Over the course of nearly 8 years and 800 million subscribers, Instagram's become the go-to social network for sharing photos and videos of whatever's going on in your life. Later this year, the app will finally allow users to download offline copies of their data.
Similar to the "Download Your Information" feature that Facebook introduced in 2010, this would enable Instagram users to save offline copies of their photos, videos, and direct messages. Along with ensuring you've got access to your content even if something should ever happen to Instagram, this would also make it easier for folks to grab their virtual belongings and easily take them over to another competing platform.
As great as this news is, exact details are still a bit murky. It's unclear if Instagram will also allow people to download things such as comments, likes, and stories, and there's no word as to whether or not downloads of pictures and videos will be further compressed than they already are.
Speaking to TechCrunch, a representative from Instagram said –
We'll share more details very soon when we actually launch the tool. But at a high level, it allows you to download and export what you have shared on Instagram.
This will mark the first time Instagram offers a first-party solution for easily saving offline copies of the content you share on the service, so it'll be interesting to learn more about the approach it's taking once further details emerge.
April 2, 2018 - Instagram ends support for Apple Watch
Instagram has reportedly called it quits on the company's Apple Watch app. MacRumors says the app was built using the watchOS 1 SDK, so it's been out of date for quite some time.
As of an April 2 app update, the Instagram app for iOS will no longer include a stand-alone app for watchOS.
The Instagram app for Apple Watch will no longer be available as a stand-alone experience once users upgrade to Instagram version 39 on iOS, released April 2, 2018. We are committed to providing users with the best experience with their Apple products and we will continue to explore ways to achieve this on all platforms. Users with an Apple Watch will continue to enjoy a great Instagram experience through various rich and varied notifications.
March 22, 2018 - Instagram has finally changed its algorithm in response to user feedback
Instagram announced today that in response to concerns users have been voicing for the last year and a half or so, it will be making changes to its feed algorithm to once again put focus on newer posts first.
Waaaay back in the day, Instagram feeds were chronological — i.e., showed the newest posts at the top of your feed when you opened the app. However, in 2016, that changed, with Instagram displaying posts based on popularity and relevancy. This was especially bad for creators, whose work would sometimes get buried underneath other, days-old posts that were only shown because they were deemed more relevant by Instagram's algorithm. To make matters worse, the company added an auto-refresh feature that would refresh your feed unexpectedly, causing you to lose your place and end up back at the top again, seeing the same old posts you'd been seeing. Lots of people were irked.
Now, it seems, Instagram is finally listening to its users. Starting today, when you open the app, newer posts will be more likely to appear first in your feed. That (hopefully) means no more missing out on posts that are important to you. And, if you're an artist, it means more eyes on your work once again.
In addition, the company is testing a "New Posts" button that lets you choose whether or not you want to refresh your Insta feed. If you tap the button, you'll refresh the app and be taken to new posts at the top of the feed. If you don't tap it, you'll stay right where you are, and the app won't refresh on its own when you aren't looking.
Instagram also hinted that they'd be tweaking and improving feed further, and would be sharing details over the next few months.
March 9, 2018 - GIF feature removed due to racial slur
If you're wondering where the GIF feature went on your Instagram Stories (or Snapchat) recently, the answer is simple: an extremely aggressive racial slur slipped past the sensors (full disclosure: IDK if they actually have sensors, but you get what I'm saying).
As soon as we were made aware, we removed the GIF and have disabled Giphy until we can be sure that this won't happen again . . . while we wait for Giphy's team to take a look at it. (Snapchat)
A source tells TechCrunch the same racist GIF was spotted in Instagram as well, indicating that Giphy is at fault... Giphy appears to have removed the GIF as it's no longer available in Instagram. An Instagram spokesperson tells TechCrunch 'This type of content has no place on Instagram. We have stopped our integration with Giphy as they investigate the issue.' (TechCrunch)
February 1, 2018 - Introducing Type Mode in Stories
You wanted different styles for your Instagram story text BAM.
You wanted to amp up the colors to match your aesthetic BAM.
Cycle between typewriter, neon, strong and modern text options with the latest update to Instagram stories.
Today, we're introducing "Type" mode in stories, a new way to share anything that's on your mind with creative text styles and backgrounds — no photo or video required. Now, you can turn your most random thoughts into something colorful and expressive.
January 18, 2018 - Like Facebook Messenger, Instagram will now share your activity status
Yes, once again, a social media site has found a way to get even more creepy and stalker-y — starting today, Instagram will join the likes of Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp in displaying the last time you were active in your friends' direct message inboxes. Now, when you check your DMs in the app, you'll be able to see the activity status of certain accounts.
The newly introduced feature is automatically enabled for every user, but thankfully you can actually turn it off within your account settings if you don't particularly feel like letting everyone know every time you check your phone. If you're worried about randos being able to view your activity status, though, don't be — you can only see the statuses of individuals you mutually follow or share a message thread with.
Though some people may see value in this sort of online voyeurism, the fact that it's only available to those you know does make it seem like its only use is to let others see when you're not answering their messages (and denying you any privacy re: how you spend your time).
To disable the feature, you just have to do the following:
- Go to your profile.
