How to Repost on Instagram

Here's the Right Way to Repost Instagram Photos



Instagram is amoung our first-thing-in-the-morning go-to apps, but its almost too simple interface has us wanting functions available on other social networks, chief among them: the repost (also known as a retweet, reblog, or share depending on your social site of choice). Fear not 'Grammers, discover the ways to share a picture you more than just love and give credit to the original poster while doing so.



  • Repost for Instagram (free for iOS and Android) — View your feed in this app, then tap on a picture you'd like to repost. The user's account and profile picture automatically appear as a bar on the image that can be rotated. Hit repost to open and share the photo in the native Instagram app.
  • Repost on Iconosquare — If you use the web client Iconsquare (formerly Statigram) to view Instagram while on a browser, click on the picture you want to share, and find the repost button below the photo. Select that to preview an image of the to-be-shared pic with a reshare icon in the upper left corner (as seen above). Click "Send me by email," to receive an email from Statigram with the preview image attached. Save that to your phone's photo library and upload to Instagram as normal. Though the original photographer's name appears in the photo, don't forget to give them an extra shout-out in the caption.
  • Repost on WebstaWebsta (formerly Webstagram) users can apply the same directions as the above Statigram reposting method and have the picture, marked with the original poster's name, emailed.
