Who Can Use It?
In order to Auto-Post you must have an Instagram Business Account.
What Kind of Images Can You Use?
We support JPEG and PNG for the Auto-Post feature as required by Instagram. You can upload images with the maximum file size as large as 8MB.
What Are the Image Specifications?
Images have to be within a 4:5 to 1.91:1 aspect ratio range. In other words, if you take an image using the ‘Square’ option on your phone, that is the correct image ratio. The image resolution is also something to consider and is best to keep between 150×150 and 1920×1080, otherwise your image could be blurry. If it’s smaller or larger, it will be scaled up or down to size.
Minimum Resolution: 150×150
Maximum Resolution: 1920×1080 (higher resolutions will be scaled down to the maximum)
What Can You NOT Auto-Post?

If you follow MACsWomen on Instagram you saw in this social media tip I shared that Instagram made a long overdue and welcome change that marketers and social media managers have wanted for some time – it will allow businesses on Instagram to schedule their posts.
Before, there were unofficial means to aid with this – like tools that would send out a push notification to remind you to publish a post at a given time, for example. Tools like Planoly, SproutSocial and Buffer. But no functionality was available in Instagram itself. The closest Instagram got was the added support for Drafts, which allowed social media managers and other users to prep a post and save it for later publication.