- Open Settings by tapping the little gear icon in the top righthand corner.
- Scroll down until you see Show Activity Status.
- Toggle it off.
Ta-da! Now go forth and check your Insta freely.
December 27, 2017 - Instagram is now displaying recommended posts in your main feed
As part of its continued effort to help users find more content relevant to their interests, Instagram has now inserted recommended posts directly into their main feeds. First reported by Sarah Perez over at TechCrunch, the quietly-released new feature saves you all the super strenuous effort of switching over to the Explore tab to find recommended posts by putting them smack dab in the middle of your regular Insta feed. According to Instagram's support documentation, Recommended for You will suggest posts you may like based on the content that have been liked by other accounts you follow.
This most recent change comes after another update that was focused on more effortlessly finding content from new accounts: the ability to follow hashtags. However, as Perez points out, you can't opt out of recommended posts like you can with the hashtags feature — instead, you can only temporarily hide them from your feed. You do this by tapping the three dots above the post then tapping Hide in the menu that appears at the bottom of your screen.
Though TechCrunch reports Instagram claims the section will only appear after you've viewed every new post in your feed, many users are still very vocal about their disdain for the feature, taking to Twitter to vent their frustration:
Bro Instagram definitely got lost in the sauce with all these “recommended for you” pics and showing posts from days ago...bruh we liked it when it was simple and organized— Ben Wegmann (@benwegmann) December 27, 2017
all this "recommended for you" business on Instagram needs to stop idk these people— e (@erikabanet) December 16, 2017

December 21, 2017 - Keep your friends caught up with your live videos by sending them via DM
Want to make sure your friends never miss when you're broadcasting live on Instagram Now you can! Today, Instagram announced in a blog post that users can now send live video — whether it's theirs or someone else's — in Direct.
Once you start your live broadcast, all you have to do is tap the Direct icon at the bottom of the screen to send your video to your friends. According to Instagram's announcement, you'll also have this option when going live with a friend. Once your message is sent, the recipient will be able to see the live video in their inbox, as they would a normal direct message. However, friends can only view your video in Direct while it's live, so if they don't hop on it ASAP, they'll just end up getting a message saying that the live video has ended. If you want to send a video that you're just watching and not a part of yourself, you can do that too — just like when sending your own live videos, all you have to do is tap the Direct icon at the bottom of the screen while you're viewing a live broadcast and choose who you want to send it to.
If you're not down with sending your live videos in Direct, you can disable the feature by going to your stories settings. If you have a private account and one of your followers attempts to share your current live video with someone who doesn't follow you, it won't work — only your followers will be allowed to view your live video.
Ta-da! Now you can access and share live videos you're excited about more easily than ever. Get streaming!
December 12, 2017 - You can now follow hashtags on Instagram!
Today in a blog post, Instagram announced that users can now follow hashtags on the social media platform, making it easier to discover photos, videos, and accounts relevant to your interests.
On Instagram, users usually tag their content with with relevant hashtags — #slime or #makeup, for instance. When they post their photo or video, other users can then find it by doing a search for those hashtags. In the past, if a user wanted to see more content related to their interests, they had to follow a myriad of separate accounts. With this update, they'll be able to follow hashtags themselves, allowing them to constantly find new content related specifically to the things they like.
To start following hashtags, all you have to do is do a search for a topic you're interested in (or, if you find a relevant hashtag on any post, you can tap on it). Once you do that, you'll see related hashtags displayed in your search results, as well as with suggested related accounts. When you find a hashtag you want to follow, just open the hashtag page and tap on the follow button. After that, you'll start to see popular posts and stories anyone creates using that hashtag. If you decide it's not your jam, you can always unfollow a hashtag at any time. If you want to know what your friends are into, you can also view the hashtags they follow on their profile (and maybe pick up some new interests yourself!).
December 5, 2017 - Instagram introduces Stories Archive and Stories Highlights
When Instagram introduced the ability to archive posts and share them later if you changed your mind, people were pretty excited — it's like if you delete that photo of you and your ex, it's gone forever, but if you archive it, you might be able to get back together without things being too awkward!
Now Instagram is taking things a step further with the newest Stories Archive and Stories Highlight options!
Stories Archive: you can now add Stories to the existing Archive feature. Stories will automatically save in your private archive for you to reference later. You can reshare Stories from your archive to your current Story, share them as a post in feed, add them to a highlight (more on that below), or turn off Stories Archive altogether.
Stories Highlights: a new space on your profile where you can group Stories you've previously shared into highlights and keep them on your profile. You can add as many highlights as you want from your archive and they'll appear as a horizontal scroll bar above your photo grid.
You'll even be able to customize and change your stories highlights depending on what you want seen and when.
November 29, 2017 - Request to join a Live Stream!
Let's say you see your bestie is Live Streaming on Insta and you think "Hey! I wanna get in on that!"
Well now you can request to join a Live Stream straight from your Insta account!
