Import Your Instagram Library into a Google Plus Album

Instagram import to Google plus Y’all know how much I love Instagram. My heart will always be with Twitter but I do like the customization and photo integration of Google Plus. I found an easy work around to import your entire Instagram library to a Google Plus album. Ready to learn how? Good.

Picassa is the Google Plus photo platform. Soon it will be renamed ‘Google Photos’ by the way. We’ll call it Picassa for now. Download Picassa if you do not already use it. When you make new albums it is easy to share them on Google+ by enabling sharing and a quick sync.

Now, the fun part.

Instagram to Google Plus album Instaport is a free third party application that archives all the photos in your Instagram library in a .zip file for free.

(Side Note- Be sure to give this developer a tip if you use the app. We sometimes get spoiled by all the available free applications online, but it is important to remember that individual developers probably need help making ends meet like everyone else. Click on his Paypal and show some love, OK?)

Simply log in to Instaport with Instagram and follow the steps on the handy slideshow below.
