If that is true, then that is a game changer. I get bored after the 4th hashtag thingy.

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRR It Works for me too!

You can have some of mine. I've got 27 followers and I've never posted anything there. The only reason I ever joined Instagram was because I came across some photographers I wanted to follow, but I hardly ever look at the site. Maybe now that one can post from the computer I'll try posting there.

OO just looked at it and I have 146 followers LOL

I posted some photos, but mostly used it for liking my sister in laws new farm flower business in England and my brothers classic car interior company. I got all excited yesterday and went to post something then got distracted by a cat video lol

I've had that option for about 6 months or more (they rolled it out to business accounts first) but don't find it too useful . Even though in theory you can load an original size image the web app crops it when loading Portrait orientation images. The other crops sizes they offer are 1:1, 4:5 and 16:9.

I've had some weird looking images in my feed when I've loaded from the computer (they look fine on the computer) and real challenges with uploading more than one image. I don't post much to IG anyway these days so it's not really a problem.
