Let’s get started.
There are a lot of different types of layouts and styles you can use on Instagram, so it’s important not to get stuck in a rut with your feed. Experimenting with different photo layouts will help bring new life into your feed and capture the eye of more followers!
Before you try any layout, make sure you have a social media calendar. The top five layouts you should be considering are:
Line in the middle layout
This layout is made up of plain background and picture images. The plain background may contain text – quotes, customer feedback, information, icons, brand logo, number, or brand name. This layout is mostly used by entrepreneurs or motivational speakers.
The row layout allows you to make the three cells in a row similar – either by color or design. You can choose to make the first row on your Instagram page – a picture, the second row – text, the third row – picture, and so on. You can also make the rows like your brand color. In the second image, we used our brand color (@UBS_digital) to create a beautiful row layout.
The trick for this layout is that you must post three images at once or you will end up creating another layout. You can even break an image into three parts and place them on a row as shown below.
This is one of the popular layouts on Instagram. This layout involves alternating between two posts i.e. a photo and a text or a photo and a video. This layout is also called the tile layout.
Border layout is one of the easiest layouts to create and follow. This layout allows you to add posts with your preferred border type. As shown below, the border type might be of the same color – white, black, blue, red, etc., or the same shape – circle, rectangle, oval, etc., as shown below. Note that this layout looks nice with minimal photos and photos with a strong pop of color.
This layout arranges your post in a diagonal order. If you are a chess lover, you can easily relate to the movement of the bishop piece. Using this layout, you can decide to make your post one diagonal or even two diagonals.
