TRYPTpic, from independent developer Josh Granville, is offering a brand new way to share content on Instagram. TRYPTpic crops one photo into multiple related panels and uploads them sequentially to create a larger display area using the entire grid view of the profile. In the profile view, the panels combine to form one large, single image. Now photos can get the space they deserve, panoramas will not be shrunk too small to see, and your Instagram feed looks unique.
The triptych — three panels that combine to create a single art piece — is as old as the Renaissance. This art style still has the ability to create drama, action, and beauty through split picture framing. The TRYPTpic app has a simple interface that includes 6 different panel choices:
- 1x3, 2x3, 3x3, 3x4 - all crop choices that are 3 images horizontally can be uploaded through the Instagram interface in the app
- 1x2 and 2x2 panel choices can only be saved to camera roll to manually upload, as they require other photos to fill the blank spaces created
This style of "collaging" is referred to with hash tags as multiple of three frames, super panorama, mosaic feed or grid view, and was previously accomplished by using Photoshop. With TRYPTpic, it can simply and quickly be done using only one's iPhone, iPad, or iPod.
