Pictures of your food on Instagram are about to get… sharper

July 7, 2015

Company is now adding support for high-res images.

Instagram went to become one of the most popular social media tools. The prospect of sharing images and video was proof that millions of users prefer the platform compared to Facebook or Twitter.

The only problem is that up until the past days, Instagram only supported resolutions of 640 x 640 pixels. Even if you upload a large image, it will still be compressed down to that size. You won’t really notice the drop in quality when viewing it from a smartphone, but on a desktop the pixels simply hurt your eyes.

Good thing is that Instagram is rolling out support for high-res images, which means that any image that you upload is now stored at 1080 x 1080 pixels. Instagram hasn’t officially addressed the change, but the support for high-res images will apply on their iOS and Android apps.

All the more reason to shoot more selfies right?
