Whether you're creating cinemagraphs on Cinemagraph Pro for macOS or Cinemagraph Pro for iOS, you can post them on Instagram in a few simple steps.


Cinemagraph Pro for macOS

When you've completed your cinemagraph click Export and choose H.264 (MP4). All videos under 60 seconds uploaded to Instagram have the potential to autoplay and loop. I recommend exporting your cinemagraph between 20-30 seconds so you can upload the same MP4 to Facebook as well. Export the video and transfer it to your device via AirDrop, Dropbox or another file transfer service and upload it directly to Instagram.


Cinemagraph Pro for iOS

There are two ways you can upload your cinemagraph to Instagram.

1.   When you've completed your cinemagraph tap Done and then Export. Tap on Repetitions and select Instagram. Tap Save to save the cinemagraph to your device and upload it directly to the Instagram app.

OR

2.   When you've completed your cinemagraph tap Done and then Export. Tap on Repetitions and select Instagram. Tap Share and select Instagram.

* If you don't see the Instagram app in your sharing options, swipe to the end of the list and tap More to view your Activities. Enable the Instagram app and tap Done. Select Instagram in your sharing options which will open your cinemagraph in a new post on Instagram.
