Planning out your Instagram feed has become a normal part of mindful posting. Not only does this allow you to create aesthetically pleasing grids for followers to know what to expect from your content, but planning also frees up your time so that you can continue to create more content that your followers' love. 

There are apps out there created for Instagram feed planning and post scheduling, but they come at a high cost to users. So if you are looking for a quick and easy alternative that allows you to see how your Instagram grid looks before posting, look no further than BeFunky’s Collage Maker.

Once you add all nine, you can easily rearrange them by selecting an image on the grid and dragging it to a different cell. You will see the images in the cells switch places. If you want to adjust the crop, simply click and drag on the image to adjust the composition in the cell.

If you need to make any edits to the images, click on the image and then select Edit Image in the menu that appears. In the Edit Image menu, you can adjust the image size, rotate, and flip the image in the orientation you like most.
