Tips on how to ask Instagram Users for Permission to use their Content

Instagram's Community Guidelines clearly state that no user should repost any content without permission from the account owner.

  • Comment on the photo ⟹ Add a comment on the photo you want to use with an @mention to the user. This way, they'll be notified of your comment and see that it's directed to them. 
  • Direct Message the person via Instagram ⟹ If you don't want anyone to see your comment, you can send the user a DM (direct message) through Instagram's DM box. For users who receive a lot of comments on photos, this may be a better choice as comments tend to get lost in the stream. 
  • Connect with the person via email ⟹ If the user includes their email or other social media handles in their bio, it might be better to reach out to them through email rather than Instagram. An email appears more professional, and won't get lost in the notifications and noise on Instagram.