To request to join a live video a viewer can tap a request button in the comments section. Hosts see the request pop up in real time and can accept or deny, and also have access to a list of pending requests in case a bunch of different people are trying to join in. (TechCrunch)
November 28, 2017 - You can now draw mustaches (and other stuff) on your friends in Direct
Instagram announced in a blog post today that you can now remix your friends' photo messages and send them back, presumably to show them how fly they look with devil horns, goofy glasses, and a big snot bubble. (Or, y'know, maybe something more flattering. You do you.) In addition to doodling on the photo, you can also move it, resize it, and add fun stickers and text.
All you have to do to remix a friend's photo message is open it and tap the camera icon at the bottom. This will automatically create a sticker of what you're replying to (i.e. your friend's pic). You can then embellish it to your heart's content and send it back. Your friend can do the same, and you guys can go back and forth forever showing off your fantastic makeover skills in an endless visual duel. Fun, right
Today's update also includes a new feature that gives you more control over photo message replays. You can now choose "One View" for messages you want your friends to only be able to look at once. However, if you're cool with multiple views, you can choose "Allow Replay" so your pals can take another peep at your messages. Note that if you do select "Allow Replay," any photos and videos you send will play on a loop that the recipient can tap to pause.
If you haven't updated yet, we highly encourage you to do so so you can experience these fun new additions. Get to face doodlin'!
November 8, 2017 - You can now add older videos and photos from your Camera Roll to your Instagram story
Instagram announced on its blog today that you can now add any photo or video from your Camera Roll to your story, even if it was taken more than 24 hours ago. Prior to this update, Insta users could only add content if it was taken within a day of when they were attempting to post it, severely limiting the media they could share with their followers in story form.
To add an older photo or video to your story, all you have to do is swipe up or tap the small gallery icon at the bottom left of the screen to view your Camera Roll (as you would normally). Then select whatever you'd like to share by tapping it. If it's over 24 hours old, Instagram will automatically supply a new sticker showing the date the photo was taken. However, unlike on Snapchat (where adding an older photo or a photo taken outside the app gives you a telltale white frame), the timestamp isn't mandatory — you can choose to remove it if you'd like, leaving your story aesthetically uninhibited.
October 26, 2017 - ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM... with Instagram's new Superzoom feature
If you're like me and you find zooms hilarious, then the latest update to Instagram Stories is going to make you so, so, so happy.
Superzoom as it's called is the latest Instagram stories record feature on the app that goes alongside features like Boomerang, Rewind, Hands-free, and Live Mode, and it does exactly what it sounds like it does:
Highlight the tool in the story camera, choose the front- or rear-facing camera, and then tap the button. If you tap once you'll create a 3-second Superzoom; you can tap and hold to create a longer one. (Verge)
The best part All of your Superzooms will have dramatic music in the background, so now you can truly be the dramatic gopher you always dreamed of.
(http://blog.instagram.com/post/165759350412/170926-news) today that it's rolling out some new control features that allow you to keep your account a kind, safe place for you to express yourself. The new tools are as follows:
If you have a public Insta account, you'll now be able to hand-pick who is able to comment on your posts. According to Instagram, this can mean everyone or groups of people, such as only your followers or only people you follow. In addition, whether your account is public or private, you'll be able to block any person from commenting on your posts. The company is also expanding its offensive comments filter (which launched in June and only worked for English comments) to include Arabic, French, German and Portuguese.
Anonymous Reporting for Live Video
This feature allows you to anonymously report concerns you have for anyone streaming a live broadcast. This means that if you see that someone is in need of help or struggling with mental health concerns, you can reach out to Instagram. The user will then see "a message offering help with options to talk to a helpline, reach out to a friend or get other tips and support." The company says it has responders across the world working 24/7 in order to attend to those who require support as quickly as possible.
**Kindess Walls and new Kindness Stickers
Instagram is painting murals in different cities in order to turn walls into "kindness walls." Users can visit, take a photo or video, and share kind messages with their followers. The company also released new heart-shaped stickers specifically for use at kindness walls.
For more info on Instagram's commitment to fostering a gentle and encouraging environment, you can visit the Instagram Together page.
September 21, 2017 - Instagram introduces Live Face Filters
Instagram announced on its blog today that you can now play around with Face Filters while you're streaming video using Instagram Live.
If you want to use a Face Filter during your broadcast, all you have to do is tap the icon that looks like a sparkling face in the bottom right-hand corner. You can then scroll through the Face Filters on the bottom of your screen and tap the one you like to activate it. Instagram is also offering a special sunglasses Face Filter that will be available exclusively in Live video for the next week. If you use it, after you've selected it you can tap to change the scenery that's reflected in your virtual lenses.
Once you've finished streaming, you can either choose to save the video to your story or discard it.
September 18, 2017 - Instagram for iOS changes how autoplay functions
Up until this point, Instagram has autoplayed videos on mute as you scroll through your feed, only playing the clips with sound once you tap them. However, now when you tap one autoplayed video to hear it with sound, all future videos you see on your feed will autoplay with sound. This will reset every time you close the app.
Don't worry though - even during a single Insta-scrolling session, if you don't want to hear sound on any further videos, you can silence them once again by tapping on them just as you did to hear the audio in the first place.
August 31st, 2017 - You can now watch Instagram Stories online!
