Last April Instagram iPhone is updated to include two new features. Now, a few months after it has received a new update to version 7.1.0 with many new features, including one that stands above the rest, and they have decided to increase the resolution of photos to a size of 1,080 x 1,080.
One of the main complaints of users of Instagram was so great compression that made the application when uploading photos, and that the resolution down to make them 640 x 640. Recently the company began preparing for a large change and began to increase the resolution of 1,080 x 1,080 images in the web version of Instagram.
This improvement also comes to the application for iOS and Android, so that Instagram users can now enjoy high-resolution images without losing quality. Of course, it seems that for now the change is not shown on Instagram, although the source code of the Web version now reveals that the photos are saved to that resolution FullHD 1080p.
Instagram can publish the change in the next few days
The fact that Instagram previously stores pictures in high resolution at 1,080 x 1,080 suggests that the application will probably be announced this change very soon. Of course, you do not even know if will be announced in the coming days or weeks.
As has been told, there will be images of 640 pixels stretched and expanded to fill the new larger size, but the actual resolution is 1,080 pixels and offer a quality that will approach rather than that of the original image. Admittedly, Instagram has been relatively slow upgrade to increase the resolution, and that the quality requirements of users is increasing, not to mention the cameras of mobile devices increasingly offer better results then saw depleted to upload them to this network.
The resolution of 640 x 640 has been used since the service was launched in 2010 and has not been until now that have decided to jump to 1,080 x 1,080. Finally, from CultofAndroid comment that the update is being deployed, so it is possible that your application still follow Instagram viewing images at 640 x 640, but did not take long to see the change.
