"... There is no doubt that sooner or later I shall set sail from that dock, but I shall not come back to tell you about it. The city exists and it has a simple secret: it knows only departures, not returns." — Italo Calvino Taken in Boracay, Philippines Travelgram Makeportraits Postthepeople

Rose to good news!!! So incredibly excited right now. Everyone's probably heard, but I'll just spread the word anyway — Instagram's done away with the square format for pictures, so you can post any aspect ratio you like WITHOUT the ugly white border to make up a square (no need for Squaready anymore, folks). And it auto-crops to a square when it appears on your grid so your grid still looks neat. I'm going to be experimenting with various aspect ratios from now on 😌😌 Problem though: the square crop is automatically centralized, so if you're particular about how the photo appears on your grid (who isn't?) your original photo has to have a more or less central object of interest, or it will be cropped out. P.S. this one's still a square cuz, well, some things do look better in squares. Minimal_people Cafehoppingsg
