Share an Instagram image or video on your profile

Whether you are a simple lambda user, a public figure or even a professional photographer, sharing your images or videos allows you to stay in touch with your subscribers.

How to do ? You must first log into the mobile application – it is useful to specify this, because it is not possible to share your photos or even your videos from the site. So here are the steps to follow:

  • Launch the Instagram app.
  • Enter your credentials and log in to the application.
  • Once on the home page, you will see a button “+”at the top right of the screen.

  • Click the button “+”, then select an image or video from your gallery. If you’d rather grab this straight from your phone, tap on the little camera roll icon on the bottom right.
  • Then press “Next”. You can then add a filter to the selected image or video.

  • Log in to Instagram.
  • Click the button “+”at the top right of the screen.
  • Scroll the bottom right screen to “History”.
  • Take your picture and press “Next”.
