    Taking my own pictures is definitely awesome, but I though there are places where I can BUY pictures and be a legal owner of the image, so the istagram wont flag me ?

    I was reading Instagram's T&C, it says that the picture must be fully mine.

    Please share your thoughts.

    delete exif meta data, change the md5, put a filter on an image and you're good to go. Buying pictures would get really expensive if you're looking for HQ pics, unless you have a great budget I would not advice doing that. If you have the money, you're definitely playing safe.

    Yeah, that's what Instagram says but I've barely seen one person who didn't post an image which wasn't theirs. Depending on which images you're posting, if you wanna be somehow "safe" leave credit from where u got the photos and many would not even sue you as they're also winning.

    Half of the images on Instagram are not owned by the owners.

    Use 4k Stogram to download an account's images
    Use Batch Purifier to clear all the images data
    Add your watermark, crop it a little differently and bob's your uncle...

    there are programs for that, it ain't necessary but I'd do that, since the same image or the same file (being identical) have the same md5 which might be recognized faster. more importantly, clear meta data.

    I used to have an md5 changing software for copying YouTube videos and it was free, I can't remember the name but I know they're out there. That should do the trick.

    I just use cc0 material, and credit the creator in my post. Does this make me a sucker? I feel like it's the right thing to do, but I read some good suggestions here as well.

    4kstogram is awesome. Images seem to download at a variety of sizes (I assume what they were uploaded at) with most recent images on the accounts I scrape they come in at 1080x1080px.

    I personally use a program called bordermaker to convert all images to png and add border/watermark - I believe it removes all meta/exif data as well. I am 90% sure it does this thoroughly - what is a good tool to test that it clears them fully?
