How to Print Instagram Photos (VIDEO)

by | Digital Photography Tips | 3 comments

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.

How to Get Instagrams Off the iPhone

After filming this tutorial, I realized that I have a really simple method to get my Instagram photos off of my phone (and into Lightroom). It’s one that is free for anyone with an Apple computer, but many don’t know about it: Image Capture.

Instagram photos are one of the most popular ways to share slices of your life. By printing these square pics, you can use them on layouts and in Project Life. What is your favorite way to print Instagram photos?

    Also how I print 2 x 2 photos to put them on a scrapbook layout ? Carmelle
    And how you print 2 X 2 photo, are you doing it with the printer
    Itself? I would like to have them ready before I print
    Or do you cut them?

      In this video I am using Lightroom’s Print module to create an image collage. I then cut the images apart.
