Tutorial Recording Notes:

Disclaimer: these are the actual notes I used to record this video and are written in a language you may or may not understand. Hopefully, you find them useful or cool.

  1. Instagram images typically have either a 1:1 ratio or a 4:5 ratio.
  2. I like the 4:5 ratio because you get more of your image on any given screen as people scroll through their feed.
  3. We’ll create a perfect sliding panoramic instagram gallery effect at the 4:5 ratio, but this would work exactly the same at a 1:1 ratio, too.
  4. Create a new Photoshop document 1080×1350
  5. This is for one image.
  6. Now we decide how many images we want in our pano. 2,3,4,5, more?
  7. Open Image>Canvas Size and increase the width 400% for 4 images, etc…
  8. Use the Rectangle tool to draw 4x 1080×1350 rectangles and snap them all together
  9. Change fill colors to distinguish them
  10. Drag in the photo and transform it to place
  11. Ctrl + click the thumbnail from each rectangle and copy image to new layer to piece it up
  12. Select all the layers and Export As…
  13. These images will now perfectly align in Instagram when you create a gallery
