To use the plugin you must authorize the program to access your account. To do it simply click on the "Authorize" button, login into your Instagram account, confirm and you are done.

After authorization you can choose which items to download, for example you can tick "My Feed" and photos with specific tags. Remember to separate tags with comma (,).

Since feeds and queries with specific tags can find thousands of photos you can limit the amount of photos to download. By default the maximum is 100.

By clicking on the "Settings" button you can change some download settings, for example you can use photos description or owner name as caption.

Instagram Plugin

That's all. Close all windows by clicking on "OK"in order to save changes. Next time the screen starts it will begin to download photos from Instagram and after some seconds you will see them on your screen.
