How to Add White Borders on Instagram
1) Log in to Plann
If the image you want to add a white border to is already added to your Plann dashboard, go ahead and tap on it.
If you haven’t added it yet, just tap the + in the upper right, and add any/all photos you want to tweak and schedule. Once the photos you want to adjust are added, tap on one.
You’ll arrive at this screen.
2) Crop and Edit Your Image
Tap the sliders icon in the bottom left under Edit image and set a reminder. You’ll be taken to this screen with a big set of tools.
The first edit to make is cropping. Tap Transform in the bottom left. At that point, you’ll be taken to this screen.
Here you can select a crop by aspect ratio. You can drag the image inside the preview screen, as well as pinch to zoom in and out and change which parts you are/aren’t cropping.
Once you’ve finished cropping, tap the check mark in the bottom right. You’ll be taken back to the Edit screen.
Take all the time you like to explore the other tools at the bottom, like filters, text overlays, etc. If you mess anything up, you can always tap the arrows to undo/redo, or tap the X instead of the check to cancel your edits.Managing white space is an essential component of visual layouts and shouldn’t be overlooked on your Instagram Click To Tweet
