For those of you that utilize your Instagram Stories, it just got a little easier with sharing your photos on the platform. 

Until recently, you were only able to share photos that were created in the last 24 hours. A lot of the time, if you’re desperate to share whatever photo, you end up screenshotting it in your camera roll.

Well, no more! You will now be able to choose anything in your camera roll, according to Instagram’s Press Blog!

These updates make life a little easier, but if there was one more tweak we need when it comes to stories, it’s being able to center, zoom in, or zoom out on the photo. Much like when the Instagram platform first started, you were only able to create a post in a square form. Now you can expand it to rectangular sizes.

When it comes to stories, it takes up the entire screen so we’re hoping that eventually Instagram will help us out without automatically cropping our choice of photo.
