File sharing service Instagram, has long compressed images so they are easier to upload. Now reports The Verge that they will increase the image resolution and improve the quality of your photos.

When Instagram was launched in 2010 had to be small images so that they could be uploaded quickly, nor take up too much storage. This resulted in images with lower resolution and detail that did not materialize from the pictures users shared. Previously images on Insta had a pixel resolution of 640 x 640, now they want to increase the resolution to 1080 x 1080 for iOS and Android, which means that your images will be bigger and more beautiful than ever.

Today’s mobile phones have large screens and a resolution that exceeds certain television sets. The transition from a pixel resolution of 640 x 640 to 1080 x 1080 can be viewed as a big step in the right direction. With the new solution will use to view more detailed images – which probably will not result in slower upload. It will also be easier to trim images that already have a resolution of 1920 x 1080.

Web has pictures still the old format, but already today you will be able to see images with greater resolution of Instagram app.
