Using hashtags in your description can get some good exposure for your Instagram photo, video, or post. This enables the users to browse images they want to see. Using creative hashtags in your description is one way of drawing attention to your Instagram account. You can tag a photo immediately after taking it or, if you want to alter a photo's tags, you can do so from your profile page.

Adding Tags to an Existing Instagram Photo:
  1. Open Instagram. Use the home screen shortcuts or App Drawer to open Instagram. Make sure that you update the app regularly.
  2. Open your profile. Tap on the person's silhouette icon in the bottom right corner of your screen.
  3. Select a photo you wish to add the hashtags. Tap on the pic so that the image/video expands to full size.
  4. Open the image/video options/menu. Tap on the three dots in the top-right corner of your screen to open the menu.
  5. Select 'Edit'. This will send you to the page from where you can modify your picture/video's description and tag people in the picture/video.
  6. Type in your hashtags. Do this by typing each word with a '#' symbol directly preceding it (without spaces). Try to be relevant; usage of irrelevant or unrelated popular tags on your photo/video might lead someone to report your photo/video.
  7. Tap 'Done'. You have now successfully hashtagged your Instagram photo/video.

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.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
