By | December 5, 2021

Do you want to grow Instagram followers/followers and get fame on social networks? Equip yourself with these powerful Instagram tools.

If you want to grow an Instagram following and gain notoriety on the social network, you need to equip yourself with a variety of tools beyond the basic app. The good news is that most of these powerful tools for Instagram are free.

Instagram imposes restrictions on its users on how they can use the app. That’s why you need to turn to third-party apps to avoid distractions like downloading someone’s photos and videos in bulk, or apps for reposting photos and videos. In the same vein, try these others to make you stand out.

Splitagram (Web): How To Split Photos For Instagram Profile Grid

This is a popular trend among Instagram users. You don’t upload the full photo, instead you break it up into smaller squares and upload them all. For someone to see the full picture, they have to go to your profile to see the full feed, which makes the collage go off the grid. It’s a smart way to get people to visit your profile page.

Splitagram makes it easy to create such collages. The web app works perfectly on the phone. Upload an image from your phone’s gallery or camera roll, and Splitagram will automatically split it into three columns, and possibly multiple rows if needed. You will see a preview of what the final image will look like.

Then, follow the instructions on the Splitagram screen to get the correct order to upload them. Do it step by step and share each image as instructed to your Instagram feed.

Koel (Web): Turn Tweets Into Instagram Posts

If you see a great tweet that you want to share on your Instagram feed, don’t just take a screenshot. Twitter’s design looks weird on Instagram, you need to make some tweaks to that tweet. Koel will do it for you.

Copy-paste the tweet into Koel and wait for it to load. You can then change the appearance of Twitter between default, dim, and off. You can also choose to show or hide the number of replies, likes and retweets, or even give the three different colors. And lastly, you can add a background color (solid or gradient) to make it more suitable for Instagram.

Once you’ve adjusted the image to your liking, download it and then upload it to Instagram. You have to admit, it looks a lot better than a regular Twitter screenshot.

Vurku (Web) And Downloader For Instagram (Chrome): How To Download All Instagram User Images Or Videos Or Hashtags

Instagram has an easy option to download and save all your own photos, send you an email with all your data. But if you want to download other users’ pictures and videos or hashtags, an easier option is Vurku and Downloader for Instagram.

Of the two, Downloader for Instagram is the better tool, but it’s only available as an extension for Chrome on the desktop. After installing it, you will see a Download button when you hover your mouse over any image. You can also click on the extension icon for the option to bulk download photos and videos from user accounts.

Vurku is a similar web application, which works with both users and hashtags. You have to register to use it, and the free version has some limitations: 50 posts per search, three searches per day, and five downloads per day. It also marks all downloaded images. The paid version removes all these limitations and will be a better choice than Downloader for Instagram for professionals. The tool adds the ability to export to Excel, and also saves all text and hashtags.

StoryScroll (Windows, MacOS): Turn Web Pages Into Scrolling Videos For Stories

You cannot post links on Instagram unless you have a verified account with 10,000 followers. So how do you promote your own web pages and other content? StoryScroll is a smart way of using Instagram Stories to show auto-scrolling videos.

Here’s how it works. Download and install the software, then paste the URL into it. Click “Create Video” and wait for StoryScroll to generate multiple videos from that informasi. This includes videos for Stories and regular posts, but that takes time. Once ready, transfer the data to your phone and share it on Instagram.

The free version won’t let you add text or change the watermark, but it’s available in a premium version if you feel it’s worth paying for.
