The first application for Instagram I want to talk to you about is called Layout. It is a complementary and official application of the photographic social network that you can use to give an extremely original touch to your published photos. The key feature of Layout is in fact given by the possibility of creating photo compositions, real collages that will make your photos unique.

To do this, open the Google Play Store or the iOS app Store and type Layout within the integrated search engine.