Never fear, online Instagram Stories are here!
Instagram announced today that you will soon be able to watch Instagram Stories on online browsers!
Before, users could only view videos/images, comment, like, and search their Instagram accounts on Instagram.com, but now stories will appear at the top of your feed, just like they do in the app itself.
To skip or go back to a specific story, all you have to do is tap the left and right arrows.
Stories has quickly become an important part of the Instagram experience — over 250 million people use it every day to see what their friends are doing in the moment. Now we're excited to bring stories to people who use Instagram on the web. (Instagram)
August 29th, 2017 - PRAISE THE 'GRAM: You can upload portrait and landscape shots in Instagram photo galleries
Don't be such a square: upload your Instagram galleries with portrait and landscape photos ASAP!
Starting today, you can choose landscape and portrait formats when sharing multiple photos and videos in one post. (Instagram Blog)
When Instagram first announced their gallery idea where people were able to put multiple photos in a series into one post, the Internet went wild — and for good reason! You no longer needed to clutter people's timelines with your 10 photos of your weekend trip to the lake.
One thing that people were bummed out about was the fact that you were only able to upload square images: this meant that if you had a beautiful portrait shot of a group of friends, or a stunning landscape shot of a sunset on the horizon, you were SOL.
Now Instagram has made some changes, and starting today, you can now upload your photos and videos in both landscape and portrait formats!
Oh, and before you ask...
To keep the experience smooth and consistent, however, all photos and videos in your post must be shared in the same format. (Instagram Blog)
August 15, 2017 - Instagram adds comment threads
Looking to improve upon the conversations that take place in the comments section, Instagram is adding threaded replies to comments.
When you hit reply underneath a comment on a post, you'll be replying directly to their comment and Instagram will nest your comment beneath theirs. The company says it's a much better way to keep track of conversations:
Comment threads help you keep track of conversations and make it easy to respond to a specific thread. This update will make your feed an even better place to share interests, get inspired and connect with others.
I'll admit I've enjoyed reading through some silly arguments in the comments of famous folks' Instagram posts. Now instead of scrolling through hundreds of comments and trying to sort through the mess, you'll be able to see all the action in one thread! Or you can, y'know, "get inspired and connect with others," as Instagram puts it.
The new feature is available in the latest versions of Instagram on both iOS and Android.
August 8, 2017 - Instagram testing new feature that'll let you broadcast live with a friend
Instagram is testing a new live video feature. The feature lets you add a guest to your broadcast, creating a split-screen viewing experience between the two of you. Instagram says live video can be a little intimidating and lonely, and this feature is meant to help with that:
Now, you can hang out and go live together, whether you're just doing homework or catching up on your day. Live video helps you share in an authentic way, but sometimes it can be intimidating when you're on your own.
Next to the switch camera icon in the bottom right corner of the screen, you'll find a new button that lets you add someone who's currently watching your broadcast. Instagram says you'll be able to remove the guest at any time, swap them out for someone else, or let them exit the broadcast on their own.
Although Instagram seems to be marketing it as a means of hanging out with a friend (while others watch), the real value is arguably its use as a live interview tool. You can also use it to pull in a viewer for a more back-and-forth interaction.
The new feature is currently in testing with "a small percentage of [Instagram users]," but it's expected to roll out to everyone over the next few months.
Share a Replay of Your Live Video to Instagram Stories
On June 20th, Instagram announced that they're going to start rolling out the option for users to share a replay of their live videos directly to their Instagram Stories!
When your broadcast has ended, you'll be able to tap "Share" at the bottom of the screen to add your replay to Instagram Stories for 24 hours. You can also tap the toggle and choose "Discard," and your live video will disappear from the app as usual.
Instagram is letting users send links in direct messages now!
Yup, you read that right! Instagram's latest major update is for it's Direct messaging feature: users can now send links directly!
On top of that, the app is also adding automatic links to phone numbers and addresses, which is incredibly helpful while conversing with pals over Insta.
Additionally, the update adds support for both landscape and portrait pictures sent through Direct. So, instead of weirdly cropping your pictures, they'll now show up properly in their intended dimensions.
Instagram has introduced Snapchat-style augmented reality face filters. Here's everything you need to know!
One of the reasons Snapchat has become so popular over the last couple of years has been because of the app's AR (or augmented reality) face filters AKA World Lenses.
If you're ever been swiping through Tinder or scrolling through Facebook and have noticed a photo of a girl with a dog nose, floppy ears, and sometimes a big tongue, that feature is actually from a super popular Snapchat AR filter that blew up last year once the Kardashians got their hooks into it.
Now Instagram has announced that their following the filter hysteria and introducing their very own AR filters to Instagram stories!
Today, we're introducing face filters in the camera, an easy way to turn an ordinary selfie into something fun and entertaining. Whether you're sitting on the couch at home or you're out and about, you can use face filters to express yourself and have playful conversations with friends.
How many filters will there be to choose from
There are allegedly 8 AR face filter options, but there's nothing stopping the app from (yet again) copying Snapchat and adding and updating new ones every day/week.
