    Hi,

    is it possible? Maybe there is software for that? I want to scrape users for certain hashtags. I know that FollowLiker can scrape users by hashtags and I have FL, but my brother using in on another computer...

    So to be more productive I want to turn USER IDs to IG usernames to import them to MassPlanner. I scrape usernames by hashtags using this method:

    Its not a big deal if it cannot be done, but it should be very useful for me (and others also) if someone can share some ideas on this...

    Thanks!
    cwh

    Humm great idea. I am going to add this feature into my Instagram Data Grabber Pro version tonight. You will be able to load a list of IG usernames into the bot then it will quickly build a .csv with username,id

    Edit: Just finished building that module and will be updating the bot in about 20 mins.

    Here is a screen shot of the completed module: http://grab.by/L4Au
    and here is a screen shot of the converted list: http://grab.by/L4Aw

    Edit#2: Just finished compiling the new update. You can check out the instructions and features for that specific feature via this screen shot: http://grab.by/L4Bk

    Hey just letting you know I just updated my bot to be able to convert ID's to usernames as well. Before it just had the option to convert Username to ID but now it can do it both ways. Let me know if you are still interested.
