Why Does My Instagram Photo Look Blurry?

With new iPhones coming out seemingly on the daily and constant new updates to the Instagram app (not that we're complaining), it can be taxing to keep up with all the changes. When this happens, you may wonder: Why does my Instagram photo look blurry?

If your Instagram photo looks blurry it can be for a number of reasons. Maybe your iCloud is set to only save thumbnails (which means the pictures won't download into Instagram properly) or the quality of the picture is just generally low.

Instagram Photos Are Blurry Because of iCloud Settings

If you have your iCloud set to save photos on your phone as thumbnails, it might be making your Instagram photos appear blurry. To change this go to Settings > Apple ID > iCloud > Photos, and switch from "Optimize iPhone Storage" to "Download and Keep Originals." This does take up more storage on your phone, so if you need that phone storage, try posting your Instagram and then switching the setting back!
