How to schedule photos on Instragam

I hear from time to time that some people are not organised or can remember to share photos on their Instagram account. So I am here to write out basic services you can use to help schedule your photos onto Instagram. I won’t explain how to set up these services as they have instructions within the app.

Photogrid

Before we start talking about scheduling apps, you’ll need a photo editing app which can wither crop photos or add borders into an Instagram Square photo. Any photo shape that is not square format, you’ll have the scheduling app to manually add the photo onto Instagram and won’t share automatically.

Note: Please consult with the photographer that it is OK to crop and add borders to their photos. From my point of view, should a cosplayer ask me if this is OK to modify my photos, I would be fine with it, though can’t hurt to ask. Reminder, not to add on top and filter or further edit a photographers work.

Buffer

This service can be both found as an app and also as a website at www.buffer.com. When setting up, you’ll be asked to change your account type to a business account, do not panic, this just opens up more features and it’s free of charge and does not fundamentally change the look or the usage of your account.

This service you can schedule post not just on Instagram, but also twitter, Facebook, pintrest, and linkedin.

Their service has a premium and free plan where the free plan you can schedule up to 10 photos per social account and can run up to three social media accounts. The free plan allows you to continuously schedule up to 10 photos, so you can keep topping up each social media account and spread them out as often or as little as you like. I tend to top up most evenings when I am at my laptop but also I can add on the fly, from my mobile phone, upload Instagram friendly photos.

When scheduling posts you can either individually share photos to each separate social account, or highlight all or some of the social accounts, and schedule that one photo over multiple accounts without re-typing up the body of the post.

Later.com

Later.com is very similar to Buffer in terms of service and feature, but the main real differences that you can only share up to 30 photos per month per social media account. Each month, your allowance to upload photos resets at the beginning of the month.

All the features mentioned in buffer such as sharing over different social mediums such as twitter, facebook as well as Instagram is there. Also can select multiple accounts to share a single photo.

Later.com allows you upload all the photos to there server, ready to share photos over time, so you do not need to wait to upload your photos, you can upload all your photos you want to share, and Later.com will keep track of which photos have been used so you don’t duplicate what works has already been shared.

Other Services…

I would like to mention that Facebook within their Creator Studio app, where you can share the Instagram post but I have to say that I have not used their service so can’t comment on how the workflow is.

But, recently I have found using Facebook Pages/Creator Studio not very intuitive on how to use their service, compared to how Buffer and Later.com allow you to upload and schedule posts.

I use both these services for both my photography brand of Food And Cosplay and AitchKayCee, and each have there benefits. It would be up to you which of the two fits your workload/lifestyle and how much time you want to spend on scheduling photos onto Instagram/social media.

Cosplayer : jerrmeehanjr I’ve been going to comic con off and on for 10 years, even before The Walking Dead premiered on TV and you didn’t have to worry about it selling out the entire weekend. In all that time I have never actually cosplayed as anything when I went. One time I wore a Boba Fett helmet with a nice sweater but that doesn’t count.  This year I went to comic con as myself. I make cartoons on YouTube and my character is based on me! I created a mask by printing out my cartoon face and gluing it to corrugated plastic. I then used an exacto knife to cut out the mask and painted in the hair, eyes, and tongue. I got velcro straps that I glued and taped down to the back and cut little eye holes out to see.  As far as my experience goes cosplaying as my OC it was a lot of fun. I was nervous at first taking the train in, I’m not entirely sure why but it probably was me worrying about having diarrhea as usual. Once we got in I put the mask on and started handing out stickers. My wife came with me and it was her first comic con so I wanted her to be able to experience everything while we were there. I went on Thursday this year, which was packed! The only negative experience I had was I cut the holes to see out of too small so I had to shuffle everywhere while my wife guided me. Luckily I didn’t trip over anyone but I did hit a few people in the head. Sorry.  I had a lot of good reactions to my cosplay and was even noticed by 2 people which was crazy. That was my first time being noticed! It was funny because I couldn’t see anyone out of my mask and heard someone ask my wife “is that the guy from tik tok?” And she was like uh yes? And they asked to take a photo with me. Then while that was happening another person recognized me too and wanted a photo as well. It was a great feeling because I’m trying to grow my channel and to be spotted even by 1 person out of the packed comic con was cool. I handed out all my stickers and finally took my mask off to enjoy the rest of the day. It definitely made me appreciate cosplayers even more than I already did!  Disclaimer: All images and videos used, do not belong to FnC and belong to their respective owners.

Jollibee from Jollibee (fast food restaurant) /Cosplayer : ADRI.NYAN / Photo:@climacam People kept asking if there was real food in the bucket/peach mango pie container! I told them “No, don’t you think it’d be soggy by now?” I feel like as a Filipino it’s a little bit sacrilegious to eat soggy Jollibee. It’s best to eat it as fresh as possible. Other reactions I got were hilarious, but I especially liked hearing “I have to show my mom/family”. I think seeing Filipinos thrive and enjoy the representation in this silly costume I did is inspiring for me. If anybody reading this hasn’t yet, please try out Jollibee if you’re close to one. If not the chicken then at least the peach mango pie. It’s delightful. I actually found a video from a doll makeover YouTuber named Hextian, who is also Filipino. He made a Jollibee doll and I actually said to my friends I wanted to cosplay her. That was around 2019. I’ve been ruminating on the idea for three and a half years. But at the time, I was still in college with no money and no means of creating something like that. Flash forward to 2022, when planning for Katsucon 2023, I was thinking about what to do in terms of a cosplay for Katsucon. That’s when I said, “Okay, Jollibee cosplays are really rare, especially SEXY Jollibee, why don’t I just try doing it?” My older cousins got me into anime and they used to go to Otakon back in the day. I remember begging my mom to let me go and eventually I was allowed to in 2012. That’s when my oldest kuya (male cousin in Tagalog) asked me “Who will you be cosplaying?” And I said, “Oh, is it required?” He said, “No, but it’s a lot of fun. You should try it out.” So I debated and finally caved in after looking at so many pictures online. I was 14 years old when I got my dad to buy my first cosplay as a birthday gift and it was Maka from Soul Eater. I was hooked since then!
