Frame Up

Tip 1: Frame up your photo

When composing your shot, use the rule of thirds to attract the eye and move circularly throughout the action within that frame. Consider the use of negative space to emphasize certain areas of focus – it can really add to the visual impact of a scene!

Once you upload your pic into Instagram, test out the new in-app layout options. You have the power to decide which format best shows off your photo: portrait, landscape, or the classic square!

P.S. Now you can directly import photos from your Instagram feed to Snapfish! Try out our new Square Prints.
