Instagram is a collection of countless photographs. Germany alone counts over 15 million active users per month. Around the world, there are over 700 million. Users show off their most inspiring, emotional, and beautiful pictures. What’s the point of all that careful selection and filtering, if they’re just going to gather dust in the backwaters of cyberspace? Why not use them to spruce up your desk or living room wall instead? Below are some inspiring ideas for how to use and display your favorite Insta memories!
Choosing the Right Pictures: From Your Instagram to Stunning Prints
Choose Instagram pictures that maintain a high level of definition even when you zoom in. As long as your picture is between 320 and 1080 pixels, Instagram won’t go out of its way to compromise the picture quality. Watch out for pictures that are too grainy, and remember, some filters often have a negative impact on the picture quality.
Upload Instagram Prints Straight from Your Smartphone
This part is easy! Upload the selected photo directly on the WhiteWall website. You can find your pictures on you phone in the “Instagram” photo album – photos saved to your Insta profile are automatically saved here. Warning: this only applies if you have not deactivated the “Save original photos” in your Instagram settings. Otherwise, you can find the picture in your photo gallery, or in the “recently deleted” album.
Idea 1: Your Instagram Photo Printed on a Miniature Acrylic Print
With a WhiteWall Acrylic Mini, you can transform your best Instagram pictures into high-definition prints under glass! Order a real photo print under acrylic glass in the perfect Instagram size - 5.1 x 7.1! Upload your picture, select your size, and you’re ready to go! Send Instagram pictures out of your social media account and into the real world, packed in an elegant silver envelope. The acrylic photo print can hang on the fridge with its built-in magnet, or be placed upright on a desk with the included stand. All our prints also arrive ready to be hung on the wall.
Idea 2: Culinary Masterpieces for Your Kitchen
Is your Instagram a gallery of food photographs from the flyest new eateries? Why not inspire yourself to a little culinary experimentation of you own? Show off these culinary masterpieces in your own kitchen!
The water resistant HD Metal Print can take the heat, and is also resistant to dust, steam, and humidity. Choose a shimmery metallic or glossy surface depending on which one makes your Instagram pictures look the most appetizing. The HD Metal Print is also perfect for other rooms with lots of humidity, like bathrooms or outdoor areas, or outdoors, if you live in a humid climate.
Idea 3: Printing Instagram Photos With a Sculptural Feel – The Acrylic Block
Present your Instagram photos with an engrossing depth. Our glossy Acrylic Block has nearly an inch of acrylic glass. It stands alone – literally! You can set it right on a shelf, without a second thought about hanging and mounting. An Instagram print in an acrylic block is luminous, and its colors take on a vivid quality when printed on our top-flight Kodak Pro Endura photo paper.
There are four sizes to choose from, including two square Instagram formats: 4x4 and 8x8. It only takes a few clicks to transform your Instagram pictures into glossy acrylic blocks.
Idea 4: Instagram Stories on Photo Canvas
Instagram Stories is one of the app’s most beloved features. It allows users to share short videos of moments from their everyday lives, something like a shareable digital diary. Normally, the uploaded pictures and videos disappear after 24 hours – but you can preserve your Stories for all eternity. Pick your best shots (pro tip: try using the hashtag search) and create your own artistic arrangement on Canvas Prints. These give an immediate warmth and familiarity to your living room walls!
