    Running Instagram through bluestacks on my PC.
    I don't seem to be able to load any pictures up. Does IG require you to post the correct size image? I thought they were just be resized.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    What are the dimensions for the image that you are trying to upload?

    Got over 15,000 images all varying in shape and size.
    If there is a set size which the images must be uploaded as then I can get to work re-sizing the ones I want to use.

    hmm. Instagram requires pictures that are a perfect square. I recommend getting some HD photos and sizing them to 1000x1000. Don't re-size the pictures of course, just crop them into a square.

    It stop working after you upload pic and try to add effects/fillters ? Same here. Just delete instagram app and install old version from bluestack, not from marketplace and it will work.

    I had some issues with that as well. You definitely need it to be a perfect square (pixels). I had good luck uploading pictures with Gramblr. It only uploads pics to instagram, so no account creation with it. Its a free program. Try it out.

    Bluestacks doesn't work for uploading pics anymore. Try to use a bot like FollowLiker for example

    Resizing it to a square would destroy the picture. Better option would be mass cropping the images.

    If the width is small, crop the image to Width X Width. Else Height X Height.

    Why to pay $49 or more if you can use free program "Gramblr" ?

    The only option I can provide you is google for any good "bulk auto image cropper" software and try couple of them till you are satisfied!
