I just heard that Instagram passed 100,000,000 users. It’s no surprise one of the questions I hear most often is how to print these pint-sized images. This video will show the method I use most frequently: to print two images on a 4×6 base with my Canon Selphy.


Other Methods for Printing Instagrams

A year ago I shared another method for printing Instagram photos using Photoshop Elements. This is a great approach if you have a lot of images to print and don’t have Lightroom.

I also will sometimes print directly from my phone using the Canon app, and use PicFrame if I want multiple images per print. Liz Kartchner created a cute video showcasing how to use the Selphy for printing Instagrams using these apps. I prefer to print photos in larger batches, but this approach is super easy.
