    I uploaded probably 100 pics in the span of 45 minutes on my 70k account, and now I can't upload anymore? Every time I try the picture just disappears. I didn't know there was a limit!

    There's no limit, but it seems that your account was blocked by suspicious behavior. No real human would upload 100 pictures in 45 minutes. They can easily identify that you're using a bot.

    Try to increase the span between each post. 1 picture per hour is a good way to keep your account healthy.

    Yikes! I had no idea there was a penalty for that. I will definitely chill out. Do you think my account will get banned soon? I'm scared now. I've never been flagged for any other suspicious behavior.

    There are limits, and you hit it. So you need to wait 24h for the limitation to pass

    why the hell would you do such a thing anyway?
    just think about it for a sec, it's pretty annoying for your followers even if those pics are non-spammy

    quality over quantity you know, if it's true for most things, it's exponentially true for instagram, you shouldn't upload more than 1-2 pics per day, big brands only upload 5 pics/week on average

    They suspect suspicious activity when you post over 10 i think it is in an hour.

    Uploading many pics in a short amount of time could really risk your account getting banned. First of all, it's not normal for an average IG'er to upload that many pics (including larger accounts) and second of all, you won't be able to monetize your traffic at it's greatest potential due to the large amount of pic uploads in a short time period.

    Quality over quantity. ESPECIALLY true with accounts as big as yours..

    Hello!

    We created a new user and wanted to import a lot of images (approx. 350) for a competition. The picture with most likes would win.
    After uploading around 100 of them with a reverse-engineered PHP Script for Instagram the upload stopped working.

    The feedback from the endpoint was like before, but the images did not appear in the feed.
    The script used cUrl and spoofed the user agent as a Android-phone.
    Source: lancenewman.me/posting-a-photo-to-instagram-without-a-phone

    Does anyone know exactly what the limitations are?
    How many uploads per hour or per day?
    How long should you wait before posting again?
    How long should the script sleep between each upload?

    We would like to edit the script so we could upload these photos as fast as possible.

    All answers are much appreciated.
    Best regards, Robert Sather.

    Robert, I think you're missing something with your PHP script. Dump complete request/reply here: I mean POST /api/v1/upload/photo/ and POST /api/v1/media/configure/.

    Ok, I checked it out. What you're using is very outdated.

    1. There is version 6 and 7 out already and you're using 4. 6 and 7 have different signing keys, of course.
    2. Both upload/photo and media/configure now have more fields. Some of the fields were removed.
    3. Device ID on your script is being generated every time new. Have at least this one fixed.

    So how you got your account flagged: many different GUIDs, many photos in one hour, pretending to be old IG version nobody is using.

    I disagree with this. Posting 5 pics/day will get you the best results. The way explore tab works, the more you post, the more you gain. If you post 1-2/day your account loses its organic momentum and your account will start to bleed followers daily. Think of Instagram like a fire. You need to keep feeding it or it will die out. Posting 1-2 times per day is ok if you're a botter or masser because your growth doesn't come from posting pics mainly. Big brands are already well known so they grow because of that. All of us normal people are growing from the content we post, not our notoriety. So comparing our accounts to big brand accounts would be like comparing apples to oranges. Just my 2 cents.
