There's a brand-new problem that allowed individuals upload extra-long images onto their feeds. It's eye-catching for pretty obvious reasons: they take a while to scroll past. Instagram normally limits picture images to roughly the size of your screen.

The glitch appears to have actually only worked on iOS. To make it work, you generally just developed or conserved an extra-long photo, after that opened Instagram's image picker as well as chosen it. The app seems to have actually stopped working to effectively crop them.

People started to observe the glitch on Wednesday. Soon after publication of this tale, Instagram seems to have actually dealt with the concern. Many people now say they get a server error when they try to publish the long pictures, avoiding the pictures from releasing onto their feed.

"We're aware of an insect involving extra-large images on Instagram. We're functioning quickly to take care of the issue," a spokesperson for Facebook, which possesses Instagram, stated in an email to The Verge.

Even when it was working, the problem featured some restrictions. Pictures that were also long appeared to not work or to show up all black. Some photos were also cut off and showed up actually pixelated. This wasn't quite a chance to upload a full-res scan of a stunning banner you made.

On Android, Instagram proceeded cropping images effectively, so you weren't able to post them. The photos do still show up extra-long in your feed, however, so you can see what others are uploading.

This is almost certainly a problem and also not a brand-new function, so it was not likely to linger for long. In the meantime, it's rapidly being grabbed by influencers as well as meme accounts as a novel means to get people's interest on the app. We've connected to Instagram for comment.
