The year 2020 has finally come to an end but with that, most people’s Instagram must be flooded with top 9 snaps of the year. The Instagram Top 9 trend started a few years ago when celebrities like Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, and Selena Gomez posted their top photos of that year and shared them with their millions of followers.
Even though the trend is extremely popular, Instagram has not implemented a native way to create and share the top photos directly in the app. Instead, users have to use third-party apps to create their collages.
How to create your own Instagram Top 9 2020
The idea behind the Top 9 trend is that these recaps break down your top 9 Instagram posts in terms of likes for the year. There might be some of you here who have already seen their friends or relatives post their collages. One of the most popular ways to create and share your Instagram Top 9 is with the app Top Nine for Instagram.
Once you have downloaded the app on iOS or Android, it will ask you to enter your email address. Then the app will generate your Instagram Top 9 grid based on your most liked posts of the year. There will be a ‘Top Nine’ watermark over your grid, however, you can remove this with a $1.99 in-app purchase.
If someone is not up for the in-app purchase then they can move to the Best Nine app which is available for free on the App Store and Play Store. There is no watermark on the final image, the app does not ask for an email address, but the app is filled with ads.
If you go for any of the two apps mentioned above, you just need to tap Share and save the image to your Photos or share it directly on your Instagram feed. If someone chooses to save the image to their Photos, then they can upload it on Instagram just like any other ordinary image.
Also, beware of fake versions that claim to offer the top nine or best nine services, because these counterfeit apps and sites can bring harm to your device. These websites and apps were the reason that BetaLabs – creators of the Top 9 app – launched their CreatorKit service. The service can also create an Instagram Top 9 along with useful tools that are useful for creators.
