. When the feature is available, simply select the share option with the original size and dimension.

Who could not wait to be able to post their images in landscape format, for example, can already celebrate. The part that "remains" of the image so that it can fit in the rectangular format of the screens will be filled with a gradient background or some custom color. This will depend on the file you share, according to Instagram itself.

GIFs stickers are already running on Android and iOS devices  and are part of Instagram version 29, so make sure you update the app on your device to get access to the new feature. There is no set release date yet for posting files with their original dimensions. Anyway, Instagram says that this feature will be available to users in the coming weeks.