How does it work
Face filters will work with Instagram's built-in Boomerang feature which creates short loops, and both rewind and hands-free mode work with the new feature. After you capture a photo with a face filter, you can use Instagram's existing markup features to draw over the image, add stickers, and more.
When will this feature be launched
How can I find it
There will be a new 'face effect' icon that will appear in Instagram's main camera section.

We have no association with Instagram.
We wanted to create something for our users to do together, and we thought creating a little "game of likes" would be quite fun. It's a nice way to see and like other people's pictures, and being able to expect the same in return if you want to! We think it could become an easier way for some people to get noticed and get followers too Speccy

Wondering if you can post to Instagram from desktop
NOW YOU CAN! Just announced January 30, Instagram has enabled the Instagram Graph API.
Today, we’re introducing new features to the API, such as allowing businesses to schedule posts, view posts they’ve been tagged in and view other business profiles.
This change will only apply to business accounts, and only when you use one of their Facebook Marketing Partners or Instagram Partners.
Currently, approved partners Tailwind, HootSuite, and Iconosquare have enabled automatic posting to Instagram.
But now, with Tailwind, HootSuite, or Iconosquare, you don’t have to manually post to an Instagram business account. You can schedule your post and have it published automatically.
Auto-posting with a non-approved service is not okay with Instagram and could get your account closed. Additionally, non-partner tools are using the old API that’s being phased out… so beware.
10 Ways to Post to Instagram from Desktop with Scheduling
You can’t schedule Instagram posts without a third-party tool. But you have options!
Just remember that Instagram doesn’t allow uploads via their API except with approved partners, so some of these are workarounds. Check them out to see which is best for you.
The Instagram desktop methods below fall into 4 groups:
- Schedulers that let you set up your posts and automatically publish for you.
- Schedulers that let you set up your posts and send you a reminder on your phone.
- Schedulers that set up your posts and then post for you via mobile devices or emulators.
- Emulators that allow you to post right on your desktop.
Of these, the first group is definitely sanctioned by Instagram because they’re approved partners. Click to jump here.
The second group should be OK with Instagram because you do the actual posting from your own device. Click to jump here.
The third group is not sanctioned by Instagram and could possibly get your account closed – though three of them have told me it’s never happened.
The fourth group might be okay with Instagram. I can’t guarantee it, though.
There are 3 more options if you just need to get stuff from your computer to your mobile device for posting. Click to jump here.
NOTE: Prices checked and updated July 28, 2017, but are subject to change. I’m an affiliate for some of these products and may receive a referral fee if you purchase.
Why Would You Want to Use One of These Instagram Tools
Instagram was created as a share-the-moment social media network. Its intention was sharing moments as you’re experiencing them. But it’s evolved and expanded as new communities have come to love Instagram.
With these tools:
- Brands can keep a constant and cohesive presence.
- Photographers can easily post dSLR photos from their computer.
- Designers can use their favorite desktop tools and share on IG.
- Videographers can edit on desktop and share directly to Instagram.
- The visually creative can plan a kick-ass profile page.
The tools that include scheduling allow you to plan a consistent look to your account, as well as to post when you’re busy working – or even off-grid.
The last group of tools allows you to post even if you don’t own a smart device.
One recent feature of Instagram: Now you can open an account via instagram.com – no need for a smart device.
This is it! The brand-new feature that allows you to schedule Instagram posts for your business account – and have them automatically published!
If you don’t want to (or can’t) use the auto-post feature, you can use one of these to send a notification when it’s time to post.
Reasons to use these tools:
- Automatically publish photo and caption to a business account.
- Get images and video from computer to your phone to manually post.
- Plan a constant and cohesive presence.
- Set a schedule and not forget when to post.
- Browser-based, or use the mobile app version.
- They’re approved Instagram / Facebook Partners!
Here are a few reasons why you might want to use these tools with notifications instead of auto-posting:
- You have a personal, not business, Instagram account.
- You need to post a video. Auto posting video is not yet supported.
- You want to post a multi-image or carousel post (not yet supported).
- You like to use Instagram filters.
- You simply prefer to post live.
Still, these tools are your best bet as they’re approved partners! They have access to the latest API and features, and won’t put your account at risk.
TailWind calls their service “The Most Intuitive Instagram Scheduler Available.” It serves up a lot of great features, including the incredibleHashtag Finder.
- Smart Schedule
- Automatically publish photo and caption to business account
- Bulk upload on desktop

HootSuite is an inexpensive, full-featured social media management tool. They’ve added Instagram scheduling to their lineup of Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. As an Instagram partner, HootSuite can now post directly to Instagram.
HootSuite includes loads of helpful account management features. Check out how you can easily follow and interact with targeted accounts, hashtags, and locations. Very useful – in addition to managing your own accounts.

Iconosquare is another Instagram Partner scheduling tool that’s enabled auto-publishing.
I haven’t had time to try it yet, but wanted you to know of this option.
For a 14-day free trial, click here to try Iconosquare. A starter account costs $9 per month or $81 paid a year in advance for 1 account. 100K follower limit, email support only.
These tools aren’t smartphone-free solutions. They send a reminder to your mobile device at the time you scheduled your post. You still need a mobile device to complete the posting.

