PUBLISH IMAGES DIRECTLY TO INSTAGRAM WITH LIGHTROOM

Pro
Getting photos from your computer directly to Instagram has always been a little cumbersome to say the least,  It's designed as a mobile platform and posting pictures that have been taken with a non-connected camera and edited on a computer typically involves some third-party uploading tool or image transfer fiasco and one of the reasons I have been reluctant to embrace Instagram.

I have devised a number of work arounds for my students and clients but none were truly painless....

Until NOW!

I saw this new plugin the other day and have been testing it out on various systems and it works really well
Lightroom plugin makes things considerably easier, at least for those users who use LIGHTROOMLR/Instagram lets you post images to Instagram directly from Lightroom via publish services Once installed you can authorize one or more Instagram accounts. Images are uploaded by dragging them into a publish collection.

You can also have multiple accounts

You can add comments and hashtags directly in Lightroom before uploading.




The plugin can be downloaded and installed for free from the LR/Instagram website but the developers ask for a $10 contribution via registration in the Lightroom Plugin Manager if you like the tool.


Try in out and let me know what you think.  I will be posting more to Instagram
