Preliminary information

Before explaining to you how to make separators on instagramI have to give you some preliminary information about what they are, what they are for and how this content is created.

Well, you must know that the separators they are nothing more than a sequence of three images that, published on your profile Instagramallows you to graphically “separate” the images currently in the profile feed with those that will be posted later.

To create these images it is possible to give space to one’s creativity, creating customized graphics through the use of photo editing programs, such as Photoshop. Alternatively, more simply, it is possible to use graphics apps for smartphones, such as Spark Post for Android (also available on alternative stores to the Play Store) e iOS / iPadOS.

Alternatively, if inventiveness and / or time to create original content is scarce, it is possible to use applications that include predefined separator templates, as I will explain in detail in next chapter of this guide.

Also, how I will explain to you even further onyou can use separators created by other users by searching and downloading these images directly on Instagram or from other apps, such as Pinterest. For more information on this, read on.

App to make Instagram separators

As anticipated, to do the separators on Instagram it is possible to make use of special apps that provide a series of predefined templates from which to draw for the publication, on your Instagram profile, of a sequence of three separation images. Here are some of the most interesting.

Grid Post (Android / iOS)

Grid Post

One of the first apps that I recommend you use to make separators on Instagram is called Grid Post: it is an app that allows you to easily customize your Instagram profile through the use of separators already made on the basis of predefined graphic styles, which can however be customized.

The app in question can be used for free, but by purchasing the version Pro at a cost of € 7.49 on Android and € 7.99 on iOS, you can remove advertising and unlock all other additional templates.

To use it, download the app on Android from the Play Store (or through alternative stores), by pressing the button Installwhile on iOS / iPadOS take it fromApp Store pressing on first Get and then confirming the download and installation via Face ID, Touch ID or via the password of your iCloud account.

In both cases, after starting the app (by pressing its icon located on the home screen and / or in the applications menu), locate the template to be used as a separator, among those proposed to you in the sections relating to grids 3 × 3, 3 × 2 or 3 × 1.

After choosing the template, tap on it and press on picture icons, to add photos to post as separators. At this point, tap the button Following and choose whether to add other personalization elements, such as texts (Add text), stickers (Adhesive) or filters (Filter) to the project. When you have finished making changes, click on the icon (the button end on iOS).

Now you can post the three images on Instagram acting directly through the app Grid Post: presses, therefore, on photo number 1in order to start the app of the photographic social network and publish it in the feed (by pressing the buttons Forward, Forward And Share).

After that, go back to the app Grid Post and repeat the same operation also for the second and third image, in order to create the separation of the images published on Instagram through the template you have chosen.

Grids (iOS)


If you own a iPhoneyou can use the app Grids to create separators for Instagram using various predefined templates, or you can create them independently in a completely customized way. This app is free, but in order to have access to some additional features you need to purchase the version Pro at a cost of € 5.99 / week or € 45.99 / year.

Therefore, to get started, download the app in question via theApp Storethen start it and refer to the section Instagram Feed Layoutsto locate the template of separator you want to use (in case you want to publish on Instagram some separators already made on the basis of specific graphic layouts).

Alternatively, tap on the item Grid to set a blank layout to customize. In this specific case, you can customize the grid through the items Width And Heightin order to create, for example, a grid 3X1.

Once this is done, click on the button Done and then presses on button (+)located at the bottom, to create a series of completely customized separators, by adding elements such as texts (Text), stickers (Stickers) and forms (Shape). Also, by pressing the button Tap to add backgroundyou can add an image from the Gallery (Image from Gallery) or color the background of the separators (Color fill).

At the end of the customization, but also if you have chosen to use a predefined template, click onarrow iconthen tap the button Instagram.
