New Delhi. Instagram is focused on bringing full-screen content to its platform. Currently, the company is working on a new format for the photo. According to Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri, the photo-sharing platform will begin testing ultra-high footage at 9:16 a.m. in the coming weeks. Currently, Instagram offers a 4:5 aspect ratio when displaying vertical images.

Mosseri revealed that you can make long videos, but not long images. So we thought maybe we should make sure we treat both equally. He said that with the help of this format, these images would fill the entire screen like reels.

Photographers criticized
Previously, this 9:16 aspect ratio had been criticized by photographers for spoiling the image quality and making it look clunky. According to a report in The Verge, the app has also added overlay gradients to the bottom of stream posts to make the text easier to read.

Ideal not format
In the meantime, Mosseri admitted that the format isn’t ideal, but the company still wants to roll out the ultra-tall photo format. However, it will not be made mandatory for all photographs. Mosseri added that I think we need to take a big step back, regroup and figure out how we can move forward.

criticism of changes
Notably, Instagram recently rolled back its UI changes, which include full-screen video posts in feeds (somewhat similar to TikTok). The platform has also reduced recommended posts based on algorithms. The company took this step at a time when Instagram faced massive criticism for the changes. Big celebrities and users such as Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian have criticized the changes made by the social media photo-sharing platform.
