2 Instagram Tricks You Don’t Know About

Remove Yourself From Tagged Photos

Did your “friend” tag you in a hideous photo? Did a marketer tag you in a promotional post trying to get your attention? Both are annoying and warrant your removal from their post.

Photos that you are tagged in do not show up in your followers feed but they do remain on your profile. If you click on the right-most icon on your profile (the tag shape with the person silhouette) you’ll see all the posts you’ve been tagged in. And anyone who looks at your profile can see these images.

If you don’t want a tagged photo of you on your profile, you have two options: remove the tag or keep the tag but not show the image in your profile.

Go to the tagged image and click on the three-dot button at the bottom of the post. Select “Photo Options”. You can choose to “Show in My Profile” (the defaulted setting) or change it to “Hide from My Profile”. This keeps the tag active on the photo but doesn’t show it in your list of tagged photo.

If you want to remove yourself from the photo altogether, select “More Options” and tap on “Remove Me from Photo”. The photo will not appear in your profile and the original photo will no longer reference you.

Share an Instagram Photo to Another Site After Uploading

You probably know that you can share your Instagram post to Facebook or Twitter at the same you upload it to Instagram. But you can also go back and share an Instagram post after you’ve already uploaded it.

Find the Instagram post in your gallery that you want to share. Click on the three-dot button at the bottom of the post and select “Share”. The photo and caption will appear as how it will be shared. The original Instagram caption is listed. If you want to edit the caption to say something else, edit it here.

Choose the account to share the post to and proceed with the sharing process. That’s all there is to it!
