    Sometimes I post other people's pics(mainly fashion products) and I tag them on the pics. Should I also @their account at description like "from @xxx" or "via @xxx".... Actually, I prefer only tag at pics. But I am worried that it is not enough.. So I am trying to have some suggestions here. Thank you!!

    If you're posting pics for instagram i'd highly recommend that you take pics from another source like from a main picture posting source like google. If you're going to use something from google make sure you go under the usage rights tab and under the labeled for reuse section where you can use those pictures freely without getting copyright issues.

    I suggest you give the credits provided in the caption, so you save misunderstandings with the owner.:)

    Hi there, I read Instagram Terms of Service a lot of times and i remember that to give credit to someone you just need to tag them in the photo or just mention in the caption. You can avoid doing both of these. Cheers

    What i've been doing is sometimes i give credit to people and block accounts where i scrape their picture from... never had any trouble... currently have 300k follower... but i do sometimes give credit every 2 days...

    This is a good idea, I found this option on google images last week and when I need more pics I'm definitely going to be using this. I put @myaccount in text on the pics I posted and have stopped that because some of my followers started linking the original users lol. So I deleted their posts, blocked their accounts as well as the original owner accounts so it wouldn't spread.

    If you're going to tag the original owners, I recommend doing 'via #xxx' instead of 'via @xxx' , so that the owners don't see your post but it still looks like you're a good guy tagging them ;)
