Still finding my feet with instagram but have loved seeing all your pics, if you like you can find me here as im 1 for using my “proper” camera I keep forgetting about my phone but am trying to get better!

You can also do this by getting a Dropbox account, adding it to your pc and phone, tablet etc. Then put the photos you take with your camera in your Dropbox folder on your pc, they will show up in the dropbox folder on your phone too, then when in Instagram you can select to use a picture from the dropbox account. My phone camera’s not that great either so that’s what I do, except when I take a work in progress shot and then I just use my phone to take a quick picture.

I’ve been using dropbox for a few years and love it. It means I have all my photos handy on my phone in case I’m out and about and want to show somebody, like a portfolio :slight_smile: I also keep my accounts files stored on it too in case anything happens to my computer.

Hope this helps x

Someone asked me about links recently, trouble is I’m not sure about them. I am on Instagram as Quillextra and I’m linked to Twitter. I don’t like Facebook it’s too intrusive for me. Can anyone explain the https things please. Thanks in advance.

You can also do a screengrab on your phone @Birdandmonkey. My 14-year-old son taught me that one.

After several attempts I have finally got instagram to post directly to my fb page. I can choose when it posts for me, it doesn’t do it everytime.

These are the instructions I followed

At the last stage I had to wait a few minutes for it to show me my pages - I think I had been too impatient on previous attempts.

So far I’m very happy with the posts it’s done for me, it’s saved me uploading the same pic and typing similar things twice…although I will have to think more carefully about wording as I’m generally much more brief on instagram than on fb where chat is king.

Ooh yes, I joined recently- still getting the hang of it!

Of those of you who share posts onto your facebook page and get more views that way, are your posts significantly different to those that you normally share on fb? Mine are pretty much the same, but I get way less views (at least half) if I share directly from instagram rather than take the time to copy and paste with the photo onto my page.

I’ve had an account for years with a single photo - of a bluebell wood.
Decided to try it for my glass. Not got very far yet apart from loading 5 photos which was tedious as I don’t use my phone for pictures so had to shoot them across from my pc.

Is there any way to add links —to Facebook page, Folksy listings. I copy/pasted a Folksy link but it’s not clickable.

I’ve been uploading my WIP
