InstaWP is a new free service that lets you create high resolution wallpaper collages compiled from Instagram photos. You don’t even need to have an Instagram account to use the service, just feed the InstaWP panel a username, category, or tag, set a few parameters, and it will automatically generate a wallpaper consisting of the Instagram feed you gave it.

Available resolutions support most common desktop sizes and smartphone screens, including iPhone 4 and even the retina iPad 3 display.

A particularly neat effect can be had by creating a handful of different wallpapers and throwing them into a single folder, then use the automatic wallpaper changing feature in Mac OS X to rotate between the collections.

For the artsy, you could just download all your Instagram pictures and make one yourself with Photoshop or Pixelmator, but that’s a whole lot more work.

If you like this you’d probably like the Instagram screensaver Screenstagram too.
