Almost every smartphone Camera these days have Panorama mode to capture a wide view of nature or landscape. But what good is it if you can’t share the beautiful panoramic pictures on the most popular photo-sharing app – Instagram. Officially, Instagram still doesn’t support Panorama format on its platform. However, the good news for all the photographers out there is that there are ways with which you can achieve it. In this guide, we have shared how you can post Panorama on Instagram from Android and iPhone.
In 2017, Instagram launched the Gallery post feature that lets users upload multiple photos or videos in one post. We are going to leverage it and make use of a couple of free third-party apps to share panoramic or 360° photos on Instagram.
So, let’s get started.
Post Panorama On Instagram
Here’s the brief overview.
- The first step in this process is to split the Panorama into multiple photos of the size that is supported on Instagram.
- After you’ve multiple photos for Panorama you can simply go ahead and post them as a Gallery post on Instagram as usual.

You can easily remove the video as well as the app watermark.
