A trend that has been slowly creeping into the Instagram mainstream over the past couple of 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.
One way to have a perfect Instagram profile is to add a specific theme to it. How 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, and 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.
9 Instagrid Layouts:
Trailing Rainbow Grid
Single Focus Grid
Consistent Filter Grid
Vertical Line Grid
Custom Border Grid
Horizontal Line Grid
Pretty cool, huh?
As you might imagine, some of these grids will take time to plan and implement. At least if you want to put them together yourself… Fortunately, for those too busy to put in the time and effort, the following four tools will help you create equally, if not more, beautiful grids in a fraction of the time.
3 Tools to Create Instagrids
Except for Planoly, which you can 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 accompanied by its customer review rating.
There are undoubtedly more layouts and tools than those listed here. If you’ve used a layout or tool to make your Instagram grid stand out from the pack, please share in the comments below!
