If you already use Preview app, you know what’s going on. Keep scrolling to the tutorial.
If you don’t know about Preview, get excited. Here’s a quick introduction:
Preview app is an app to plan, design and manage your Instagram. You can schedule as many photos, videos and albums as you want. Your “Preview feed” will look like your Instagram feed.
The whole purpose of the app is to help you see what your feed will look like before you post on Instagram.
What does it have to do with repost?
Well, compared to other repost apps, Preview app allows you to repost Instagram posts and design your feed at the same time. You can change the order of your repost photos/videos/albums by drag and dropping them. You can upload your own photos too. You are also able to prepare your caption, use your own hashtags (or even find hashtags within the app), edit the photos and schedule the posts.
You can repost as many Instagram photos, videos and albums as you want.
Ok, here is how to repost Instagram posts using Preview:
1. Press on the “+” button and select “Repost”
If you are new on Preview, your Preview feed will be empty. It will look like the screenshot below.
- Press on the + button
- Select “Repost”
2. Press on the Instagram logo
This will open Instagram. Find a post you want to repost.
3. Press on the 3 dots “…”
Once you find someone’s post you want to repost, press on the 3 dots “…” that are on the top right corner of the post.
4. Select “Copy Link”
5. Come back in Preview app
Now come back to your Preview app. The post will be added inside the app.
You have 2 choices:
- Keep going and repost more Instagram posts, or
- Press “Done”
After you press “Done”, the Instagram posts will appear in your Preview feed.
Like I said before, you can edit the photos, change the caption or schedule the post.
You can also add more photos so you can start planning your feed. See this blog post to reveal all the features you can use.
6. Post on Instagram
If you want to post on your Instagram feed now:
- Select the post
- Press on the “Export” button
- Select “Instagram” (iPhone: “Copy to Instagram”)

- Paste the caption and hashtags
(Preview automatically copied them for you, no need to go back inside Preview)
And that’s it!
