    the best source is instagram itself, because you don't have to worry about the image size, cropping, distorting as the pics already come from instagram and if you have a scraper, you can scrape such nice pictures en masse what you wouldn't be able to get anywhere else

    Now the folks that promote their services will start to explain you how you can scrape images from google, pinterest, weheartit and even from instagram. This is what most people do actually. But beware ... if someone see his picture on your account, he will start to cry a lot. So what I do is to scrape the images of some dumb hot whore that have 1000+ pictures of herself in the disco toilet from my facebook friends. In my country IG is not popular, so the chance that stupid bitch to see herself in IG is near to impossible. Even if she do, well she will be happy, because someone choose her pics. She is famous man, she will love it.

    Yes, you are limited in niche "selfie", using this method, but it's a lot safer. Also from what I see, niches in IG are not that important. The dumb kid like everything. I have the feeling that they don't even look the picture like a fucking zombies. Stupid new generation how not to bank em hard ?

    best of luck

    Twitter/Tumblr/Pinterest. I try not to take any picture that isn't "popular" if you know what I mean. If it went viral, I'll use it since its going to be everywhere and I don't have to worry about making going nuts cause it isn't my picture.

    Tumblr is easily the best source for me. I use TumblRipper to rip the images - you can use it to also rip Instagram pictures.

    You go through 30 of your favourite IG accounts and use their photos. Credit them if it's their original. 95% of the time it isn't.

    By curating the curated, you save a lot more time and creating something original. A finer product (at least to you) of curation.
