Preliminary information


Before explaining how to make separators on Instagram , I need 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 are nothing more than a sequence of three images that, published on your profile Instagram, allows you to graphically “separate” the images currently in the profile feed with those that will be posted later.

For creating these images you can give space to your creativity, creating customized graphics through the use of photo editing programs, such as Photoshop. Alternatively, more simply, you can use graphics apps for smartphones, such as Spark Post for Android (also available on alternative stores to the Play Store) and iOS / iPadOS.

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

Also, as I will explain later, you 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.

Instagram separator app

As anticipated, to make separators on Instagram it is possible to use special apps that provide a series of predefined templates from which to draw for 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 it is called Grid Post: this 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 Pro version 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 via alternative stores), by pressing the Install button, while on iOS / iPadOS take it from the App Store by pressing first on Get and then confirming the download and installation via Face ID, Touch ID or your iCloud account password.

In both cases, after starting the app (p using its icon located on the home screen and / or in the application menu), locate the template to use as a separator, among those that are proposed to you in the sections relating to the 3 × 3 , 3 × 2 or 3 × 1 .

After choosing the template, tap on it and press the picture-shaped icons , to add the photos to be published as separators. At this point, tap the Next button and choose whether to add other personalization elements, such as texts ( Add text ), stickers ( Sticker ) or filters ( Filter ) to the project. Once you’ve finished editing, press the icon (the Done button on iOS).

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

Once this is done, go back to 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 of your choice.

Grids (iOS)


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

Therefore, to start, download the app in question through the App Store, then start it and refer to the section Instagram Feed Layouts , to identify the separator template you want to use (in case you want to publish on Instagram some separators already made on the basis of specific graphic layouts).

Alternatively, click on the Grid item to set an empty layout to customize. In this specific case, you can customize the grid using the Width and Height items, in order to create, for example, a 3X1 grid.

Once this is done, press the Done button and then press the button (+), located at the bottom, to create a series of completely customized separators, by adding elements such as text ( Text ), stickers ( Stickers ) and shapes ( Shape ). Furthermore, by pressing the Tap to add background button, you 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 on arrow icon , then tap the Instagram button.

Once this is done, click on the first image , to automatically open the photo social network app and publish the image on your profile ( Feed ), using the Next , Next buttons and Share . Then repeat this operation for all three images to be published as separators and that’s it!
