Repost other user´s Instagram Pics thanks to Statigram

.

You think your “Likes” are not enough. “Repost” and promote the pics you liked!

.
Sometimes you would like to share photos on Instagram from your followings to your followers to make them discover a new photograph or a photo which thrilled you or made you laugh.

But it’s quite difficult to do that in a ” natty way” while also respecting other author copyrights.

.
That’s the reason why Statigram just released today the “repost” feature.

.

But how does it work?

.

Below each photo on Statigram website you will see a “Repost” button ( using the same icon as “retweet function” on Twitter).

.

It will generate a perfect snapshot of the photo you want to repost with the username of the author and a link to discover his feed.

You just have to Click “Send” and the snapshot will be sent to  your iphone, ready to be shared through Instagram.

.
Please let us know what do you think about this new feature.

  2. I have to say I’m on the fence about this. While I think it has potential, I think it could possibly make IG accounts of users posting pictures that are not their own even more prevalent. If they are going to allow our photos to easily be reposted, they should allow us the right to opt out of the feature.

    • That is a great point! clearly, you can see on the photo that it is not the original and it came from someone elses IG, not yours. I would opt out just for the fact that i don’t want someone to post my photos.

  3. I think it’s wrong to post other people’s pictures on instagram. The purpose of instagram is to post your OWN pictures of YOUR life, not someone elses. It even says do on the IG website. Lately, I have seen people making the popular page with stolen Photographs (getting them tons of followers praising their “work”). This makes it even harder for legitimate photographers to make the popular page. If people want to post and give credit for other people’s work, there are plenty of sites like Pinterest to do so! I really hope you don’t make it even easier for people to steal and take credit for others’ art.

    • Hi Liz,
      I think there is a misunderstanding. One thing is repost pics of other people in way to promote them and clearly (like in this case) showing the nick and its a repost (the use of arrows is also important) and avoid to be used as a trick to gain followers of likes.. its a very important tool for people who manage our groups of iNSTAGRAMERS that locally promote users each days. In the other hand, we do agree that using other users pics is something not really respectable and we published an article about that more than 6 or 7 months ago, called stolenpics,
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts

    • that’s tru, but say something touched YOU in YOUR life and you want ur friends to see that?
      Say ur following someone and ur friends arent for a personal important reason?
      I think reposting is a way that u can share quotes that touched YOU and changed YOUR life. think about it, havent you ever seen someone elses great idea and been like, ‘hey, i like that’ So u decided to share it to ur friends and they’ll be like-‘wow thats really cool’
      I think its fine to repost as long as u give credit if u can ( u noe who posted it originally ) or say where it came from

  4. WOW…at first I was very excited thinking that it would be a great idea but you have a point about people stealing your work or passing it on as their’s or what ever just to get more followers. So maybe rethinking it. maybe you could work it out somehow. I have to say though, I got excited for minute. Technicalities.

    • HI Lucy,

      As I said above to liz, you may misunderstand the use of this tool. Reposting with this tool in a way to gain followers or likes would be a mistake..

      • Instagram isn’t about how many followers you have. It’s about your own personal photos.

  5. I am interning for a convention and visitors bureau, and we are trying to make it so that we can repost other peoples pictures of our city onto our own account to share via our Facebook Instagram tab… And needless to say we are having very little luck. I’ve searched the internet all day and have not been able to find anything. I feel that this ‘reposting feature’ from Statigram is a multistep process that is quite time consuming. Does anyone have a solution or an idea of what we could do?

    • Hi Austin,
      Instagram doesnt make it easy as it will be terrible and dangerous if people could repost easily thousands and thousand of pics.. We talked in this blog, many months ago about the #stolenpics virus of people robbing pics… i think statigram is the best way to use another user pic and promote the user/owner of the pic too.
      Another possibility would be to use one of the tools of slides shows using the tag function. Have a look to our “links” section. Thanks!

      • Phil,
        Thank you so much for responding! I did see a link on there that we may use. How would one go about adding a facebook tab that would pull only pictures with a certain tag? For instance if I wanted to just pull instagram pictures of apples (#apples) on a facebook tab, how would I go about that? example: https://www.facebook.com/SeeAustralia?sk=app_286339878066364

        Thanks so much!

