Introducing Spreads, a new photo layout app designed specifically for Instagram Threads users who want to share their full-screen panoramic photos. Developed by Ryan Carver, the creator of the popular Series app, Spreads is a simplified version that caters specifically to Threads users and their demand for photo tools.
Carver’s inspiration to create new features for the Series app came after witnessing the possibilities that Threads introduced for sharing full-screen panoramic photos on Instagram’s Twitter/X competitor. Photographers started experimenting with different aspect ratios and splitting up their photos on Threads, leading Carver to realize the need for a dedicated tool. Thus, he quickly added the TH+ feature to meet the demands of Threads users, which gained significant popularity and even caught the attention of Meta CTO Andrew Bosworth (@boztank).
Spreads is a new photo layout app developed by Ryan Carver specifically for Instagram Threads users who want to share full-screen panoramic photos.
However, TH+ was just a part of the Series app, which possesses a more extensive range of capabilities such as designing layouts for Instagram carousels and other social media platforms like TikTok. Series allows users to combine photos and videos, utilize margin and edge controls, create layered backgrounds, and tell stories using Diptychs and Triptychs. It also offers the option to post carousels, among many other features.
In contrast, Spreads focuses solely on the features desired by Threads users. Carver refers to it as a “mini app” that is “simpler than Series.” Its purpose is to provide a user-friendly way to create panoramic photos for Threads. Carver stated, “I created Spreads to be the easiest way to create panos for Threads. Series continues to be the best app for all kinds of layouts, but it’s overkill for many people. Instead of complicating Series with more options, I decided to create something that works for a lot more people in both features and price. If you’re already using Series, great! It’ll continue to evolve to do everything Spreads can do.”
With Spreads, users can effortlessly create seamless, full-screen panoramic photos consisting of two to ten panels with just a few taps. Unlike the subscription-based Series app, Spreads is available as a one-time purchase of $2.99 on the App Store.