A free desktop option for scheduling is Later.com. You can upload images and schedule your posts from desktop, and the images will be sent to your phone.
It has a 2.5 star rating on the iTunes app store due to reported bugs (latest version doesn’t have a star rating yet). But I know a few people who swear by it! Free version available for one or two accounts. You can upload video in the paid version. No bulk upload available.
Here’s a full-featured tool that lets you manage all your visual content in one place – not just for Instagram, but also Pinterest, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and LinkedIn.
- Bulk upload and editing tools included.
- Create original content with their Canva integration.
- Customize your message, image dimensions, and posting time for each social network.
- Add multiple RSS feeds, Instagram, and Flickr accounts to curate content easily.
- Chrome extension to pick images from any site in an instant, and schedule them in bulk.
- “Recycling” feature that automatically recycles your top-performing evergreen content.
- Collaborate and plan your social media with your team on a shared marketing calendar.
- Organize your content from Dropbox, Google Drive, Flickr, and social media in your custom dashboard.
- Measure the success of your content with Viraltag website traffic and social analytics.
- Learn best times to post and which content drives more engagement.
This looks like a great tool and I hope to find time to give ViralTag a test run. Current cost after 14-day trial: $24 per month, and up.

CrowdFire’s Publish (formerly called TakeOff) feature allows you to schedule Instagram photos at the best suggested time to get the most likes and engagement with your picture. Or choose to post immediately, or at a time you specify.
Publish suggests hashtags to use. You can “add all” hashtags, but most are irrelevant to your image, so don’t.
There’s also an app for iOS and Android to schedule via your phone. Free version available.
Schedule posts to Instagram via the Socialdraft dashboard and you’ll receive an SMS (no additional mobile app needed). Socialdraft puts all of your content for Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn into one easy to read calendar. You can’t upload video, but you can upload posts in bulk via CSV files (Excel spreadsheets). For that, the images must exist on the web as you’ll need to link to them.
One benefit of SocialDraft is that you can easily visualize your content on your various social networks on the same content calendar. This comes with a high price tag, though. Current cost after 14-day trial: $80 per month, and up. 30% discount if you pay for a year in advance.
Instagram Scheduling Tools That Post for You
OK, these are cool in that you can schedule posts and not worry about being available to post them via your smart phone later. The only problem is that these aren’t approved by Instagram – so they could get your account closed. It may be unlikely (3 have told me it’s never happened) but it’s still possible.
These tools post to your Instagram account as you, via smart devices or emulators.
All of these are specific to Instagram scheduling only. Wisel.it allows you to post to Pinterest and Twitter at the same time if you choose – though you could set up an IFTTT recipe for any of the others.
Note that you’ll need to set up your Instagram account first (which you can now do on instagram.com), and it’s recommended that you verify your email and post about 6 photos via smart phone before using one of these tools.
From your desktop, you can post now or schedule your post for later with Schedugr.am. And you don’t need to be available to post later, as with the group of tools above. I’m told the posting is done from a bank of actual tablets at Schedugr.am headquarters in Australia!
As far as I know, this is the only option that includes the ability to post a comment with the picture and caption. If you like to place your hashtags in the first comment, this is an excellent feature. You can upload videos, and single or bulk upload photos. Editing tools include cropping, retouching, adding effects and enhancing your images.
Schedugram seems the fullest featured and best-known – I love that it allows bulk image upload. But it’s also the most expensive.
Schedugr.am has a 7-day free trial, and the monthly fee after that starts at $20 per Instagram account.
Here’s another option: Wisel.it. It appears to work similarly to Schedugr.am. The owners tell me they’re using “smartphones and devices” to post to your accounts.
Wisel.it allows you to add multiple accounts, which is handy if you have a personal account and one or more business accounts. As mentioned above, your Instagram post can be set up to post to Twitter and Pinterest at the same time.
Wisel.it has a free 7-day trial with monthly fee afterwards, starting at only $4.99 for one account with limited posts and followers.
Formerly Instapult. I learned of this one recently, as they’ve been assertively letting everyone who tweets my HootSuite post know about their option.
Onlypult includes editing tools and the ability to upload and schedule videos.
I’m uncertain on this one, as it was created by hackers. It’s inexpensive though: currently $8.40/month for 3 accounts, $14 for 7, or $27.30 for up to 20. If you want to check them out: Onlypult.
This option was recommended by a reader. They tell me they’re emulating Androids on their servers and Instagram would not be able to tell the difference.
Push.Photo has a free trial of a week, and then it’s $9.75 a month for 2 Instagram accounts, $19.50 for 5, or $24.38 for 10.
Instagram Tools That Post Directly from Desktop (No Scheduling)
These might be a lifesaver if you don’t own a smart phone or tablet. That said, these can tend to be buggy. But, they’re free, and may be your best option if you don’t have a smart phone or a budget for one of the tools above.
NOTE: I can’t guarantee that these methods are sanctioned by Instagram.
One way to run the mobile app on your computer is through software called BlueStacks. BlueStacks App Player lets you run your favorite mobile apps fullscreen in your browser and on PC. Since you’re running the mobile app, you can open a new account via BlueStacks.
