You can easily, upload live photos to Instagram. Live photo is an awesome feature available to iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s users. Here's how you can share or upload a live photo to your Instagram account:

  1. To create a shareable Live Photo you'll first need to launch the Instagram app, then from the top row of icons select the Your Story circle.
  2. The camera will now open and if you swipe up from the bottom you should see a selection of images from the past 24 hours. Select the Live photo.
  3. At the top of the screen, you'll see four options. The cross on the left lets you cancel the upload, while the three icons on the right allow you to customize the image for Instagram. The smiley faced square lets you add emojis, you can write on the image using the pen icon, while the Aa option is for text.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
