How to Repost on Instagram

Here's the Right Way to Repost Instagram Photos

Instagram is among 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.

@John15252334 Thats probably due to hashtags! ?Hashtags make your likes go significantly high, like #likeforlike will automatically give you atleast 20 likes so the more you hastag the more the likes!

I notice a couple of folks I follow on Instagram seem to repost their own photos, usually a few times a month. The likes for many of these photos are over 10K! How is it possible to repost one of your own photos with the Likes and Comments still attached? That seems to be the only way to explain how they can get so many likes. Seems unreasonable to believe someone could get over 25K Likes within a minute of posting a photo.
