    Hello fellow Blackhatters,

    I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I'm currently in the process of adding a bunch of accounts and noticed the option to upload CSV files when setting up a campaign. The method I'm currently using is extremely slow and this seems extremely useful. However, I am currently running into some trouble setting the method up. I am willing to paypal someone $5 if they can help me figure it out.

    To start, I've read the guide posted on the massplanner forum here: http://www.massplanner.com/knowledge-base/importing-posts-from-csv-into-your-campaigns/

    However, the issue I'm running into is that I can not find the actual file path to individual photos. As you can see in the picture below, I am only able to find the file path to the actual folder, not the individual image.

    If anyone has any idea how to figure out the individual image file path (in jpg or png format) I would be very grateful. I hope everyone's instagram journeys are going well.

    Also, a small secondary question. If anyone knows how to bold text in the instagram bio, that would also be very helpful.

    Thanks,
    King

    Anyone? I think this would be great to learn because it makes adding photos so easy.

    Have you tried to add the filname after the folder path dude?

    example:
    c:\surfpics\surf_1234.jpg

    For bolding in the bio, you'd need to download a font app from the app store and find a font that's bold. Then type in the notes app (if you use iOS) and paste that into your bio.

    you can extract all the files names from your folder at the CMD prompt, then paste those into your excel document.

    Open Powershell > Type this > $a = gci "C:\Users\Administrator\Pictures\Surf"; ($a | % {$_.fullname}) > file_paths.txt

    Open windows command prompt

    "cd c:\users\administrator\pictures\surf\"

    "dir /s /b > filenames.txt"

    Then copy/paste or import the filenames/path to your csv file.

    in your explorer window right click over your photo and select file properties or file info... the path will be in there. Copy and Paste. Done.

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for the help. I solved the issue by uploading all the pics through an online image hoster which provided direct links. I highly recommend using CSV if you're uploading a lot of images. I now have post lists of over 600 photos for each account.
