Instagram Best Nine 2018 collages are now filling up feeds on the Facebook-owned social network.
It’s that time of the year again when you’ll see #BestNine pictures all over Instagram.
If you’re not familiar with what an Instagram Best Nine collage does, then it basically does what it says on the tin.
A Best Nine post shows an Instagram user’s top nine most liked posts in a single collage.
The Instagram Best Nine photos are arranged in a three-by-three grid to make it easy to view these images all at once.
As the year draws to a close you’ll be seeing plenty of your favourite profiles on Instagram posting #BestNine2018 photos in the coming days.
However, while Instagram Best Nine has become a tradition for the site it’s not a feature native to the Facebook-owned photo sharing network.
Instagram Best of Nine instead is something you’ll get from a third-party website.
If you’re looking to create your Instagram Best of Nine 2018 collage then you need to head to Topnine.co.
If you’ve created an Instagram Best Nine shot before then this year is slightly different.
To create an Instagram Best Nine 2018 picture you will have to give your e-mail address before getting your collage.
Kevin Natanzon is the founder of Beta Labs, the developer of Best Nine.
Speaking beforehand, Kevin explained that demand has been so high in the past few years that Best Nine isn’t always able to generate collages quickly.
So now Instagram users instead will be e-mailed their Instagram Best Nine 2018 collage once it’s ready.
Instagram users can then download the Best Nine collage or export it to an Instagram Story.
If you use the Instagram Best Nine app you’ll also be able to get this collage printed on items such as phone cases.
You can download the Best Nine app from the Google Play Store or from the App Store if you’re an Apple iOS user.
It’s important to note that if you have a private Instagram account you’ll have to use the app, not the website, to create your Best Nine.
Alternatively, you can create your own Best Nine image using Instagram’s own Layout app to place your photos into a grid.
If you’re creating your own Best of Nine you aren’t tied down to your most liked photos.
Instead, you can just pick slightly less popular Instagram pictures that you prefer.
