Here's how to assemble a pixel billboard of your top posts. Yes, you can share it too

As the year comes to a close, we start to take stock of how the past 365 days has panned out: Literary magazines round up the top books they've read this year, beauty gurus raise the best beauty look of the year, and for the more reflective lot (ie our fashion team at Buro 24/7 Singapore) — the sartorial lessons we've picked up this year

For those in a sentimental mood, Instagrammer @_najlepiej has created a nifty software that helps you to showcase your top photos of the year in one neat, Instagram square. Dubbed the #16bestof16, the nifty programme trawls through all the photos you've uploaded on Instagram this year before picking out the top 16 photos which garnered the most 'likes' and comments. Like what you see? It goes without saying that you can share this collage on your Instagram. 

We tested the programme on our @buro247singapore Instagram account and here's what we found. The 1,581 photos we uploaded this year garnered 146,869 hearts and received 1,690 comments. Not surprisingly, swimming wunderkind Joseph Schooling featured not once but thrice in our hall of fame while photos of The Royals weighed in with equal heft. There was also a throwback to our first anniversary party and inaugural Buro 24/7 Singapore Digital Awards that made us smile.
