You've probably seen it on your own Instagram feed, a post that has a little symbol in one of the corners that resembles the "retweet" symbol on Twitter, arrows going in a circle. Usually photos with this symbol feature a caption as well that say something along the lines of "this photo was reposted from X account" or simply says #repost or #regram.

Instagram has yet to make reposting in the app as easy as it is to retweet something on Twitter or reblog something on Tumblr. But there are a couple of options you have if there's a post you really want to add to your own feed while giving the original poster credit.

There are several apps you can use but the easiest option may be taking a screenshot of the original post as you're scrolling through your feed and cropping it to repost it. When you do this you can either leave in the name of the user at the top of the post who originally posted it, or you can crop that out and add a caption that credits that poster with a tag. This isn't the cleanest looking option though.

The apps available in the App Store or on Google Play make this process a little cleaner and more automated.

Repost for Instagram:

You've probably seen photos posted using Repost. When a photo is reposted using the app, a box usually appears a corner of the post that has the original posters username and icon.

It's simple to use, and can be downloaded in the App Store or Google Play, depending on what country you're in. Once you have it downloaded you open Instagram to whatever image or video post you want to repost. Click the "..." symbol in the upper right hand corner of the post and select "Copy Share URL" from the menu that appears.

Then open the Repost app, the photo you copied the share URL for should be there on your homepage. Tap the post to open it and edit it. You can change where the username and icon of the original poster appears. Click repost at the bottom of the page when you're done and then select "Copy to Instagram." From then on the process is the same as if you were posting your own photo. If you paste into the text box, a premade caption carried over from the original post will appear with #repost.

Repost It!:

The Repost for Instagram app is one of the most popular but there are other apps as well that work very similarly. The Repost It! app that used to go by the name "Repost Regram app" offers the same results. The only difference with this app is that in addition to putting the original poster's profile image and username, it also adds the image of the app itself.


And the final popular app is the InstaRepost app. This one won't automatically do the caption and credit for you though, so to be Insta-courteous you should add those in yourself.

Once you download the app, you'll be prompted to log into your Instagram account in the InstaRepost app. Once you do this you'll be able to see a selection of your feed as well as the option to search your feed. Select the photo you want to repost and select "repost." That photo will then be saved to your photo library and you can post it just as you would any other photo once you open the Instagram app. The watermark is clear so this is more appealing for some Instagram users who want a cleaner look.