BlueStacks is an emulator. You can give it a try, but I’ve heard it’s a bit quirky and requires some patience. However, it is free!
To upload a photo from your desktop, click the camera button, then select the polaroid icons in the lower-right of the app window. This will prompt you to select a photo from your drive. (If you use Instagram on Android, this entire process will be familiar.) Then, edit and upload the photo as usual. source
InPic (formerly InstaPic)
Another way to Instagram on your computer – including being able to register an account – is using the app InPic (formerly called InstaPic) on Windows. If you want to give this one a try, you can find it here.
Unfortunately, this one’s only available for Windows.
An option that I previously couldn’t recommend is Gramblr. There were many reports of hashtags posted via Gramblr being disabled, and even accounts being blocked. It seems like they have addressed these problems with the 2.0 release.
Here are 2 differing reviews from their site, so I don’t know what to tell you!
Gramblr is the only program out there that I have seen with the ability to post directly to Instagram via PC. They appear to have fixed all the bugs with broken hashtags, an earlier complaint for many users. Thus far, I have been floored by the results that Gramblr provides, especially for a free program! ~xeibriel
Okay, I don’t know what the other reviewers are thinking, but Gramblr isn’t working for me, point-blank. I will start it, enter my name and password and nothing, I mean literally nothing will happen when I click ‘Login’. ~guest
Gramblr includes photo editing, cropping, filters, and stickers. Looks like fun – if it works for you!
If you simply need to move dSLR photos or graphics you created on your computer to your phone, you can bypass the tools mentioned above.
Mac Photos App
Have an iPhone, and using the Photos desktop app on your Mac Simply right-click any photo and choose Share –> iCloud photo sharing. If you haven’t already, create a shared album and you’ll see it as one of your photo albums right in the Instagram app. Easy-peasy.
If you’re not all Apple, or you’re retouching or creating images in Photoshop, then use Dropbox. It’s a free app that you’ll install on both your computer and your smart device. Then simply copy the items on your desktop to a Dropbox folder (mine’s named IG – clever huh).
To copy files on a Mac, go to your Finder, open the folder containing the image(s), and option-click on the one(s) you want to copy. Drag to the Dropbox folder and you’ll find them on your phone app instantly. Tap on the image and save it to your camera roll.
If you sign up for a FREE account, I’ll get more storage space on mine. So go ahead, do it, you know you want to!
(Did I mention it’s FREE And very useful!)
• • • Get a FREE DropBox account • • •
The lowest tech option of all is to email yourself a photo from your computer. This is cumbersome if you’re using high resolution photos, as you’ll be emailing yourself often!
Which Instagram Posting App is Best for You
