How do I repost on Instagram?

SOCIAL media sites like Instagram have become a way to bring people together – with users now regularly reposting other people’s content.

But just how do you “regram”, or repost another person’s Instagram content?


There are a number of ways to repost a post you want to share on Instagram – either through a third-party app or by screenshotting [/caption]

How do I repost on Instagram?

Unfortunately, there is no quick Repost button that lets you immediately share someone else’s Instagram post – unlike Facebook‘s Share button or Twitter‘s Retweet option.

In order to repost on Instagram, a little more work needs to be done.

And usually, the best way to do that work is through a third-party app – such as Repost for Instagram, or InstaRepost.

Both of these apps work for both iOS and Android phones, and here’s how to use them.


Some third-party apps will allow you to simply copy and paste the original caption and username who shared the post[/caption]

To repost using Repost for Instagram…

  1. First, download the Repost for Instagram app.
  2. Then, go to Instagram and locate the post you wish to repost.
  3. Tap the three-dots icon button ‘…’ – which should be in the top right-hand corner.
  4. Tap Copy Link.
  5. Reopen the Repost for Instagram app.
  6. The copied post will appear in the app’s homepage.
  7. Hit Repost, and then select Copy to Instagram.
  8. You can then edit and filter the post the same way you would if you were uploading your own photo to Instagram.
  9. In order to repost the original caption and username, tap the caption area and select Paste. This will add in the original caption along with a reference to the original user who uploaded the post.
  10. Finally, hit Share.

To repost using InstaRepost…

  1. First, download the InstaRepost app.
  2. When you have the app, open it up and log in using your Instagram username and password.
  3. The InstaRepost app will then show you your current feed on Instagram.
  4. If you cannot see the post you want to repost, hit the magnifying glass icon to search for posts from specific users.
  5. Once you have located the post, tap the icon in the bottom right-hand corner, which looks like an arrow in the corner of a box.
  6. Hit Repost, and then Repost again.
  7. Open up the Instagram app, and you can then retrieve the photo from your camera roll.
  8. You can then edit and filter the post the same way you would if you were uploading your own photo to Instagram.
  9. Unlike with the Repost for Instagram app, InstaRepost will not save the copied post’s original caption and username, so this will need to be entered in manually.
  10. Finally, hit Share.

Of course, you could also go for the more basic, app-free method of screenshotting the photo or video you want to repost, and sharing it that way.

To screenshot, simultaneously hold down the lock button and volume up button on an iOS device, or the power button and volume up button on an Android device.

You can then edit the screenshot as you wish before reposting it on Instagram, for instance by cropping out any unnecessary elements.

But it’s worth remembering that taking a screenshot only works if you are reposting a photo – as it’s impossible to screenshot a whole video.
