Here’s How To Create Your Best 9 Instagram Collage For 2017 (You’re Wecome)

It’s that time of year again … time to see … just how many likes you seriously got on the good old IG.

As 2017 wraps up, Instagram brought back their generator, which features the best nine photos of the year – word to the wise – if there are any exes in your past in a photo that got a hella lot of likes, stay as far away from this as possible.

But there are no directions on how to get this generator going – so we are saving you valuable happy hour time and giving you the straight up 4-1-1.

Follow these steps:

Set your IG to public if it is not already.
Head to
Type in your Instagram handle, and select “get.”
Next be patient AF because it can take up to 12 minutes to get your collage … but trust us, it’s totally worth it.