Note which of these is affiliated with Instagram. As far as I know, TailWind, HootSuite, and Iconosquare are the only official Instagram Partners that have enabled auto-posting.
As Instagram pursues businesses and advertisers, they’ve updated their API to make posting from desktop easier for business accounts – but only through an approved partner.

說到「 Instagram 」這款拍照、修圖與最重要的攝影分享社群應用，在四五年前可能還是比較偏向攝影玩家的小眾作品分享，不過即使是那時候，也已經是 iPhone 與 Android 上最紅的一款全面性的拍照 App （參考：Instagram Android App 下載！最紅 iPhone 拍照分享社群）。 時移境遷，現在的 Instagram 不僅更加火熱，甚至成為青少年之間「透過照片傳遞生活點滴」的最佳社群 App ，一方面 Instagram 便於拍攝照片、便於修圖，能夠輕鬆製作出好看有意思的照片，另外一方面它有很方便的社群聊天、喜愛機制，也能和 Facebook 同步結合。
當我的妹妹、我的堂弟也都陸續成為 Instagram 的愛用者，甚至我的堂弟還跟我說他們學校同學都喜歡用 Instagram 傳照片後，我就決定來寫一篇「最完整挖掘 Instagram 攝影修圖技巧」的文章，提供給有興趣的朋友參考。或許對一般使用者來說常常搞不清楚各種修圖功能的意義與用法，那麼希望這篇完整教學可以對 Instagram 愛用者們有所幫助。
2015/8/28 新增：Instagram 大更新，照片影片不再只能正方形！
Instagram App 與網頁版按下「 Instagram 」中間的拍照按鈕，就可以拍下照片，或是讀取相簿裡的照片開始進行修圖，而修圖的第一步是「裁剪」。
雖然說是裁切，但其實他真正的意義是「重新調整你的構圖」，在 Instagram 中只能展示正方形的照片，而在裁剪照片過程中我們可以移動照片位置，找出哪一處的正方形構圖角度最漂亮，最能表達意境。
例如最常見的左右上下對稱，或是下圖中決定要放入兩座大小山峰看起來更有動態感，構圖常常就影響了整個照片是否吸引人的關鍵。（說到構圖，推薦大家延伸參考：被罵不懂構圖技巧？ Camera51 拍照苦手秒懂拍人像）
完成構圖裁切後，就進入大家使用「 Instagram 」時最常利用的「套用濾鏡」功能，通常一般用戶應該都很難理解每一個濾鏡名稱的意義，但是在「 Instagram 」中可以透過濾鏡上的「預覽圖」來大概的得知如果套用這個濾鏡的話會變成什麼樣的顏色風格，這是選擇使用哪個濾鏡時一個快速的技巧。 另外滑動到濾鏡清單的最右方，按下［管理］，可以決定哪些濾鏡要出現？哪些你絕對不使用的濾鏡不要出現？以及哪些常用濾鏡要排列在最前方？ 例如你最喜歡黑白照片，就可以把黑白濾鏡排列到最前方。 每個濾鏡其實都可以調整強度，但很多「 Instagram 」用戶可能沒有發現這個功能。
怎麼在「 Instagram 」中新增相框？有時候一些故意拍攝的復古照片、記念照片，套上相框會更有感覺，這時候一樣先套用某個濾鏡，然後再點一次進入濾鏡微調畫面，點擊右方的［相框］按鈕，就能套用屬於這個濾鏡的專屬相框了。 在所有的修圖功能中，「 Instagram 」特別把「 LUX 」這個功能獨立出來，成為套用濾鏡、 LUX 、細節修圖三大選項中的一個，那麼 LUX 有什麼作用呢？
簡單的說，這是一個全面自動最佳化照片的功能，把 LUX 拉桿往右方拉動，那麼你的照片就會變得更加色彩鮮明、細節處會更加浮現，修正一般手機拍照時可能的各種不夠好看的缺點。所以下次要修圖前，別忘了先試試看 LUX 拉桿。 接著我們進入套用濾鏡、 LUX 、細節修圖三大功能中的細節修圖編輯頁面，這時候可以看到下方有許多修圖按鈕，讓我們一一來看看有什麼關鍵作用。 在［調整］中，我們可以再一次改變構圖的位置，只要按住照片左右上下移動就能找到新的構圖畫面。 而在下方的旋轉按鈕中轉動，就能讓照片開始旋轉，把不正的、拍歪的、顛倒的照片一一扶正。
前幾天在介紹「Snapseed 2 最神奇的修圖 App 不可錯過七大新功能」時，提到新版 Snapseed 2 有 3D 立體調整拍照視角的功能，而這個功能在「 Instagram 」中也具備。
而對整個照片氣氛改變最大的則是「 Instagram 」中的「暖色調節」，往右拉是「暖色調」，適合表現秋天、黃昏等景色。往左拉是「冷色調」，適合表現冬天、清晨等景色。 或者你也可以把一張平淡的照片加上暖色調節，展現出不同的秋冬風情。
在「 Instagram 」的飽和度選項裡，往右拉讓照片的各種顏色更佳艷麗，會讓照片呈現五彩繽紛的調性。而往左拉則會讓各種顏色對比不明顯，呈現出黑白水墨的氛圍。 在最新版「 Instagram 」中新增的「顏色」功能是一個很強大的濾鏡，我可以決定照片的「陰影」、「亮部」各要套上什麼顏色的濾鏡效果，呈現出和原本不同的色彩。
例如下圖我把陰影處的樹林套上紅色，就呈現出更有秋天感覺的樹林。或是我把下圖中的亮部處天空套上綠色，就呈現出像是 LOMO 風格的天空。
如果喜歡日系攝影風格的玩家，那麼一定要試試看「 Instagram 」中的「淡化」，以實際效果來說就像是幫照片套上一層霧面鏡，彷彿透過什麼窗戶去窺探這個世界的風格，也讓照片呈現出清新淡雅的風貌。 一張照片會有比較亮的地方、比較暗的地方，如果一整張照片調亮時，暗的地方清楚了，但亮的地方就會過亮。
這時候利用「 Instagram 」中獨立的「亮部」、「陰影」調整功能就能解決問題，我可以單獨把太亮的天空調暗，單獨把太暗的樹林調亮。
如果想要模擬老相機、老照片的感覺，那麼就試試看「 Instagram 」中的「 Vignette 」功能，可以幫照片四周加上老照片專有的暈影效果。
而移軸鏡功能則是讓照片中的指定處清楚，並朝著四周漸漸模糊化的效果，可以製造出類似淺景深的特效（適合用圓形的移軸鏡），或是製造出景物像是模型般的氛圍（適合用長條型的移軸鏡）。 使用時，可以決定中間清晰處的位置，並且用雙指縮放來改變中央處的大小。 想要更進階用手機拍出淺景深照片，那麼就要試試看下面兩款相機：
- Google 相機 App 驚豔上架，實測景深相機、HDR、360全景
- AfterFocus Android iPhone模擬光場相機，淺景深自動對焦
以上，就是「 Instagram 」中值得好好利用的 17 種修圖功能，以及他們具備什麼實際效果？和如何活用他們？的完整教學，希望對喜愛「 Instagram 」分享照片的朋友有所幫助，也歡迎喜歡 Instagram 的朋友一起加入我的 Instagram 社群。 而這些修圖功能的利用技巧，當然也可以套用在其他修圖 App 之上喔！希望下次大家看到各種修圖功能時，不會再搞不清楚要怎麼修圖了。
