What type of Pictures get likes on Instagram

instagram text

It seems that essentially the answer is Blue ones!

American  research firm Curalate recently carried out a large research project on what image factors drive likes on photo sharing platform Instagram.   The study looked at 30 different parameters using the likes of  8 million pictures.  The result?  They found that blue tinted images received 24% more likes.

But thats not all, to create the ultimate like attracting picture you should also factor in:

  • Blue colour takes up 20% of the image.
  • Reds and Oranges are definitely out.
  • Leave a good amount of background with not to much close cropping.
  • Pictures are well lit
  • Use Walden or Rise filters
  • To share on Twitter upload directly via Twitter app not Instagram share option.
