How to Post to Instagram

One of the biggest benefits of using Creator Studio is that you can draft, edit, schedule and publish to your Instagram Feed directly your computer without a third-party app. It’s ideal when you have professional photos you want to share in your Instagram feed.

To get to the Instagram section of Creator Studio, click the Instagram logo (camera icon) in the top bar. The page theme will turn from Facebook’s signature blue color to Instagram’s purple to help signal which platform you will be posting to.

To create a post, click on the “Create Post” button on the left-hand side of the screen and choose “Instagram Feed” from the dropdown menu.

Next add your caption (it supports a max of 2,200 characters, 30 mentions and 30 hashtags) and add a location (optional). Then upload the photos or videos you want for the post, using one of these options:

  • Click “From File Upload” to upload an image or video from your computer.
  • Click “From Facebook Page” to use an image or video that you’ve already shared on your Facebook Business Page.

You will see the option to crop your image or tag another Instagram profile after your content is uploaded.

If you want to also share this post to your Facebook Business Page, click the checkbox next to your Page under “Post to Facebook.”

Finally, you can select to publish your post immediately, schedule your post or save as a draft to work on later.
