Make Your Instagrid Amazing with These 9 Layouts and 3 Tools

A trend that has been slowly creeping into the Instagram mainstream over the past couple years is the customized Instagrid. You may have seen it already – your favorite musician customized the first 9 tiles of his profile to create the cover of his album, or your favorite photographer used the first 12 tiles to create a massive panoramic of the New York skyline.

The ways in which Instagram users continue to improve the organization and appearance of their profile grid is truly amazing. Instagrids also don’t seem to be dying out, so to keep you in the loop, we put together a list of 9 grid layouts you can create yourself, as well as 3 tools you can use to customize your Instagrids for you.

Pretty cool, huh?

As you might imagine, some of these grids will take time to plan and implement.

3 Tools to Create Instagrids

With the exception of Planoly, which you can also use to schedule and analyze your Instagram posts, the following tools are essentially only differentiated by UI (which isn’t to say that UI isn’t important!). Accordingly, each tool is simply accompanied by its customer review rating.
