Before you start your Instagram digital photo frame creation experience using Slibstream we thought we’d answer some of our first time user questions that we sometimes get asked by Slibstream newbies…
Looking for the perfect IG frame prop? Well here it is, ladies and gentlemen we’d like to introduce you to: Slibstream – Never miss a perfect photo frame moment ever again. We’ve built a free Instagram digital photo frame especially for you! Here’s the low down:
If I want a square multi photo frame can I do this in Slibstream?
Yes. A multi square photo frame is available as 2×2 or 3×3.
Pictured: 2×2 multi photo frame pictured showing 4 Instagram photos.
Will my photos in Slibstream appear bigger than in Instagram (a life size photo)?
Yes. If your device screen is tablet sized + (1000px wide or larger). We recommend: setup a Slibstream to display 1 photo at 1 time with the smallest margin possible (ideally 0). If you do this, your Slibstream photo will probably be larger than real life size photo. It’s probably worthwhile either not displaying a text message on your frame or placing the text message on your frame itself. This way you have the full space of the frame to display giant photos.
Will Slibstream replicate a photo booth Instagram frame experience?
Yes. But the photos you take of yourself posing need to go onto Instagram for them to appear in your Slibstream.
Do I need any special photo booth Instagram software/app to do this?
Nope. Slibstream plays in a web browser! We’ve tested is successfully on the modern: Chrome, Safari, Opera, Firefox and Edge (Formerly Internet Explorer) web browsers.

No. Slibstream isn’t designed to be added on to (bolted on to) your existing Instagram app. Slibstream will work independently to your Instagram app in the background, but it will compliment your Instagram app usage. So, take more good photos, upload them to Instagram and play them in your Slibstream.
Will my photos all play as multiple photo frames with Instagram photos?
Yes. If you set your Slibstream to display more than one photo at a time. Photo grid layouts are available, our favourite is: 3 photos equally spaced on one row.

Large file sizes are supported for pixel clear quality.

Kind of. Simply open a Slibstream in your web browser and go into full screen mode when you are not using your desktop. This will play like an Instagram screensaver.

Yes, you can change the shape (square and polaroid) and colour of your Instagram photo borders per Slibstream. This will make your photos look differently to how they appear on Instagram.
Will Slibstream let me use it as a background frame app?
Yes of course. We want Slibstream to be the app you use when you’re not actively using your favourite app, listening to your favourite pod cast of watching a movie on Netflix. Slibstream will play in the background when you’re having some “internet away time” – just like a photo frame.
Are the photos I upload to Instagram, Instagram vector files/images?
No. The Instagram API delivers .jpg files from the API to third party apps such as Slibstream. These file types are not vectors.

No. Slibstream doesn’t allow you to follow, like or comment. Slibstream is your personal digital photo frame app. It’s been built to compliment your existing Instagram app usage.
Are all the photos that appear in Slibstream square shaped photos?
No during testing, some of our photos appeared rectangular like a real photo when we added them with Android and Apple apps to Instagram. If you choose a non square photo crop when you upload your photo to Instagram a non square (photo shaped) image will appear in Slibstream for a particular photo. Try it out if you don’t believe us!
