You may be using lots of hashtags to grow your Instagram followers, but at the same time these hashtags may be annoying or distracting for your existing followers. What's the solution then? The best way out is to hide your hashtags. You basically add enough line breaks to your comment that it forces Instagram to hide that comment because it's too long. It compresses that specific comment (where your hashtags will be) into what looks like this [...]

Here's how you do it:
  1. Use a text editor to save all your hashtags in one paragraph. I use Notes on iOS.
  2. Add 5 dots, with each dot on a separate line. Make sure each dot is on a separate line. See example below.
  3. Add all your hashtags below the last (5th) dot. The hashtags should sit on a new line below the last dot.
  4. Copy & paste all the dots along with the hashtags into a comment on your photo.
PLEASE NOTE: The 5 dots must all be on a separate line. You must copy and paste it into a COMMENT of your photo - NOT THE CAPTION. 
The caption of the photo is the place where you write before you post the photo. It sits directly under the photo. DO NOT copy and paste your hashtags there. Paste it into a new comment AFTER you have posted the photo.

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!!
