I’ve seen accounts that were really good at promoting** themselves and those Instagrammers tend to succeeded sooner or later. The easiest way to get your composition right is to place your subject right in the centre of the photo. I suggest sticking to one filter on your Instagram feed, it’s the easiest way to get some consistency in your style (more about here) and make your Instagram stand out from the crowd.

However the most important improvement is the introduction of # (called hashtags) in the app.
A hashtag is a “symbol” (or code) that allows web search engines to find and categorize messages, keywords and in the case of Instagram, pictures. For instance, if you type #cat or #cats in one of your pictures, any user anywhere in the world looking for “cat” or “cats” will easily find your picture and others user’s pictures using the same #keyword.
This will enable any user interested in your pictures to easily find them with one single search and also eliminate the need of scrolling through all the pictures on a user’s profile. Adding a hashtag on your cat called Kitty is probably not very relevant for searches; it would be better to add keywords such as #pet or #pets.
Its always interesting for Instagram users to look for pictures of places, use hashtags on them. I strongly recommend you to hashtag the special techniques you use; I do it all the time because it really makes your pictures interesting to others, moreover, it will make it easier for those looking for special images to find your picture.
If you want to let people know who you are you can use the hashtag #allaboutme followed by all your relevant information. Your can start by putting up all the important information and as time goes by and your situation changes, and you can add more relevant elements with their own hashtags.
As you can see, I have used many different hashtags to let other users know about the most important details of my Instagram personality. It’s important for you to know that these #hashtags will make it easier for users that are looking for pictures or people with these keywords to find what they are looking for. Imagine that you and some of your friends want to share and upload pictures of your last party on Instagram. If all of the Instagram users that are going to this party take pictures and tag the comment with #partynicky2011, it will be very easy to find them on any Instagram search. Some users (and soon brands…) use #hasthtags to organize different types of contests and groups. If you launch a contest with the theme ‘’Sunset’’ you would then ask all those wanting to compete to put a hashtag such as #sunsetcontest. This will make it easier for organizers to find all the users and pictures that entered the contest and decide who the winner is.
There is no doubt that this new Instagram upgrade was a big step forward in regards to contest organization, it will be a precious tool for all marketing departments and brands.


We will soon be seeing the vast array of possibilities offered by the use of #hashtags on some of our upcoming posts. If you write a comment with a hashtag on your friend’s stream, the IG interface WONT TAKE IT INTO ACCOUNT. You could suggest a hashtag to a friend but ultimately he will have to add the hashtag on his stream if for it be tagged by the IG App.
This is probably a good functionality to have, imagine how it would be if anyone could tag your pictures?
It’s obvious that the Instagram team will soon have to improve their search engine by adding more search possibilities such as different categories. She then created the #stoneyheart tag for users to tag all their pictures that where inspired by the tutorial’s specific techniques. Send your best #cooking or #food or #dishespics with hashtag: #canalcocina11 and the 30 best pictures will receive our famous Canal Cocina’s apron!
It was a funny picture because he just wanted to highlight the fact that some people were ready to do just about anything to appear on the “Most populars” list.
This gave me the inspiration to come up with a hashtag, a tag that would symbolize the fact that every person in the world has something that is important for them. For example, if you tag your pics with most important tags in the app like #Fashion, your pictures (and then profile) will be probably visited by users who look for this topic and this kind of pics.
There is many web browsers like INk361, Statigram, Webstagram offering information of most important hashtags in Instagram and allowing you to know how many million pics are archived under any hashtags. Recently Many Mobiles Apps are offering interesting information and managing hashtags tools. With InstaTag App , users can select tags based on category, geo-location or even add their own and tag their best Instagram photos with the most popular and relevant hashtags. As i said to previous users it seems there is a problem with last version and some people cannot tag pics. Is there a limit on hash tagging or can the creator of the hashtags block u from using that tag again?
Hi Dawn, there is a big bug on hashtag since yesterday… i hope they will fix it soon!!! Its really a very very specific question and means technical database knowledge that probably only Instagram has. I wanted to know if you could refresh your tags like if I put #good and my pic shows up for a bit then can I delete the tag then put #good again so that it can be on top of the list again? I would like to know if I create a Hashtag i.e for #test and the users tagged the photo and followed the #test.
Fantastic App folks .you have done a really great job sanivg me a tremendous amount of time. If you want to become a member of our new project, you only need to make such a picture and description to write our hashtag.


Thats the fastest way to get instagram followers faster than your friends, mind you, i tried this and works out within 24Hrs. I always spent my half an hour to read this website’s posts everyday along with a cup of coffee.
Also, I’ve seen many accounts with absolutely fantastic photos that do really well too.
One beautiful object, like a flower, nail polish or a cake on a plain background will get more attention then a complex, busy photo. I’m definitely trying to increase my followers, and love to discover new beautiful feeds. At this point al you need to do is type the word you’re looking for and the results will appear below the search window.  For example, if you where looking for pictures related to cars you would type #cars.
Add these tags to your pictures when they reach 100, 200, 300 or more likes. This will make it easier for users to find pictures that have reached these numbers. That?s a very interesting information when you want to find the origin of a viral movement, know what a contest goes about or simply want to know who had the idea first. I have been looking for ways how to search for pictures that are tagged with a hashtag from one user.
Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
But during taging my photos I realized that instead of taging from first to last, I have started from last to first. Or, for instance, like the photo above, place your subject diagonally with the main focus in the top right corner. To find that perfect composition, use the lines on the screen when you open up the camera.
My best tip for getting the lighting right in a photo is playing around with focus on your camera. Think for a minute what this photo is about, what message you’d like it to carry and then express it all in one sentence. And it means when you will visit the stream you will find the pic from the last one to the first one you upload. Is this normal, can I do something to put them in the good order instead of creating another hash tag album? For instance, when taking a flatlay photo, like above, I always tap on the darkest object (i.e.
And is it possible to delete the one I’ve already created so the hash tags with my name, do not become a mess?
And if you’re still not happy with the result, try one of these photo editing apps to brighten up your photo.
