An experimental script that uses Python to enter and make every picture in a directory “Instagram Ready” by framing ‘em up into a no-crop square.
This script was inspired by how there are multiple free/paid apps to accomplish this on the mobile app store, but none for desktop. Hope this made your social media routine a little less annoying!
Tested On Windows 10 + Python 3.6 + PILLOW 6.0
