Did you know that there is a simple tool that will repost your favourite images to Instagram?

Repost for Instagram makes it easy to repost your favorite photos & videos on Instagram while giving credit to the original Instagramer.

Repost photos & videos on Instagram — Repost App

Here’s how it works

  1. Copy the link to the post you’d like to share. You’ll find this by clicking on the three dots to the right of the image.

Quick reminder from Repost: “Before you repost, it is best to request permission from the original poster. The easiest way is to DM them or leave a comment on the post with a thoughtful request, highlighting why you’d like to share their post.”

2. Once you’ve copied the link to the Instagram post, paste it into the field:

Repost will fetch the media and apply the proper watermark on the next page.

3. Tap the Download button to download the media to your device. You can also tap the caption and hashtag field to copy to your clipboard.

4. Open the Instagram app and post the downloaded media from your photos to your Instagram feed. You can also paste the caption if you copied it from step 3.

A couple of things to note

Repost works best with the web app version of Instagram — which I imagine may be quite a significant drawback for most people.

Repost is free to use. However, some features require a Pro subscription.

What do you think of this tool? Is it something you’d use? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
