How to Repost a Photo on Instagram

how to repost on instagram

Hey hey!  I realized after I posted about Tips for Mods the other day that I really focused on how to make a grid collage.  Reposting a single image for a solo feature is pretty easy, but just in case there are some new mods out there looking for a quick and easy way to do it.

I still see some mods and hubs use an app (I use Repost when I need to repost videos, which I rarely do…) But I don’t really like the way it looks, at least with the free version of those apps, which create a watermark on the reposted image.

A watermark sounds cool in theory, but in practice, it detracts from the image on a small viewing format, like Instagram on your phone.  I prefer not to have reposted images watermarked, but – always credit the photographer both in your caption AND tag the photo with their @username.

Here’s a quick video tutorial on how to do this.  Pretty simple – take a screenshot, use your phone’s editing tool to crop it to the composition that the photographer chose, then post it to your account.  Easy peasy, but have a look if you want to see it in action.