  7. Hi! I’ve reposted pictures using statigram, but they don’t appear on my feed. I only get the ‘send by email’ button. How can I make the pictures to be part of my feed? thanks!

    Reply
  8. Isn’t that why I get notifications and can send notifications by typing “@usnername”? It sounds like a redundant app I won’t be using. I’ll stick to my own photos, or photos of me taken by someone (it’s hard to take photos of yourself without a timer or an up close shot). @jenniferlouise_zhale

  9. Are there a repost button on instagram for android?

  10. i like it although the whole recycle sign in the top left corner is kind of annoying when you have a picture with writing on it so you cant see the whole picture please try to take it off

    Reply
  11. Hmm. My account is set to private because I prefer it to be private. I know about screen captures and all that but I didn’t expect another website to actually facilitate what amounts to a violation of good faith. I would be fine with this feature if both parties were required to have Statigr.am, and there were a way to opt out, and if Statigr.am would alert users when their work has been reposted. Until there is better accountability, I am very much against this. Plus (honestly) screen capping without attribution seems about 3 steps easier.

  17. I don’t understand how to repose on instagram and I saw a pic that says “I ordered a package with one direction stuff in it and 2 packages came so if you repost this you have a chance to win the 2nd package” so I am a BIG one directioner and I REALLY need that 2nd package how do I repost so that I can actually have a chance of getting the package?

  21. Today my pic was featured by @pics_united. I want to share with my IG Friends. I checked in web site but I could not find “Repost Icon”. Plz help.

  22. I think the purpose of this isn’t to steal other people’s MADE photos but animated kinds that ask u to repost or like or have a funny catch to it or a character like “cereal guy.” Could everyone stop being so smart about this? I mean, half the people on Instagram happen to be kids and I’m sure no one gives about plagiarism in the world of JUST HAVING FUN. so calm your butts down and stop acting like total downers, alright. I think this is a cool idea.

  23. I’m trying to do a repost and received the email but it won’t let me open the file (.am extension) and I can’t see the photos in my gallery from IG. I have a Samsung Infuse 4g

  24. U people seem to be very inept. This is not about stealing other people’s work. The pictures are clearly marked with a repost icon and identifies the original Instagrammer. There are tons of accounts that run Daily contests and they feature the winner. When that winner is featured, they get noticed. It’s a way to reward good photography. No one is using statigram to steal your work. LOL! Lay off the GMOs and feed your brains people.

  26. Or you can try to download Repost app, it is way better solution.. You don’t have to send pic to your iPhone anymore :)

  27. yes statigram might help you to repost other user’s instagram without stealing it. It just sharing OK.

  28. To all who are worried about stolen pictures–it’s going to happen with this app or not. Some people ask you to repost things, especially for giveaways. If everyone wasn’t so concerned with ownership the art on this planet would be a lot better.

  31. Hi there,

    I’m new to Statigram and was trying to follow the instructions above re: reposting phots. After I send it from Statigram to my phone (the only option available appears to be via e-mail) the pic automatically saves in my downloads file which isn’t accessible when I want to upload a photo to instagram (only my camera and gallery folders are available).

    Does anyone know how to retrieve the pic from my downloads to instagram? I’m obviously new to Andriod. Thanks so much!

  32. but how do you repost something on your desktop or laptop? I really want to know!!

    Reply
  33. I agree with @what? … I can never get my phone back, or get a new one, and would LOVE to repost from the computer. Do you think anyone can make this a reality? Thanks!

  34. I was going to download statigram but this feature alone made me choose not to. We have an adopted daughter and we are very limiting as to who we allow to follow our feeds where we post pictures of her. We rarely post on FB b/c we can’t tie down the privacy as well. I understand people can screen shot and repost her picture but I’m not going to use a program that looks as if I give them permission to do so. I may be misunderstanding the use of this and if so, please correct me (nicely) but for now this is a feature that will dissuade me from using statigram.
