In today’s Photoshop video tutorial I’m going to share some useful tips for creating visually interesting panoramic posts on Instagram that seamlessly pan back and forth to show a larger image within the regular viewport area. These kinds of posts are perfect for wide images that you just can’t seem to crop into a square ratio, or to add a little creativity to your social media profile. There are all kinds of apps available that can achieve this kind of effect directly on your mobile device, but as professional designers and photographers it’s nice to create our images manually to have full control over the outcome. I’ll show you how to use Photoshop to crop your images into the correct ratio, showing 3 different size options so you can keep in mind for when you’re processing your own images.
► 2x Square Images – 2:1
► 2x Portrait Images – 8:5
► 3x Square Images – 3:1
► 3x Portrait Images – 12:5
