I have an instagram account, but haven't really used it because there doesn't really seem to be an efficient way to get real photos (ones not taken with a phone) into instagram. What's the best way to do that?

Well, the way I do it as a Mac user is to import web sized JPGs of my best photos into my Mac's Photos app, which instantly puts them into my iCloud photo stream. Then they are easily accessed from my iOS devices for posting on Instagram, emailing/texting/showing to people from a mobile device, etc.. For non Apple users, I would imagine you might be able to do something similar with Dropbox or other cloud services like Google Photos or Amazon's cloud photo service, but I haven't tried.

I'm @wnkremer on Instagram (mostly garden pictures, flower and insect macros, etc.)

I use several methods.............

Sometimes I use the Oly app to get the photo to my phone and then edit via SnapSeed and post to IG. Or I edit in LR on my computer and I have a preset for outputting photos to a folder on my dropbox account, from dropbox it's easy getting on phone to IG.

I usually use the Olympus image share app to download it directly to my phone and edit it using Polarr, Photoshop Express or VSCO.

I use Instagram but not a lot due to the square crop.

I prefer EyeEm and upload on a regular basis as well as browse images from other photographers on a daily basis.

A camera with WiFi - Since moving to a GX7 and an X100T I rarely shoot RAW anymore, tend to edit JPEGS in VSCO Cam or Snapseed on my iPhone or iPad and post to Flickr, Facebook or Instagram from there. In all honesty, its been very liberating. I tend to only shoot RAW and edit in LR for planned shoots/paid work.

The VSCO grid pleases me so much more than Instagram - and now you can curate your own collections. I've completely abandoned Instagram because so much of it is "lifestyle" advertisements disguised as photography!
